Brüel & Kjær launch world’s smallest 12-channel data analysis system

Performing multi-channel noise and vibration testing is now much easier - and cost effective - with Brüel & Kjær’s unique 12-channel data analyser: LAN-XI Module Type 3053-B-120.

Type 3053-B-120 is the only data analyser currently available which offers this number of channels in such a small package; each module measures just 132.6 x 27.5 x 250mm (5.22 x 1.08 x 9.84 inches).

The 3053-B-120’s frequency range from DC to 25.6 kilohertz (kHz) makes it ideal for a wide range of acoustic and vibration measurements, including structural measurements on large structures such as wind turbines. The high frequency bandwidth also makes it suitable for sound power measurements such as those made to International Standards ISO 3741 to ISO 3743 (comparison method) and ISO 3744 to ISO 3746.

As part of Brüel & Kjær's LAN-XI measurement hardware family, Type 3053-B-120 is almost infinitely expandable with other LAN-XI input, input/output modules and mounting frames. It’s also a key building block for high-density, high-channel count systems, such as those for array acoustics and noise source identification.

When used in an array system, the module’s detachable connector panel allows it to be fitted into a LAN-XI frame, with a multi-pin connector, to reduce the number of cables. The same modules can also be removed from the frame and fitted with the standard 12 SMB connector panel to create individual, 12-channel systems to maximize the flexibility of the system. This allows the same measurement hardware to fulfil multiple testing roles: a high-channel system, a small portable field recorder or front-end.

As part of the LAN-XI family, the Type 3053-B-120 can be upgraded to a stand-alone recorder to make high-quality data recording supremely simple in situations where a normal PC could not survive, such in-flight, in-vehicle testing or other harsh or restricted environments.
