Pumping up production

Mechanical system specialist, NTS has expanded its measurement capabilities with a new multi-channel analysis system.

Based at the company’s Eindhoven facility, the PULSE analysis software and LAN‐XI data acquisition hardware is utilised by the development department for a vast range of tests, including impact tests on transport packing, self-noise measurements in air bearings and modal analysis of machine frames.

With an increased demand in development projects, NTS approached Bruel & Kjaer’s exclusive Benelux distributor - ENMO Sound & Vibration Technology to discuss various options. ENMO recommended Brüel & Kjær’s PULSE system with LAN‐XI Data Acquisition Hardware input modules Types 3160 and 3053, as suitable kit for NTS’ multiple application tests requirements.

The two modules can be combined into one system with 16 channels or work as individual units. The PULSE fast Fourier transformation (FFT) analysis software has all the functionality required for signal and system analysis with constant bandwidth.
