Irvine, CA June 17, 2009 VTI Instruments Corporation is pleased to announce a new software solution that enhances the acoustic acquisition capabilities of its precision NVH/DSA products. m+p international has released SO Analyzer Revision 3.3, the latest version of its real-time software tool for noise and vibration measurement, analysis and reporting in the field or in the lab.
The user-friendly SO Analyzer 3.3 features sound quality and sound playback modules. When combined with VTI's hardware, these modules can assist in the reduction of noise levels from sources including automobiles, household appliances, and commercial airplanes. Sound playback also provides engineers with additional indicators for milestones and changes during testing. The Sound Quality Module displays functions of loudness that can be viewed as 2D, 3D or spectrograms for further analysis.
For many years, VTI has provided world-class hardware solutions for the sound and vibration test industries that deliver the highest degree of data integrity, said Chris Gibson, VTI Business Development Manager. This latest release of SO Analyzer ensures that engineers working in noise reduction have a powerful set of software tools that facilitate data analysis, playback and display.
SO Analyzer supports the following VXIbus modules from VTI: VT1432B, VT1433, VT1434, VT1435 and VT1436. The software supports all native sample frequencies from 1024 Hz to 102.4 kHz, input modes including AC/DC floating or grounded, and a user-selectable ICP source on each channel. VTI's EX2500 LAN card or the IEEE-1394 Firewire board can function as the computer interface. SO Analyzer runs on Microsoft Windows NT, 2000, XP and Vista.
Additional features include standard deviation, skewness and kurtosis, which have been added to the value table functions. A new Project Catalog Utility is now available in the File menu to help organize and manage large data quantities. A new Group by Function option provides even greater flexibility in how saved data is organized at the end of the measurement run.
