New Sound and Vibration Analyser is ideal entry-level platform for R&D and troubleshooting applications. A new, easy-to-use sound and vibration analyzer developed to provide quick, cost-effective solutions for sound and vibration measurement, analysis and troubleshooting applications has been launched by international acoustics and vibration specialist, Brüel & Kjær. PULSE LiteTM is an entry-level analyzer platform based on proven Windows® technology that enables engineers to immediately start troubleshooting or studying the sound and vibration aspects of a wide range of engineering applications. The system's user-friendly software has been developed to minimize an engineer's set up time and ensures that error-free sound and vibration measurements can be made after only three clicks of a mouse by using pre-defined display templates that cover many standard measurement tasks. Ideal for troubleshooting investigations, PULSE Lite is also an excellent cost-effective R&D tool for manufacturers in the automotive, consumer goods and IT industries. Rotating machinery manufacturers will also find the system well suited for machine diagnostics/troubleshooting applications such as investigating motors, engines and compressors. An excellent future-proof platform for universities, PULSE Lite enables students to quickly learn how to make general sound and vibration measurements at a basic level but with the benefit of being able to scale up the system to tackle much more complex tasks quickly and easily. PULSE Lite is readily scalable to Brüel & Kjær's well-proven PULSE platform that is the result of one of the largest software development programmes in the history of sound and vibration measurement. There are more than 3000 PULSE systems operating worldwide and the PULSE multi-analyzer platform is the global leader in the mid range sound and vibration analyzer market. The PULSE Lite system allows operators to make measurements in the field or the laboratory, process data wherever they want, connect a PC to a front-end via a standard LAN or a wireless LAN, operate the system's front-end remotely, or hot-swap batteries without disrupting the measurements or compromising the data. PULSE Lite comes in three configurations: A basic 2-channel FFT analyzer-based system with a run up/ run down analysis option A basic 4-channel FFT analyzer-based system with a run up/ run down analysis option A basic 2-channel CPB analyzer-based system The task-oriented user-interface consists of a simple menu bar with standard functionality, default set-up values and a task bar. The task bar contains two menus or task groups (Setup and Display) and is designed to save measurement time and limit errors. The Setup menu consists of four icons: Project Information, Hardware Setup (not necessary if you use TEDS transducers), Measurement Setup (pre-set with most common measurement values) and Export. Clicking on each item in turn and following the instructions enables users to be guided error-free through each measurement step. The Display menu consists of predefined displays tailored to different measurement tasks. PULSE Lite features status indicators to give users complete control of the measurement task. The indicators are a time saving feature that clearly show measurement progress as well as quickly highlighting if something goes wrong so that the measurement can be immediately interrupted and restarted. The system has a comprehensive help facility on-line at all times. A future-proof investment choice, PULSE Lite is suitable for those who do not require a system as sophisticated as a full PULSE system in the short term but may wish to grow their measurement capabilities in the longer term. For novices a basic introduction to sound and vibration measurements is included. However, if a user's measurement needs suddenly change PULSE Lite can be easily upgraded to a more powerful PULSE solution. The hardware will remain the same but users can simply scale up their system by adding extra functions from the extensive library catalogue of PULSE software applications. To immediately start making measurements a user simply only has to use PULSE Lite's TEDS transducers with pre-set measurement configurations that cover up to 80 percent of typical sound and vibration measurements. PULSE Lite's hardware database stores information when a transducer is added to a channel. This information is automatically retrieved if an IEEE P1451.4-capable transducer with standardized TEDS is connected to the front-end. The data captured by PULSE Lite is saved in ASCII format and can be easily exported to other processing applications or directly to Microsoft® Excel. The software's provision of standardised data templates offers major time saving benefits by simplifying the post-processing of data. An on-line demo of PULSE Lite's capabilities is available at or alternatively a free demo CD-ROM can be ordered from Brüel & Kjær by calling +44(0) 1438 739000. __________________________________________________ For more information, please contact :- Bruel & Kjaer UK Ltd.
