Audio/Visual Planar Array
Featuring the same powerful 64 microphone architecture as the Audio/Visual Camera, our Planar Array allows users to focus the Array on a specific area of interest. The form-factor and design of the Array optimizes data collection and resolution for one-look direction recordings. Adding to the functionality of the Planar Array is our brand new, redesigned Acoustic Analysis software. The new software improves upon existing functionality and adds many new features, enhancing ease-of-use and control over data collection and analysis. Offered with the Acoustic Analysis software is the ‘Order Analysis Module,’ which allows operators to correlate time-dependent rotational information with position and frequency. Order analysis greatly expands the capabilities of operators to analyze sounds emitting from rotating machinery.
About Our Planar Array
The Audio/Visual Planar Array is a 64 element spiral patterned microphone array with HD video recording capabilities and the necessary hardware to attach directly to the included laptop via a single USB 3.0 connection. All of this technology is contained within a lightweight and ergonomic housing, complete with an integrated stand and handle.

Order Analysis Capabilities
VisiSonics has implemented a visualization module for the direct acoustic imaging of specific harmonic orders generated in rotating assemblies. The software provides several useful features that allow users to gain insight into the origin of the observed noise. To explore this harmonic structure, order tracking performs a change of variables from time and frequency, as in a standard spectrogram, to the space of RPM vs harmonic order. The input is exposed on a single BNC connector placed in the handle of the array.
