The Tornado allows the installation of up to four Apollo PCI-Express measuring cards. Additional connectors for external GPS system synchronisation and 8x SLOW channels are available.

The Tornado measurement system features an extremely robust design at a moderate weight. The folding carrying handle at the top is suited for transport and installation of the instrument in the filed (e. g. in a vehicle).

The Tornado measurement system is especially well suited for:

  • Data acquisition and analysis
  • Customised multi-channel vibroacoustic measuring instruments
  • Sound power measurements
  • Noise and vibration monitoring
  • Machinery and equipment status monitoring
  • Acoustic camera
  • Quality assurance
  • Research and development

The Tornado measurement system is fully compatible with the type-approved Soundbook_MK2 measurement system.

The following specifications refer to the Tornado_16L measurement system. The measurement systems Tornado_16B, Tornado 32D and Tornado_32S are not equipped for the use with microphones with ±14V/200V microphone supply. ICP power supply for sensors is available with all Apollo measuring boards.
