LMS Test.Lab Rev 10

LMS has released the latest version of LMS Test.Lab, its integrated solution for noise and vibration testing and engineering. v10 offers significant improvements in productivity, efficiency and user-friendliness, as well as new applications, such as Time Domain Transfer Path Analysis (TPA) and MIMO FRF testing. Rev 10A also integrates innovative solutions for acoustic testing.

LMS Test.Lab Rev 10A delivers a new extension to the LMS Test.Lab Transfer Path Analysis capabilities: LMS Test.Lab Time Domain TPA. This new application complements frequency domain TPA and is the perfect solution for the analysis of transient phenomena. With this extension, LMS now offers a complete portfolio of TPA solutions for a broad spectrum of applications. The new LMS Test.Lab MIMO FRF Testing extends the modal testing techniques in LMS Test.Lab. With this new solution, users can specify their specific excitation signals, define a shaped amplitude spectrum and extend the application to multi-sine excitation.

LMS Test.Lab Rev 10A integrates new acoustic testing capabilities and scalable solutions for spot-on sound testing and analysis. The LMS Test.Lab Rev 10A Sound Quality solution has been extended with new psycho-acoustic metrics used in the automotive, aerospace, and white goods sectors. The LMS Test.Lab Sound Intensity's geometry module has been extended with a 3D acoustic mesh generator. The new intensity data sheet presents a clear overview of all measured and processed data, quality indicators and related components. User can easily analyse, browse and interpret data for sound power, source ranking and sound source localisation.

The LMS Test.Lab Rev 10A High Definition Acoustic Camera supports both real-time far field and real-time near field sound source localisation. The camera's array with wide angle lens provides sharp pictures even when taken close to the structure. For interior sound source localisation with maximum accuracy, the new LMS Test. Lab 3D Acoustic Camera has a laser that automatically scans the geometry without operator intervention. During the scanning, pictures are taken to obtain a full 3D photorealistic image of the vehicle. With this solution, users can spot sources of interior noise problems with high precision and in record time.

Finally, LMS test.Lab Rev 10 takes optimal advantage of the new E-series signal conditioning input modules of the LMS SCADAS, which offer enhanced usability and increased efficiency. The E-modules provide a hardware-based solution to ensure faster test set-up and accurate measurements without data loss, even for demanding applications with high-channel count.
