HEADlab – Modular 24-bit multi-channel data acquisition system for sound and vibration measurement

HEADlab is a modularly structured data acquisition system for multi-channel sound and... 

HEADlab is a modularly structured data acquisition system for multi-channel sound and vibration measurement, consisting of one or several controllers with various input, playback and power supply modules.

HEADlab systems are easy to configure: Users choose which modules to combine with a controller.

The  modules used for diverse sensor types depending on the individual application are robust, silent and flexible to combine and use. An integrated locking mechanism allows the modules to be combined in robust units and to be easily disconnected again.

The heart of any HEADlab system is the powerful controller. It concentrates and synchronizes data, supplies power to connected modules and establishes the connection to the PC. Connecting several controllers increases the performance capability of systems up to several hundred channels. Further accessories (holding and mounting plates, handles, magnets) allow HEADlab systems to be transported conveniently and securely and to be mounted almost anywhere.

  • Mobile: The integrated battery allows for recordings at measurement locations without a direct power supply.
  • Flexible: The multi-channel system, comprising the controller and input and power supply modules, can be individually assembled.
  • Silent: HEADlab operates without fans, minimizing background noise.
  • Modular: One controller supplies up to 10 modules. Several such HEADlab systems can be connected to form larger, synchronized systems with several hundred channels.
  • Versatile: Different input modules with connection options for binaural sensors, microphones (ICP®/condenser microphones), speed, pressure, temperature, charge sensors, measuring bridges (strain gages), CAN FD/CAN, OBD-II and FlexRay sources, GPS receivers and highly resistive voltage sources
  • Individual modules can be replaced in a very simple procedure.
  • Power-saving operation of control and input modules.
  • Systems are light yet robust.
  • Modules, PC and power supply are electrically isolated.
