National Instruments Expands Sound and Vibration Product Offerings for Machine Diagnostic Applications
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 quality considerations are becoming increasingly important in the design of products,” said
In addition, the 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.
The USB-4432 delivers 108 dB of dynamic range to properly capture high-frequency, low-amplitude vibrations in the presence of low-frequency, high-amplitude signals. The module consists of four analog input channels for reading from integral electronics (IEPE) sensors and a fifth channel for tachometer input. The five channels simultaneously acquire at rates up to 102.4 kS/s, extending the frequency bandwidth and performing higher-frequency readings than other NI USB solutions. In addition, the USB-4432 features configurable AC/DC coupling to allow for a variety of vibration sensors on each channel, making it ideal for a wide range of portable applications such as machine condition monitoring and NVH.
