Acoustic Imaging

Acoustic Imaging is probably the most advanced field within the whole of acoustics and finding the right products can be a bit of a minefield. At AcSoft we have the expertise to make sure you have the very best product for your application.
Home Products Acoustic Imaging

An acoustic camera is an imaging device that is used to both locate sound sources and to characterise them. It generally consists of a microphone array and an optical camera whose data is simultaneously acquired to give a representation of the location of the sound sources. The most popular method to obtain an acoustic image is to use beamforming whereby microphone signals are delayed relatively and added, with the signal coming from a specific direction being amplified while signals coming from other directions are cancelled.

Alternatively, particle velocity techniques can be used for localising sound sources on any type of object; from small hearing aids to large gas turbines. This technique provides you with high spatial resolution sound maps, over a broad frequency range and with an incredible dynamic range.

Automotive

Whether you work in NVH or are part of the drivetrain testing, chassis testing or transmission teams, AcSoft have ultimate solutions for noise, vibration, harshness and sound quality measurement.

Aerospace & Defence

All industry applications bring their own challenges, but aerospace and defence testing can be one of the harshest, pushing transducers and measurement systems to their limits.

R&D and Production

Centralising data collation and analysis across multiple production sites is also possible as expectation of remote access to acquisition systems becomes the norm
