Pulsed Electro-Accoustic (PEA) Systems
The Box Elder Innovations Pulsed Electro-Acoustic (PEA) Measurement System is designed for characterization of embedded charge in thin dielectric films.
Our systems are developed and manufactured in the United States and can be adapted to customer's needs for testing materials in ambient pressure and atmospheric conditions or within an environmental chamber using temperature and vacuum control.
The PEA Measurement System software capabilities include:
Model calculations add the benefit of helping operators develop the intuition and understanding of waveform behavior, which is needed for interpretation of measurements and design of the experiments.
Our PEA Measurement System has many relevant applications, such as:
Our system is also relevant to research institutions and industries that have interest in studying the behavior of charged dielectric films.
A known cause for satellite failure is charge build-up in dielectric films used for thermal and electrical insulation in spacecraft. This build-up can lead to electrostatic discharge events that can damage satellite components.
The Box Elder Innovations' PEA Measurement System is a laboratory-based system that provides a means to perform controlled studies on charge build-up and migration behavior in thin dielectric films. Results from these studies are essential in development of modified or new materials that behave as insulators, but will dissipate embedded charge which will mitigate problems caused by electrostatic discharge events.
