Latest Hardware Technology Tackles Challenges in NVH Testing and Dynamic Data Acquisition
m+p international is well known as a worldwide provider of top-level test and measurement solutions. With nearly 40 years’ expertise and experience in vibration control, NVH testing, structural analysis, data acquisition and monitoring, and test stand engineering, the company understands customers’ applications from an engineer’s point of view.
The recently introduced m+p VibMobile measurement hardware was engineered for the requirements of mobile multi-channel noise and vibration measurements and dynamic signal analysis, as well as demanding data acquisition and monitoring applications. This versatile front-end offers a wide choice of analog I/O boards for high-speed data acquisition, simultaneous sampling, signal conditioning for voltage inputs, IEPE sensor supply and bridge measurements. Up to four CompactPCI Serial boards can be used additionally in the mainframe, allowing for the free selection of industry standard I/O, interface and storage solutions.
The new m+p VibMobile – with its compact form factor, robust design, embedded CPU and storage media, multi-range AC and DC power supply and optional battery power – is made for portable or standalone operation. With a broad selection of analog input and output boards and appropriate signal conditioning modules, it can be used in all kinds of dynamic and quasi-static measurement fields: noise and vibration, modal analysis, strain measurements, experimental stress analysis, engine testing, functional testing, process monitoring, etc.
The conditions under which measurements must be taken are sometimes tough. The m+p VibMobile’s robust steel housing qualifies the equipment for operation under harsh ambient conditions and for high temperatures. Lightweight polyurethane side panels provide extra protection.
The m+p VibMobile can be operated as a front-end via Ethernet and laptop or remote PC. Alternatively, all application programs run on the SSD of the embedded CPU; in this case, monitor, keyboard and mouse or a high-resolution digital display can be directly connected to the CPU.
For channel expansion and distributed measurements, multiple m+p VibMobile front-ends can be combined to act as one system. The daisy-chained master-slave configuration makes it possible to place the front-ends close to the measuring points, resulting in reduced transducer cabling and much higher measurement quality.
m+p international provides advanced software products and precision instrumentation from four to high channel counts for vibration testing on a shaker, noise and vibration analysis and dynamic data acquisition.
