SoundbookT, our universal portable measuring system for acoustic, vibration and engineering measurements in general, is now available in its 2nd generation on the basis of the innovative ApolloT platform. The powerful 24-bit A/D converters in combination with the innovative Apollo filter processors provide many channels with high precision and bandwidth. Naturally, Soundbook_MK2 also uses the robust Panasonic Toughbook CF-19 as its basis. The Soundbook allows you to work practically everywhere - in the office as well as outdoors. Neither heat, cold, rain, dust nor heavy mechanical shocks have an impact on the device. Having a weight of only 3 kilograms, a robust magnesium alloy exterior, a convertible bright TFT display, a moderate power consumption and many interfaces, the Soundbook unites the performance of a high-quality measuring device with the possibilities of a PC. According to your demands you may choose from variants with 2, 4 or 8 measuring channels and with LEMO7 or BNC input connectors. The Soundbook is particularly suitable for:
  • Industrial safety and environmental protection
  • Engineering services
  • Quality assurance
  • Research and development
