Marposs has designed AE (AcousticEmission) Monitoring Nodes for 2 sensors that can be connected using quick-release connectors. In order to meet the application monitoring requirements for machining processes and dressing on grinding machines, various types of AE sensor are available:

AE - Liquid sensor

AE - Ring sensor

AE - Fixed sensor

AE - Internal spindle sensor

AE - Rotating sensor 

Each AE Node is manufactured in stainless steel and may be installed directly in the working area (WET area), at a short distance (typically 3 m) from the single sensors.

The Nodes convert the analogue signals from the individual sensors to digital signals. In this way it is possible to transfer the values to the system Master via the MMSB (MarpossMeasure System Bus) in digital format, thus avoiding the Signal to Noise ratio quality issues that affect analogue signals, and which are the result of the length of traditional cables.

The AE Nodes can be connected together using the dedicated accessories or, depending on the topology of the network managed by the MMSB, by using the special cables, which have been designed, together with their connectors, to withstand the typical conditions inside the machine working area.
