Flexible, fast, intuitive and modular were the key words in mind for developing this array platform. The new flexible array platform is the next step in improvements on the measurement chain for array applications. 

FAST & EASY SETUP

Embedded electronics combined with smart designing make it possible to setup a configuration in a snap. Plug and play with only a few component to connect you’ll start with your core work almost instantly. The new platform will have a remote handle as base to apply all different type of array grids fast and easy. With just three connecting screws a variety of array grids can be fixed to remote handle. There is just one cable connect the remote handle and thus your array with the MFPA-24B preamplifier. In a matter of minutes you a ready-to-go with the array of PU probes optimized for your measurement application. Initially three standard array confirmation are in the catalogue, naturally we aim to extend this in the future.

STARTERS PACK (ARR-GR-SP)

The starters pack is the essential part where your arrays configuration starts. On top of your starts pack you can add the array grids for your application demands. The starters pack includes the following:

  • Array Remote Handle
  • CCD Camera + Lens and USB cable
  • Tripod
  • Pelicase with inlay

BIHEX (ARR-GR-BIHEX)

The BIHEX is a grid where its special design has more to offer than looks. The configuration is the outcome of comprehensive research and development for a configuration that is optimized for NAH (near-field acoustic holography) measurements. The grid is compatible with both PU mini and PU match probes, however it must be addressed that the optimized NAH configuration is developed for PU minis.  The maximum amount that could be used on this grid is 12.

RECT-7.5 (ARR-GR- RECT-7.5)

This grid feels familiar and can be seen as substitute for the hand-held array offered for years. The grid is compatible with both PU mini and PU match probes. The maximum amount that could be used on this grid is 12.

RECT-1.8 (ARR-GR- RECT-1.8)

When spatial resolutions matters especially on small object this grid is your solution! Similar to the grid above but with smaller spacing. Due this small sensor spacing this grid is only compatible with PU match probes. The maximum amount that could be used on this grid is 12.

All grid option come with a camera mount to support and position the ccd camera with lens correctly. 

 

 

The hand held array Starters Pack is the first constructing block of the setup. Over this base all the hande held compatible grids can be mounted and easily in terchanged to adapt the probes spacing and configuration to each situation.

The Hand held array pack includes:

>>> Microflown Technologies Remote Handle

The  handle allows remotelly controlling the measurement providing controls over the start / stop process of the recording as well as deletion of the last captures performed. The remote control provides also information during the measurement process, in terms of signal range adequacy and correct position on the applications to which this feature applies to.

The handle also contains connection to the routing cable to the sensor preamplifiers, a tripod fixture for correct manupulation and stability and three easily removable screws to fix the camera lengths adapted to each compatible grid type.

>>> CCD camera

The CCD camera is a cruzial part of the system. It provides the posibility of , not only registering the audio signals in front of the sensors but also the sensors location and movement during the measurement. 

>>> Protective case

The setup is packaged in a protective pelican case to easen and protect transportation

Other accesories required for the operation of the Hand Held array, not included in the Hand Held Array Starters Pack but on the array purchase:

>>> Microflown Technologies Preamplifier (MFPA-24B)

>>> MFPA-24B cable

The one click connection cable routes all 12 probes signals and power supplies from the  sensors to their preamplifier. This cable is compatible with the Hand Held pack and the MFPA-24-B type.

 

To this hand held pack, any Grid pack can be connected in order to position the sensors in the optimal position for the measured device and analysis method to be aplied over the captured data

 

There are different array options available suited for different measurement requirements.

Each grid pack consists of:

>>> Camera mounting

The camera mounting maintains the camera lens at the optimized distance to the grid surface and at the middle of the grid position in order to ensure the correct camera positioning and view

>>> Array Grid

Several array grids are offered in order to adapt the probe positioning for diffefrent measurement scenarios. The grid functions as a probe holder and a signal routing system. Each probe is maintained in a fixed position and orientation for analysis easiness. The acquired signals are routed to a signal patch in the bottom of the grid which allows the connection with the handle piece in their way to the sensors preamplifiers.
