Linearly Polarised Shear Wave

Linearly polarised bulk shear wave probe (LPS3035) for general purpose use, such as with Sonemat's GS2020 EMAT adaptor box system or Sonemat's PR5000 EMAT Pulser-Receiver.

Typical applications for this EMAT include: wall thickness measurements and acoustic birefringence measurement due to stress or texture.


Type: Pulse-echo
Working Principle: Lorentz (will also use magnetostrictive effect if available).
Wave Type: Normal incidence, linearly polarised bulk shear wave (Note: polarisation direction is parallel to BNC socket direction as standard).
Excitation Frequency: Broadband (spike), optimised for peak energy around 5 MHz.
Working Voltage: 400 V - 1000 V.
Magnet Type: Single Neodymium Iron Boride (NIB) magnet; working field normal to sample.
Wear Face: Ceramic or metal - customer specification. 
Connector: BNC Standard 50 Ω, or Lemo 00. 
Temperature Range: 0 - 80 °c.
Recommended Driver: Sonemat GS2020 EMAT adaptor box with any modern flaw detector, or Sonemat PR5000 EMAT Pulser-Reciever.
Options: High temperature and high signal variants are available.
