LMS International has released the latest version of LMS Test.Lab, its integrated solution for noise and vibration testing and engineering. LMS Test.Lab Rev 10A
introduces new applications, such as Time Domain Transfer Path Analysis (TPA) and MIMO FRF testing, and acoustic testing.
“LMS Test.Lab is the solution that testing departments count on to increase test productivity while maintaining the utmost product quality,” says Bruno Massa, vice president, Test Division at LMS International. “With Rev 10 of LMS Test.Lab, we continued to improve on efficiency and ease-of-use. With the integration of new acoustic testing capabilities and transfer path analysis techniques, test engineers can more efficiently trace where a sound is coming from and what the root cause is of particular noise and vibration issues.”
The new LMS Test.Lab Time Domain TPA application complements frequency domain TPA for the analysis of transient phenomena. The new LMS Test.Lab MIMO FRF Testing extends the modal testing techniques in LMS Test.Lab. It allows users to 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 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 an overview of all measured and processed data, quality indicators, and related components.
The LMS Test.Lab Rev 10A High Definition Acoustic Camera supports both real-time far field and real-time near field sound source localization. For interior sound source localization, 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 3D, photorealistic image of the vehicle.
LMS test.Lab Rev 10 also takes advantage of the new E-series signal conditioning input modules of the LMS SCADAS. The E-modules provide a hardware-based solution to ensure faster test set-up and accurate measurements without data loss, according to the company.
