1283 – USB AE Node

No items found.

The 1283 USB AE Node is a full-featured, low-cost Acoustic Emission testing equipment that plugs conveniently into and is powered by the USB port of a user’s PC or laptop to maximize portability and versatility. While the system possesses all the features, capabilities and performance of a larger, standalone chassis, users also get the benefits of a USB connection – which means portability and connectivity whether you’re in the field or the lab. A single channel Acoustic Emission equipment in its base model can be expanded to four channels while accepting various sensors (single ended or differential) amplified by an internal low-noise preamplifier. This easily interfaces to a notebook or PC running Windows and MISTRAS’ renowned AEwin™.
