New Tech Program

Discover the benefits of a modular NVH approach for your application with DIRAC!

DIRAC is a crucial extension to your current way-of-working. DIRAC enhances the process and quality of FRF measurements while reducing overall time spent in the lab, preparing and post-processing. To discover what virtual point technology adds to your current R&D processes, we believe that hands-on experience is the best way to evaluate DIRAC. At the same time, we understand that finding the right time and (hardware) resources for evaluation can be a hurdle.
Therefore, we now offer introduction packages at a reduced price, for you to experience this modular NVH approach with DIRAC. With a compact and intensive measurement campaign, we will together create a test-based model of a component or vehicle of your choosing. We take care of organizing the right hardware during the measurements.

Key Program Benefits

  1. You obtain a ready-to-use high-quality dataset, compatible with your current analysis software including nodal FRFs with translational and rotational DoFs and multi-kHz validity!
  2. You experience the full potential of DIRAC for test-based modelling and you obtain a 90-days license period for evaluation of DIRAC!
  3. You will learn all ins & outs of this modular NVH approach: VIBES experts will work with you during the campaign and the programme includes a full-day expert training.
  4. We take care of the organization and preparation of hardware & software.

Classic FRF Measurement

DIRAC has the following benefits versus traditional FRF measurements:

  • Clear definition of measurement instructions using 3D preparation
  • Less measurement time than with your current software
  • Traceability of what is measured (3D prepare and adding notes/photos)
  • Higher accuracy in the multi-kHz range (due to quality checks and optimizations on-the-fly)
  • Full compatibility with other software packages using industry standards (ATFX, MATLAB)
  • Rich export formats meta data and definitions of sensor & impact positions, angles and directions

Virtual Point Modelling & Quality

Additionally, we demonstrate the technological advantages, to prepare you for the next-generation of modular sound & vibration engineering:

  • Acquiring rotational Degrees of Freedom required for substructuring and Blocked Forces
  • Acquiring nodal FRFs compatible with CAE models needed for hybrid simulations
  • Additional layers of quality indicators that evaluate the dataset per measurement point, per virtual point and per component as a whole

New Technology Training

Besides the dataset of the tested component a full-day New Technology Training is included, highlighting the basics of virtual point modelling and an outlook into new technologies such as Blocked Force source characterisation and Dynamic Substructuring.

Special offers

Offer details are in the tabs below. Optionally, we can arrange a Müller-BBM PAK MK2-gen2 measurement system equipped with 48 ICP channels and 12 accelerometers for the time of measurement, at a small additional price. This allows you to experience the full potential DIRAC also if you do not have the best hardware match available.

The New Tech Program offers are available until 1 July 2019, so make sure to get in-touch soon!
