Designed without a display or keyboard, the remote spectrum monitor automates the method of conducting radio surveillance, interference detection, and government spectrum policy enforcement while bringing greater flexibilities and cost efficiencies to network management. The bundled solution is flexible and expandable to evolve along with networks, it features two spectrum monitor modules at introduction, each with power of arrival (POA) algorithms to monitor for interference and approximate the position where the interfering signal is being generated. Designed to maximize network capacity by more efficiently solving issues associated with the presence of illegal or unlicensed signals that interfere with authorized transmissions, the MS27102A can be wall- or pole-mounted. Anritsu www.anritsu.com Sound and vibration measurement system takes up to 256 channels For acoustic, audio, and vibration testing on large structures such as airplane wings, turbines and trucks, Data Translation now offers the possibility to combine up to four VIBboxes to a complete system providing 256 channels for IEPE/ICP sensors or voltages. As every input has its own 24-bit A/D converter, the signals from sensors such as measurement microphones or accelerometers can be acquired simultaneously, synchronously and continuously at high sampling rates of up 51.2 kHz without time lapse or phase difference. In addition to the 256 analog inputs, the measurement system also provides 16 tachometer inputs, as well as a wide range of counter/timers and digital I/O channels. The current source for the IEPE/ICP sensors is individually programmable for each analog input in a supported range of ±10V or ±1V. 32 analog outputs with ultra-high 32-bit resolution can be used as signal source for any waveform stimulus. Data Translation GmbH www.datatranslation.eu Board X-ray inspection boost with 3D algorithm Goepel electronics claims its inline AXI system now offers an even faster high-end 3D inspection of complex assemblies thanks to the “X40 PLUS” upgrade, achieving an X-ray inspection speed increase of up to 18 percent versus the tool’s prior capabilities. Optimization the imaging chain in combination with an improved axle system and faster execution of the test algorithms results in significant savings of cycle time depending on the maximum resolution and the board dimensions, says the company. As an example, a 216x164mm assembly with more than 8000 solder joints requires only about 40 seconds for complete 3D X-ray inspection. The X-Line 3D enables the safe inspection of double-sided boards. The three-dimensional X-ray inspection captures both top and bottom sides within a single pass. Based on a real time multi-angle image, recording a complete 3D inspection of the assembly is possible. Integrated reconstruction methods based on digital thomosynthesis enables the defined evaluation of individual layers of the circuit board under test. All the company’s existing X40 Systems of the Series 200 can benefit from the upgrade.
