The NI Sound and Vibration Toolkit extends NI LabVIEW graphical development with functions and indicators for handling audio measurements, fractional-octave analysis, swept-sine analysis, sound level measurements, frequency analysis, frequency response measurements, transient analysis, and several sound and vibration displays. It also includes the new NI Sound and Vibration Assistant stand-alone, interactive software for quickly acquiring, analyzing, and logging acoustic, noise, and vibration data. With a configuration-based, flexible measurement library and open-analysis capability, the Sound and Vibration Assistant is designed for quick data capture through a unique software-based measurement approach to create customized applications.
The Sound and Vibration Assistant offers the ability to continually interact with live data, so you can vary analysis settings on the fly while logging data to disk for more analysis later. For example, you can vary the weighting and bandwidth of an octave spectrum while recording sound level data or adjust the window applied to a power spectrum while trending overall vibration readings. With Universal File Format (UFF58) file I/O support, you can acquire data from 24-bit NI dynamic signal acquisition (DSA) devices, including USB DSAs, and then share it easily between other commonly used sound and vibration analysis applications including modal analysis software.
The latest version of the toolkit features LabVIEW Express VIs for AES17 audio filtering. In addition, it includes power spectra, frequency response, ANSI and IEC fractional-octave analysis, and distortion measurement configuration-based Express VIs. You can quickly and efficiently begin applications with more than 50 ready-to-run LabVIEW example code bases provided in the Sound and Vibration Toolkit.
