Balanced Armature Check (BAC)
Optional module of the KLIPPEL QC SYSTEM
The performance of balanced armature transducers depends on the rest position of the armature, which should be centered properly in the magnetic gap. An offset generates excessive nonlinear distortion and reduces the peak excursion and acoustical output. Measuring the armature offset of the final transducer is hardly possible with mechanical or optical sensors.
The Balanced Armature Check is a unique measurement tool dedicated to testing electro-magnetic transducers on the production line. The armature offset in μm and effective linear parameters are determined from a purely electrical high-speed measurement. This gives valuable diagnostics information to minimize rejection rate.
- Armature offset in μm
- Patented large signal identification
- High speed test: 0.5 - 2s
- Linear parameters: Re, fs, Qts, Le
- Peak excursion of armature (without laser)
- Immune to production noise
