Designed primarily for use in the aerospace and automotive industries, BK Connect Acoustic Camera is a versatile and complete hand-held system for real-time noise source identification in almost any acoustic environment.
It is capable of stationary and non‐stationary measurements over a wide range of frequencies using both beamforming and acoustic holography.
Equally suitable for noise source troubleshooting in aircraft cabins and cockpits, Buzz, Squeak and Rattle detection in vehicle cabins; and high-frequency leak detection, this portable system is up and running within 10 seconds of starting BK Connect Array Analysis, showing live maps on video.
Using an aim, shoot and measure procedure, the acoustic camera allows you to take, save and share screenshots using the functionality of your tablet; make, save and review video recordings of contour maps using BK Connect Array Analysis; and analyze recordings using BK Connect applications, according to your test requirements (available separately.)
BK Connect Acoustic Camera comprises software components BK Connect Array Analysis and BK Connect Data Viewer and BK Connect Hardware Setup (advanced). The hardware component includes a hand‐held array and LAN‐XI data acquisition hardware, which includes the frame, modules and front panels. The hardware is delivered in a waterproof case for easy transportation. The tablet is optional, and the PC and is not included.
The system also supports a range of other sliced-wheel arrays and all other planar, irregular arrays as well as a complete set of acoustic mapping and other sound and vibration tools available from Brüel & Kjær, including the patented Wideband Holography.
BK Connect Acoustic Camera works with BK Connect software enabling easy, real-time noise source location and mapping. View transient sound sources on-site, or record and save video for subsequent analysis on stationary and moving objects.
BK Connect Array Analysis enables real-time noise source location and mapping using a microphone array. Point-and-shoot measuring results and video recordings provide detailed analysis using beamforming and holography technology.
An easy-to-use, standalone tool for managing and viewing data and creating reports: the tasks where sound and vibration engineers typically spend a majority of their time. BK Connect® Data Viewer is part of the core framework of the BK Connect software platform.
A BK Connect core application for setting up measurement hardware: Real-world and virtual setups can be created and saved for later use.
Additional capabilities for our array acoustics noise source location and mapping software: Acoustic Beamforming Type 8608, Acoustic Holography Type 8607 and Spherical Beamforming Type 8606.
