ZoundLab – Vibra acoustic sound measurement testing system

Vibra acoustic sound measurement testing system, which acquires, analyses and evaluate vibration and sound signals and is therefore ideal for monitoring machine processes.

ZoundLab testing system
On this basis of different hardware platforms, flexible and expandable system solutions with 4 to 14 measuring channels can be built. A very comprehensive stock of analytical data and flexible configuration and evaluation options make the system flexible to adapt machines and processes as needed. The flexibility of ZoundLab and the clear layout of the user surface provide the user with all possibilities of ZoundLab, or provides him with a testing system that (nearly) works without operator attendance for objective test against freely definable limits, reference measurements and statistical variables.

Test criteria

Limit curve
Values above or below a freely defined time and frequency range (e.g. level characteristics or reference spectra) definition ot the limit value curve on the basis of a node table or adoption and processing an available reference measurement.

Statistical values
Calculation of statistical values from free definable, indepent time and frequency ranges. The following are available: Mean,minimum value, maximum value, dynamics (max-min), superelevation (max-mean,Crest (MAX/mean)
Level statistics: Freely definable percentile level by selectable signal sections.

Time signal recording, off-line analysis and WAVE audio converter

  • Recording:  ARecording of time signal data simultaneous with the analytical process
  • Offline-Analysis: Offline-analysis of recorded time data with changed definition of analytical and limit values
  • Wave-export: conversion of individual files or complete directories, automatic splitting of multiple-channel files into single-channel (mono or dual channel (stereo) audio-files
  • Resampling: Resampling on selectable standard audio sampling rates of 11025 S/s, 22050 S/s or 44100S/s
