Within the RAM-5000 series the SNAP system has been developed specifically for research on non-linear acoustic phenomena. Some examples of important applications include: metal fatigue, micro cracking, bond strength of adhesives, metal embrittlement, and properties of coatings. The RITEC SNAP incorporates a number of unique circuits designed to facilitate the determination of these properties using a variety of techniques. A standard SNAP system consists of the following modules. However, specific adaptations to your special measurement needs are possible. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
|Gated Amplifier Unit||2||Each unit can be individually set to a specific frequency.
The delay and the phase between the bursts can be set.
|Timing Unit||1||Timing of the pulse burst and setting of the receiver gate.|
|Synthesizer Unit||3||For high resolution frequency control and the ability for
rapid frequency sweeps.
|Phase Detector||1||Phase sensitive superheterodyne receiver to improve
the signal detection in noisy environments.
|Integrator Unit||1||Gated integrators for precise measurement of phase and amplitude.|
