Dear Mr. Mindaugas
There are 3-ASTM(1106 Primary Calibration,Secondary Calibration and Reproducibility
of Sensor Response)standards 1-JNDI(Reciprocity Standard) and 1-ISO new standard
that is really USA's Reciprocity Standard.
Physical Acoustics Corporation supplies these calibrations with every AE sensor we
make and we will be delighted to discuss this further.Additionally, the Institute of
Acoustic Emission in Paris France is in the final stages of obtaining the necessary
licenses to do the same types of calibration that are traceable to NIST and thus, ISO.
New Russian company diaPAC Ltd. will have soon the same capabilities.
Sotirios Vahaviolos,Ph.D.

Re: Calibration of acoustic emission tranducer
reply by Udo Schlengermann :

There are 3 European Standards on Acoustic Emission:
EN 13477-1: Equipment description
EN 13477-2: Verification of operation characteristics
EN 13554: General principles

Kind regards

ISAFE3 Intrinsically Safe Sensor System

ISAFE3 intrinsically safe sensor system of Vallen Systeme is especially targeted at the petrochemica
...
l - as well as oil and gas transportation industry. The sensor system is designed for permanent monitoring or periodic inspection tasks. Sensors are available for different AE-frequency ranges optimized for corrosion and fatigue crack detection and other applications. The ISAFE 3 sensor system consists of an AE-sensor (model ISAS3) certified according to ATEX/IEC for installation in zone 0, gas group IIC, IP68, 20 to +60 °C, and a signal isolator (model SISO3) certified for installation in zone 2. An ISAS3 sensor can be mounted in atmosphere or submerged, e.g. in water or crude oil. It is supported by mounting tools for temporary (magnets) or permanent (welded) installation. ISAFE3 supports automatic sensor coupling test and can be used with any AE signal processor supporting 28V supply at 90 mA peak, e.g. Vallen Systeme ASIP-2/A.
