Soundbook MK2

Soundbook_MK2 is the second generation of Sinus’ universal measurement system for sound and vibration measurements as well as general engineering measurements. It is based on the innovative Apollo platform. The high-performance 24-bit ADCs and the advanced Apollo filter processor combine highest precision, a large number of channels and a high signal bandwidth in one device. Of course, the robust Panasonic Toughbook CF-19 serves as base equipment for the Soundbook_MK2 again.

The universal multi-channel acoustic and vibration measuring system has the PTB type approval 21.21 / 13.05 and is therefore the only PC-based analyzer that can be verified.

Soundbook allows you to work virtually everywhere, at the office as well as on the go. Soundbook reliably withstands heat, cold, rain, dust, vibration and hard impacts. With a weight of 3 kilograms, a robust magnesium case, a rotatable, bright TFT display, low power consumption and various interfaces Soundbook combines the performance of a high-quality instrument with the capabilities of a PC. You may choose from variants with 2 / 4 or 8 measuring channels with LEMO7 or BNC input connectors to match you application requirements.

Soundbook is especially suited for:

  • Occupational safety and environmental protection
  • Engineering services
  • Quality assurance
  • Research and development
  • Sound level measurements
  • Frequency analysis
  • Signal recording
  • Human vibration measurements
  • Pass-by noise measurements
  • Building acoustics
  • Machinery vibration measurements
  • Modal analysis
  • Order analysis
  • Structural analysis
