New pocket-sized Sound and Vibration Analyser
provides handy entry-level solution.
A new, smallest ever, full-featured sound and vibration
analyser has been launched by international acoustics
and vibration specialist, Brüel & Kjær.
The easy-to-use analyser was developed to provide a quick,
cost-effective solution for noise and vibration measurement,
analysis and troubleshooting applications by providing engineers
with the power of a CPB, FFT or Run-up/Run-down analyser in
a ultra compact PC card and break-out box package small
enough to fit into an accessory pocket of a laptop bag.
The PULSETM Lite 2.0 Pocket Noise and Vibration Analyser,
Type 3560-L, is an entry-level analyser platform based on proven
Windows® technology that enables engineers to immediately
start investigating or studying the sound and vibration aspects
of a wide range of engineering applications including automotive,
white goods and rotating machinery as well as being ideal for
education, consultation and service requirements.
The powerful pocket analyser has been designed to be so
simple-to-operate that novices and experts alike can start making
valid sound and vibration measurements within an instant. The
analyser is also the only entry-level analyser that is part of a
complete, sophisticated noise and vibration measurement
Based on the powerful, well proven PULSE platform technology,
the PULSE Lite 2.0 3560-L analyser ensures that if measurement
requirements change or become more complex there is always
a simple upgrade path to achieve more sophisticated results.
Ideal for vibration, acoustic and impact testing applications the
PULSE Lite 3560-L offers engineers the capability to make
high-resolution (24-bit AD) measurements in the field or laboratory
and then quickly process the captured data wherever they want.
The pocket analyser's hardware features two channels of CCLD
conditioning to power accelerometers, microphones and impact
hammers as well as two additional channels of direct input for
tachometers or triggers. The analyser provides users with the
capability of directly relating noise and vibration to rotating
elements such as engines, motors and tyres. Contour and
waterfall displays can be used to show how noise and vibration
parameters vary with RPM variations.
The user-friendly software of the pocket analyser has been
developed to minimise an engineer's set up time and ensure
error-free sound and vibration measurements. Benefits of the
new software release include: Access to all the PULSE cursors
(main, reference, delta, harmonic, and sideband); more cursor
readings to go with the new cursors (delta, delta/total, reference,
corrected frequency, resonance); more triggers in FFT and CPB
(free-run, signal, and manual); the ability to specify windows in
FFT and Impact as well as add new transducers to the system's
