National Instruments rolled version seven of the NI Sound and Vibration Measurement Suite. The latest version 7.0 extends analysis functionality with NI LabVIEW virtual instruments (VIs) for performing psychoacoustic measurements, making it possible for engineers to quickly set up tests to quantify sound quality. Sound and Vibration Measurement Suite 7.0 is priced from $3,999 (€3,699 or ¥588,000).
The Sound and Vibration Measurement Suite 7.0 supports full-featured sound quality analysis, so engineers can ensure high-quality acoustics in their designs. The LabVIEW VIs in the Sound and Vibration Measurement Suite also contain octave analysis, frequency analysis and order tracking for automotive, military and aerospace and mechanical and structural designs. Engineers quickly and efficiently can get their applications started with the configuration-based Sound and Vibration Assistant or with more than 50 ready-to-run LabVIEW example code bases provided in the Sound and Vibration Measurement Suite.
Sound and Vibration Measurement Suite is ideal for machine monitoring, machine health, and machine efficiency applications. Engineers can develop applications faster by using examples for tachometer processing, order spectra and waterfall plots. The Sound and Vibration Assistant now includes new machine monitoring displays to quickly configure machine diagnostic utilities. The new displays provide diagnostics for motor balance and shaft position in addition to more traditional order analysis displays.
