SINUS Handheld Acoustic Camera Model AC100


Compact | Mobile | Robust | Low Cost 

Due to its state-of-the-art microphones using MEMS technology with integrated AD converters and 51.2 kHz sampling rate, together with an integrated measurement data processing electronics in the latest DSP technology, the AC100 is an affordable acoustic camera for a wide range of users and applications. The complete integration in the array, with only one USB interface for data and power supply, allows for convenient mobile use with any Windows PC.

The AC100 is a compact and very easy-to-use acoustic camera for standalone applications. Because of its high performance, simple operation and fair price, the AC100 is suitable for a wide range of applications in research and production.

The AC100 is supplied either as pure hardware + Windows driver for custom development or bundled with the BeamformX application software from OptiNav.

AC100 BeamformX software

BeamformX uses an advanced new evaluation algorithm, the Robust Functional Beamforming. Compared to conventional beamforming methods, Robust Functional Beamforming works faster, has a higher dynamic range and can resolve more details spatially and temporally. Robust Functional Beamforming has been developed by Robert P. Dougherty, OptiNav Inc USA.

The stored raw data can also be used in postprocessing with the SAMURAI software from SINUS Messtechnik. The AC100 can be supplied either as pure hardware with Windows driver (API) or as an integrated hardware and tablet solution.
