Siemens PLM Software has launched its new LMS SCADAS XS, a portable noise and vibration data acquisition system. The LMS SCADAS XS is specifically designed for easy in-vehicle or in-field measurements, the company says.
The LMS SCADAS XS enables expert and non-expert users, engineers, and technicians to perform tests throughout the product lifecycle, from early design up through in-field troubleshooting.
Measuring no more than 170 mm in height, 114 mm in width, and 23 mm in depth, the LMS SCADAS XS fits in a person’s hand. It records and conditions noise and vibration signals acquired from a variety of sensors and can be used as a standalone recorder, with a tablet over Wi-Fi, or connected directly to a PC through USB.
The device is available in a standard six-channel version and an advanced twelve-channel version. In addition to these basic analog input channels (for V/ICP, including TEDS to support typical sensors such as microphones and accelerometers), the LMS SCADAS XS also supports a headset for binaural recording and stereo audio replay, a digital artificial head through dual SPDIF inputs, two analog tacho signals for RPM measurements, vehicle CAN bus signals, and GPS.
An included tablet application allows engineers to prepare test setups and monitor and validate test data. The LMS Smart Scope application allows for easy data validation, including audio replay, through a Wi-Fi connection.
