Bruel & Kjaer is adding the new Pulse 13 to its Pulse data analysis platform family.
Pulse 13's application packages have been created using feedback from engineers who deal with high-productivity demands on a daily basis. As a result, Pulse 13 has a simpler version of the user-friendly start-up tool StartSmart. Designed to make setup and configuration much easier, SmartStart II enables Pulse configuration and project setup to be performed in one view - and requires just one click of a button to make a measurement.
Released for sale during November 2008, Pulse 13 is fully compatible with Bruel & Kjaer's innovative LAN-XI Data Acquisition Hardware. Built to conduct noise and vibration tests inside demanding environments such as aircraft and vehicle cabins, LAN-XI is a modular system with a tough magnesium casing that enables it to endure rough handling and still operate without any problems.
As the type of test for which data analysers are typically used can vary, the piece of hardware has been created to perform any type of test: from simple two-channels such as resonance tests of wind turbine blades, to multi-channel (up to 1000) tests with several large rack systems used for advanced noise source identification.
It also makes the testing of larger vehicles such as aircraft, ships and trains much simpler. Any number of individual modules can be placed around interior cabins, enabling analysis to be carried out in one go, unlike older systems that require multiple tests to be carried out with a single unit that is continuously relocated. LAN-XI can also be used for analysing buildings and other large structures such as bridges or wind turbines.
Bruel & Kjaer UK is running a free Sound and Vibration Workshop on 12 November 2008, aimed at anyone involved with automotive, mechanical or general industrial engineering industries. This practical, demo-orientated workshop is made up of three sessions: Advanced Acoustics, In-vehicle Automotive SQ with NVH Simulator; and Analysis Techniques with Pulse.
