MEDA – The proper setup for each task

Just a few clicks to set the proper parameters
Just a few clicks to set the proper parameters

Different measurement tasks often require different measurement approaches. MEDA therefore features the following five measurements methods:

  •     Standard
  •     Tape
  •     Waterfall
  •     Balancing
  •     Sound power

These methods optimally meet the user‘s requirements. The menu guide helps the user to set the parameters for a measurement. The measurement can be started very quickly with just a few entries and clicks.

Standard

This measurement method covers the most important configuration options for standard measurements. These include, for example, the online spectrum averaging function (narrowband, third-octave and octave), controlled through the TTL trigger input or the set measurement time. This measurement method can also be used to measure transfer functions.

Tape

The most frequently used measurement method is the cyclic tape measurement, which provides a multitude of trigger and alarm functions. Using MEDA, you can trigger to the amplitude level or to individual thirdoctave or octave bands in the measurement signal. Any exceeded values are reported through SMS or e-mail. Optionally, a flashlight or an audible signal transmitter may trigger an alarm directly on site. The tape measurement method is also ideally suited for complex and long-lasting monitoring tasks (interval recording of significant parameters, such as maximum values, third-octave and octave maximum values).

Wasserfall

This measurement method can be used to directly measure waterfalls (e.g., machine run-ups) or to generate waterfalls and order curves from measured time signals in the post process.

Balancing

This measurement method can be used to directly measure waterfalls (e.g., machine run-ups) or to generate waterfalls and order curves from measured time signals in the post process.

Sound Power

This measurement method supports the calculation of the sound power based on the enveloping surface method as per EN ISO 3744.
