Break new grounds with a game changing measurement system

Thanks to its wide range of applications and its reliability, acoustic emission (AE) is nowadays a well-established tech-nique in the fields of non-destructive testing (NDT) and structural health monitoring (SHM). The intrinsic limitations of electrical transducers have limited its fields of application in many industries.

By overcoming the constraints of existing classic electric systems, OptimAE opens new measurement scenarios in extreme conditions and extends the benefits of acoustic emission to new industries.

Optimae - Acoustic Emission Sensing System

OptimAE interrogator

The OptimAE interrogator is a modular readout that allows the capture of the most prominent acoustic emission features and gets the best out of the 6300 series AE sensors.

6300 series sensors

The 6300 series sensors are designed to deal with the most challenging environments, for example extreme temperatures, high voltage zones, radiation (EMI) and explosive hazardous areas (ATEX zones). 

OptimAE software

The OptimAE software package integrates all the features an AE user could desire in an intuitive and user-friendly environment.

OptimAE delivers the great benefits of fiber optic sensing while offering the same ease of use, reliability, and flexibility of state-of-the-art electric systems. Including a modular acquisition unit, a broad sensor portfolio and a dedicated AE software package. OptimAE can answer the needs of all users from lab-scale to industrial large-scale solutions.

The unique interferometry measurement principle and the advanced transducer design allows OptimAE to achieve state-of-the-art sensitivity, competing with the best electrical systems available on the market.
