The analysis of vibrations excitation in surface acoustic wave vibrations sensors is the aim of our work. The sensors are parts of electronic warning system which is intended to be mounted at fences of guarded object. The vibration excitation with expected acceleration is needed during experiments. Elements of fences are replaced by tense strings for experimental purposes and the surface acoustic wave vibration sensors are fastened to these strings. Analysis of the assembly string-sensor takes into account not only the mass of sensor but its moment of inertia, too. Free vibrations of string-sensor assembly are considered. The standard excitation by pulling off string in chosen point causes vibrations. The normal vibrations of assembly (frequencies, orthogonal set of normal functions) are calculated and used for calculations of free vibrations. The spectrum of the standard free vibrations is calculated. The results will be used in the experimental stand. The calculations enable excitation of vibrations with expected spectrum. The stand enables tests of the whole warning system. The thresholds of detection and reaction at concurrent intruder alarm will be investigated at this laboratory stand.
