VS150-RIC

The VS150-RIC is a piezoelectric AE-sensor with integrated preamplifier. Its frequency response is characterized by a peak at 150 kHz where it exhibits a resonance. It is suitable for almost all AE application and especially suited for integrity inspection of metallic pressure vessels.The integrated preamplifier has 34 dB gain and supports pulse through for automatic sensor testing.
