The m+p international team is proud to announce the release of m+p VibControl 2.15 software. The new version provides numerous features which further improve the usability and expand the range of options.
The standard selfcheck is done with a fixed output level, which is a very efficient way of determining the structural responses. If you want to reduce this output level in specific areas, this can only be done by a manual definition of a selfcheck reference spectrum. The new limiter mode, however, automatically reduces the output level at critical points of the spectrum, which are mostly distinct resonances with low damping. The aim is finishing the selfcheck with a good signal-to-noise ratio and determining all required parameters while the specimen experiences only low to middle load.
The mixed mode test mode displays the drive signal with sine tones included, so that voltage peaks are recognized immediately and the test spectrum can be set to a lower level, if necessary. For multi-sine, sine-on-random and sine-on-random-on-random testing.
For test modes allowing several control channels, the new software revision provides a weighting option. This is especially helpful to control difficult test situations. For the average signal it is possible to give more weight to single signals so that they are included several times into the averaging process while others are only included once.
The VibRunner Options offer two new functions: Print screenshot at test end and Store screenshot at test end. For convenient reporting the whole VibRunner window with all charts is printed on the default printer or saved to the project’s result folder using the predefined file format.
m+p VibControl Rev. 2.15 features a Vector add function for the test modes classical shock and road load simulation. It sums the time signals of the measurement channels while taking into account their direction. Vector add has already been available for sine and random test modes.
In VibPosttest it is now possible to overlay the result graphs of all three channels of a triax accelerometer in one chart.
For an enhanced quality of your VibPosttest printouts, m+p VibControl Rev. 2.15 offers the possibility to adjust the line width of measurement traces.
m+p VibControl Rev. 2.15 supports 64-bit Windows operating systems and has been adapted to it. Thus, the software works much faster as it can make better use of the PC memory.
There are many other smaller improvements which will provide you with greater ease of use in daily operation.
