The VS150-K2 is a passive piezoelectric AE sensor with integral cable. Its frequency response is characterized by a peak at 150 kHz where it exhibits a resonance. It is suitable for almost all AE application. The VS150-K2 has a full metal housing and a watertight cap. It is rated IP68 and watertight up to 10 bar (maximum water depth of 100 m). The mechanical design makes it especially suited for adhesive mounting it to a test object.
