System for noise and vibration diagnostics

hluk-perex-02.jpg This mobile system is designed for laboratory as well as operative/normative noise and vibration analysis, both indoor and outdoor. It is universal equipment composed of two parts: independent hand-held two-channel sound/vibro meter with the acoustic intensity probe and four-channel analyser "all-in-one" controlled with a laptop. Other equipment is available for complex noise and vibration measurement, mechanical signal diagnostics, recording, analysis, data visualization and further processing.

Typical applications

  • sound source localisation using an acoustic intensity probe, near field noise measurement
  • estimation of vibro-acoustic parameters of technical devices, constructions and processes, e. g. HVAC devices and components, flowing medium sources (compressors, fans, vacuum pumps, pumps, air conditioning units etc.), noise reduction components
  • aero-acoustics – flow generated noise (turbulence, wakes, etc.)
  • spectrum analysis, order tracking, waveform recording, transient capture and SRS
  • diagnostics of technical problems of constructions and machines, rotating machinery analysis
  • modal testing
  • sound quality analysis – psycho-acoustics (e. g. according ISO532A, B)
