Sound Intensity Application Overview
The Dewesoft Sound Intensity module offers a comprehensive measurement solution, enabling customers to use it for precise noise source localization or sound power calculations without requiring any specialized environments such as a reverberation room or an anechoic chamber.
Sound power measurement is a universally recognized method, particularly established for comparing devices based on their acoustic properties. With our fully-fledged and versatile solution, sound power measurements can be conducted regardless of the shape or size of the object of interest, with only a few requirements regarding the measurement space or location.
This approach allows sound power to be determined in various types of sound fields. Furthermore, this method facilitates the measurement of devices that necessitate specific and complex mounting for operation, making it otherwise impossible to determine their sound power using alternative methods. In-situ measurements have never been simpler or more potent. This solution is perfect for quick troubleshooting and compliance with factory measurements, and it excels in cases involving complex devices with residual noise where the primary concern is the sound power of a specific machine.
When it comes to noise source localization, no other solution is as user-friendly and intuitive as Dewesoft Sound Intensity. Depending on the direction of sound wave travel (from microphone A to B or vice versa), our plugin displays different values (positive or negative) as the noise source moves along the probe's axis. When the probe is perpendicular to the noise source (directly above it), the visual control within Dewesoft X3 DAQ software toggles between positive and negative values. This process is repeated for both the horizontal and vertical alignment of the probe axis, resulting in precise noise source localization.
