Powertrain data acquisition and analysis – Internal Combustion


Half-day course
1:00 PM to 4:30 PM


Target group:

This seminar is aimed at IC powertrain acoustic and sound quality engineers working in design, development and remediation involving the characteristic sounds, reference signals and interactions found in internal combustion powertrains: engines, transmissions and final drives.


Basic knowledge about data acquisition is an advantage. The half-day training course Introduction to ArtemiS SUITE Recorder is available on this topic.

Seminar Objectives:

This half-day course brings together in a single application-oriented class for IC powertrain engineers all of the tools and techniques for rotating machinery data management, tachometer handling and display, plus analysis, filtering and gating capabilities and techniques.

The course is focused on the characteristics of internal combustion driven powertrains and hybrid IC/electric powertrains. It does not treat pure electric powertrains; please see the half-day course Powertrain Data Acquisition and Analysis, Electric.


  • How ArtemiS SUITE evaluates pulses and AC tachometers
  • Displaying RPM or reference quantity histories, displaying pulses, displaying dials
  • Conventional, psychoacoustic and advanced analyses vs. reference quantities (5013, 5016)
  • Order-related analyses and filtering (including order-tracking and grouping)
  • Variable filtering, rebalancing/adding/subtracting orders: legacy methods and Sound Engineering Project 5019
  • Producing calculated composite tachometers
  • Analyzing vs. different reference quantities separately or simultaneously
  • RPM Signal Generator (5021) and RPM Generator (5024)
  • Resampling to the angle domain
  • Interactive balancing of order tonalities, order roughness and other vehicular sounds (Sound Engineering Project) (5019)


Training material is provided in print and as pdf on a USB stick. Notebooks and front ends are available for all participants.

The number of participants is limited to a maximum of 10. In this way, we guarantee each participant an individual support.

Please Note

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the maximum number of attendees is limited to 5 persons only (10 persons in the US).
