The ISAS03-030 is a piezoelectric AE sensor with integrated preamplifier based on intrinsically safe electronic design making it suitable for installation in ATEX zone 0 environment. ISAS3-030 has a recommended bandwith for application from 25 kHz to 100 kHz with peak sensitivity at 55 kHz. The integrated preamplifier has 20 dB gain and supports Automatic Sensor Test (AST) for judging sensor coupling. The advantages of ISAS3 include the intrinsically safe and robust sensor design, the ATEX certification, ingress protection class IP68 and water and oil resistance up to 12 bar.
