USA - Audio Precision has announced the APx517B acoustic analyser, specifically designed, configured and built for the production-line testing of speakers, microphones, headphones, headsets and the wide range of consumer electronics incorporating speakers and microphones.
With the introduction of the APx517B acoustic analyser, manufacturers can deploy an integrated acoustic test system that brings the renowned quality, reliability and robustness of Audio Precision’s lab-oriented analysers to their production lines, says the company.
On a production line, any time spent setting up a new test system, calibrating a system for a new shift, or reconfiguring a system for a change in DUT (device under test), is effectively a ‘line down’ situation. As an integrated system combining audio analyser (signal generation and acquisition), power amplifier, headphone amplifier, and microphone power supply, along with any required digital interface such as Bluetooth, the APx517B has the power to drastically reduce setup and reconfiguration time by eliminating multiple individual components (from a variety of vendors) and their associated cabling. Additionally, and unlike those individual components, the APx517B is delivered with an accredited ISO/IEC 17025 calibration.
"Production, or manufacturing, test is an application with its own unique challenges that, simply put, are time, reliability and cost," stated Daniel Knighten, Audio Precision general manager. "The APx517B acoustic analyser, is purpose-built to address those challenges - drastically reducing setup and reconfiguration time, delivering AP quality and reliability, configured and priced specifically for the manufacturing line - and thus redefine acoustic production test."
The APx517B acoustic analyzer is available now. APx500 software release 6.0.1 is also available for download by APx B Series or Legacy analyser users with a valid 6.0 license and is compatible with all analysers in the APx500 Series.
