SNAP-wwwWithin 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.


Module Number Function
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.
