The paper presents surface acoustic wave vibration sensor electronic system. The system cooperates with surface acoustic wave delay line. The sensor has been designed for electronic warning systems. The sensor is a four-terminal network. In the system, there is a cascade connection of sensors by means of coaxial cable. Test signal and constant supply voltage are jointly sent between sensors. Separating the signals, their summation and amplification of test signal as well as matching the line to impedance 50 Ω are performed by surface acoustic wave vibration sensor electronic system. The electronic system devices and the making of them are discussed. System development of such a sensor is presented and its design is analysed. Experimental examination results of surface acoustic wave vibration sensor are presented. Parasitic effects occurring in vibration sensor electronic system operation connected with electromagnetic coupling and ground current coupling are discussed.
