Larson Davis Announces Pimento 5.1 Release

July 13, 2004, Provo, UT -The 5.1 release of the popular Pimento analyzer includes a new 4-channel version with a price tag sure to please those needing to step up to a multi-channel analyzer on a limited budget. An upgrade path to as many as 24 channels insures you won't soon outgrow your investment.

Also featured is a new concept in pre-configured test procedure management, Acquire/Analyze/Report in 3 clicks! Procedures presently available include:
o Basic Octave and FFT Analyzer
o Vehicle Ride Comfort: ISO2631, BS6841
o Power Tool Handle Vibrations: ISO8662
o Hand Transmitted Vibrations: ISO5349
o Vehicle Interior Noise
o Reverberation Time
o Sound Transmission Loss: ISO140
o Room Noise: NC and RC Methods

Structural dynamic engineers will appreciate the exclusive LMS PolyMAX algorithm now available in this update of the powerful Pimento Modal Analysis software. This method gives much better and clearer estimates for resonances than other commonly used techniques, thus minimizing the risk of making errors during the pole selection process.

Acoustics engineers can benefit from the expanded capabilities of the Pimento Sound Power and Sound Intensity software.
