Milestones/History


2016

Vallen AE Suite Software 2016: It’s the next evolutionary step so accelerate measurement procedures and simplify AE-data analysis. Some key improvements are, algorithms for defect localization at objects, wizard based configuration setups, 3D visualization and system verification according to EN 13477-2.


2015

SAAMMx20, a Stand-Alone AE Monitoring Multiplexer: The first AE stand-alone structure and health monitoring device with multiplexing capabilities, low power consumption and standard industrial communication interface.


2014

Intelligent waveform picking: The so called "duration adapted transient recording" feature captures automatically the complete AE-Waveform, including user defined pre- and post-samples. This enables new post-processing strategies to extract valuable information from the recorded waveform data.


2013

SQLite3 database file format: Vallen Systeme introduces a ground breaking and open file format to the worldwide Acoustic Emission society! The SQLite3 database file format enables fast and flexible data processing for any customer, supporting Vallen analysis software as well as third party analysis tools like Matlab. 


2012

Intrinsically safe product family ISAFE3: This product family enables customers to install AE-sensors in hazardous areas, even in Zone 0.


2011

AMSY-6: The next evolutionary step for AE-Systems was released. It is based on the established AMSY-5 and driven by many customer demands. The key highlights are, USB 2.0 High-Speed, extended flexibility for multi-chassis applications, improved system performance and optimized reliability. 


2007

ASIP-2: New 2 channel AE-data acquisition board with high performance DSP capabilities! Most important features are: On board AE-feature and waveform processing, >500 digital selectable 8th order bandpass filter, 25 ns high resolution time stamping, 18 Bit and 40 MSPS signal resolution and many more
