Controllers and Digital Input

labCTRL I.2: LAN/USB controller for data concentration and synchronization of HEADlab systems

The labCTRL I.2 controller is the central connection unit in a HEADlab system. Its functions include data concentration and synchronization of up to 10 input and playback modules and is connected to the PC via USB or LAN. labCTRL I.2 offers a CAN or OBD-II interface, two pulse inputs and the option to directly connect an artificial head.

HEADlab Module labDX

labDX: Digital input module with CAN FD, FlexRay, HMS and pulse interfaces

labDX is a digital module with the following inputs: 2x CAN FD (labDX from version B) /CAN/OBD-II, 1 x FlexRay, 2x pulse inputs and an interface for a HMS III- or HMS IV-generation artificial head or for connecting a GPS receiver. The configurable pulse inputs facilitate a high maximum pulse rate.

HEADlab Module labHRT6

labHRT6: Digital input module for high-resolution measurement of speeds

labHRT6 is a 6-channel digital input module for the high-resolution measurement of speeds or other pulses for rotation and torsional vibration analyses. The variable configuration of the six measuring inputs facilitates recording of a wide range of signal sources. Several input channels can be bundled, allowing use for a sampling rate of up to 6.9 MHz.

HEADlab Module labHMS

labHMS: HMS input module for three HMS-III- or HMS-IV-generation artificial heads

labHMS is a 6-channel input module for connecting up to three HMS-III or HMS-IV artificial heads or a GPS receiver. In conjunction with controller labCTRL I.2, using four artificial heads is possible, e.g. for wind tunnel applications.


Analog Modules

labM6: 6-channel microphone/ICP® input module

labM6 is a 6-channel module for connecting condenser microphones with impedance converter (±60 V) and connectible polarization voltage of 200 V. Binaural headset BHS II (recording) or ICP® sensors are connected via adapters.

Version labM6-V1 offers a reduced voltage supply to the impedance converter in order to connect low-noise microphones, for example. It can be calibrated as a class-1 sound pressure level measuring device (in line with IEC 61672).

labV6 & labVF6: 6-channel line/ICP® input modules (labVF6 with low-pass filter)

labV6 is a 6-channel line-/ ICP® module. labVF6 features an additional low-pass filter. Both modules demonstrate high phase accuracy of 24-bit data and a signal-to-noise ratio of 108 dB(A). For connecting high-impedance sensors, the adapter SCU-V2 is available.

labV12: 12-channel line/ICP® input module

labV12 is a 12-channel line-/ ICP® module with a high-pass filter switchable per channel. It offers high phase accuracy of 24-bit data and a signal-to-noise ratio of 107 dB(A). The sampling rate available is doubled through dual-link connection to the controller. Versions labV12-V1 and labV12-V2 have higher input impedances and lower AC cut-off frequencies. For connecting high-impedance sensors, the adapter SCU-V2 is available.

HEADlab Module SCU I6

SCU I6: 6-channel adapter to perform current measurements with HEADlab modules and compact systems

SCU I6 is connected to the signal inputs of a HEADlab module, e.g. labV6HD, and can be used for converting measured currents (DC or AC) into corresponding voltages.

labV6HD: 6-channel line/ICP® input module with wide-range input (high dynamics)

labV6HD is a 6-channel line-/ ICP® module allowing all channels to be used either as a high-dynamic wide-range input or, as per convention, with fixed measuring ranges from 10 mV to 30 V. labV6HD features 168 dB dynamics and “0 Hz ICP-DC coupling”, facilitating ICP® measurements from 0 Hz to 45 kHz. This allows low-frequency signals to be measured. The module can be calibrated as a class 1 sound pressure level measuring device (in line with IEC 61672).

labSG6: 6-channel input module for connecting resistive measuring bridges (strain gages) and more

labSG6 is a 6-channel input module for connecting both resistive measuring bridges (strain gages) and sensors with symmetrical or unsymmetrical outputs and unipolar or bipolar supply. An auto-zero function is available for automatic bridge balancing. The voltage supply is programmable by channel.

labCF6: 6-channel charge/ICP® input module with integrated charging amplifiers

labCF6 is suitable for connecting charge and ICP® sensors, with each channel individually usable in charge or ICP® mode. In charge mode, labCF6 features charge amplifiers for charge sensors. The sampling rate is up to 96 kHz (3 channels).

HEADlab Module labT6

labT6: 6-channel input module for connecting thermal elements of type K or RTD (PT100, PT1000)

labT6 is a 6-channel input module for connecting up to six thermal elements of types K and RTD (PT100 and PT1000). Each channel features a characteristic curve correction including cold-junction compensation (CJC). The device offers automatic thermal element breakage/cable breakage detection.

HEADlab Module labO2

labO2 – 2-channel playback equalizer with line outputs

labO2 is a 2-channel playback equalizer with line outputs (equalizer: FF, ID, DF, USER). It allows aurally accurate playback of binaural recordings when using the loaded filters to incorporate the human auditory impression in the assessment of sounds.

labHSU data acquisition module

labHSU – High-end dual-channel data acquisition module

labHSU is an extraordinarily flexible dual-channel data acquisition system. It can be operated as a frontend on a computer, as a module in a HEADlab system or as a stand-alone system by remote control via smartphone, tablet or the RC X remote control. labHSU offers connection facilities for artificial head measurement systems and other binaural measurement systems from HEAD acoustics as well as for condenser microphones and ICP® sensors.


Power Supply

labPWR I.1: HEADlab Power-Box for supplying power to individual modules or smaller systems up to 40 W

labPWRI.1 is a power box for supplying power to individual modules or smaller HEADlab systems up to 40 W. The battery (55 Wh) supplies connected HEADlab systems, depending on configuration, for several hours even without a power source. Uninterrupted switching between external power supply and battery operation is facilitated.

HEADlab Module labPWR I.2

labPWR I.2: HEADlab Power-Box for supplying power to larger systems up to 100 W

The labPWR I.2 power box is used to ensure an uninterrupted power supply to HEADlab systems where the total consumption of connected modules does not exceed 100 W. Uninterrupted switching between external power supply and battery operation is facilitated.

HEADlab Module labPWR I.3

labPWR I.3: HEADlab Power-Box for supplying labHSU, HEADlab systems up to 35 W and SQuadriga III

labPWR I.3 power box provides an uninterruptible power supply for labHSU, HEADlab systems (up to 35 W) or SQuadriga III. The integrated battery supplies HEADlab systems for several hours, even without external power supply. labPWR I.3 allows for remote power up of pre-configured measurement systems or timer controlled power on and off (with labHSU).
