Data Translation Announces VIBpoint Framework V3.0 Complete Vibration Testing Solution

Output Stimuli with Waveform Generation: Sine, Swept Sine, Random Noise

NEWS RELEASE ─ August 14, 2012 ─ Data Translation, Inc. today announced the release of the VIBpoint Framework V3.0. The new version of the software provides tools to output stimuli with waveform generation. The VIBpoint Framework application, combined with DT dynamic signal acquisition (DAQ) devices, provides a complete vibration testing solution. The software is navigated through a series of easy-to-use configuration windows, allowing flexible selection of the desired acquisition, processing, plotting and display parameters.

New Waveform Output Features:

 Provides continuous or burst DAC output of noise, swept sine and fixed frequency waveforms
 Synchronize output start/stop with analog input, or start/stop manually
 Specify waveform on/off time and ramp up/ramp down time
 Lock total waveform duration to analysis frame time (triggered), or total acquisition time (free run)
 Specify waveform peak voltage and offset
 Fixed Frequency options
o Output frequency value
o Sine, square, ramp or triangle wave
o Continuous, burst, or repeat burst output
 Swept Sine options
o Start/end output frequency values
o Single sweep or loop
o Linear or Log frequency change
 Noise options
o Random, Random Normal, or Pink noise
o Continuous, burst, or repeat burst output
o True random or Pseudo random noise

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
