Scout 422 | New data acquisition

 The “Scout 422” is a highly accurate 24bit resolution USB data acquisition. It is developed for noise and vibration measurements with  Microflown probe based solutions. The “Scout 422” has four inputs, one output, an amplified output, tacho input and a external trigger  channel. It also supports other sensors like microphones, accelerometers, IEPE sensors and tachometers. For some features of our solutions  these types of sensors can be required.

 In most common measurement applications the “Scout 422” makes use of the USB powering so no additional power cables are required. Only when the amplified output, which uses an internal integrated amplifier, is used the external powering is required. The amplified output can  be used to excite a sound source or small shaker.

The “Scout 422” is a modular data frontend. It is possible to link together up to 4 modules, for a total amount of 16 analog input channels.

Features

  • All Microflown sensors can be directly connected, from 1 to 4 channels, AC coupling.
  • Calibration setup
  • Microflown technologies software application packages such as: Sound Intensity, Impedance, Scan & Paint and Scan & Paint for airborne Transfer Path Analysis (TPA)
  • Sound source mapping with phase/angle reference (f.e. Rotating machinery testing)
  • External / remote triggered control
