The imc WAVE Starterkit

An inexpensive introduction to noise and vibration analysis

For technicians and engineers, the imc WAVE starter packages offer an inexpensive and user-friendly introduction to noise and vibration analysis. Users can thus use the numerous ready-to-use functions contained in imc WAVE for the evaluation of sound levels and sound power levels as well as for vibration analysis on machines and thus take their first steps into the world of NVH analysis.

At a glance

  • Includes imc WAVE as analysis platform for noise and vibration data acquisition and analysis.
  • Allows a simple NVH measurement with up to two microphones or vibration sensors with USB IEPE measuring amplifier.
  • The included imc WAVE analyzers are based on standard test routines.
  • Expandable with a multi-channel imc measuring system. Here, acoustic signals can be evaluated and assessed in the context of further measurement quantities with imc WAVE. This helps to answer the question: What is the influence between the acoustic signals and other measurement quantities such as forces, pressures, strains, temperatures or field bus channels?

Holistic testing approach: more than NVH

In the development arena, acquisition and correlation of additional measurement values are often required in order to analyze root causes and dependencies between the acoustic parameters and operational states. With imc WAVE, temperature, strain or GPS can be recorded and signals and information from CAN vehicle buses are directly integrated. This follows a holistic testing approach, because after all, vehicles and machinery are increasingly being tested in their entirety. Analyses are carried out in real time: all recorded signals are directly calculated to meaningful result values and are evaluated according to relevant standards.

imc WAVE can also be extended with the imc FAMOS software, so that users can perform their own analyses, evaluations and reports.
