XL2 Data Explorer Software Offers Advanced Noise Analysis
NTi Audio introduces an XL2 Data Explorer Software which offers advanced noise analysis and quick analyzes on large measurement datasheets.
“The XL2 is designed to simultaneously measure many data values and an audio track over long periods of time. This often results in large data files. For this purpose the data explorer software provides the professional solution for rapid visualization and detailed analysis of the measurement data. All data is plotted on an overview graph. You can quickly zoom to individual data points, and audio data is appropriately synchronized with the graphed data points for audible verification of the sound source,” according to the company.
The new software allows users to define and change audit intervals after measurements; the new software will automatically recalculate the new equivalent values. Scale colors can also be changed in the software.
“Standards often define that noise measurements be reported as the mean and the maximum sound level within defined time periods (audit intervals) e.g. 5, 10, 15, 30 or 60 minutes. Version 1.40 of the Data Explorer allows you to change the audit interval period after the measurement is completed and recalculate the broadband, third-octave and percentile levels for each interval. In addition, with the Data Explorer graphic interface you can highlight and report on equivalent values for individual sound events and periods,” the company added.
