Refining workflow possibilities, improving collaboration and adding a new low-channel count data acquisition option
With the release of it new sound & vibration platform BK Connect last year, Brüel & Kjær changed the rules of the testing-workflow relationship by focusing on a user-centric interface and strong team collaboration.
BK Connect 2019.0
The BK Connect 2019.0 software
release continues to focus on
ensuring that each individual user in the measurement chain has the tools and
flexibility they need across the gamut of testing needs in any workflow.
Some of the improvements to BK Connect are:
- CANBus (OBDII and J1939) monitoring and recording
- A Generator Setup Task that can be used in Standard Measurements
- Monitor Recorder and Time Data Recorder
- A simplified operator-test engineer workflow with a new Standard Processing Setup Task and a new Time Editor Task
- Integration and Acoustic Weighting options to improve validation
- An improved workflow for the new Matrix Calculator Task and a powerful tool for customising task layouts

Synergising with BK Connect’s focus on test and
measurement processes, Brüel & Kjær has developed Team Server, a new
approach to quickly, efficiently find and securely share data amongst a team.
With traditional database-type data managers, simple requests for data can easily turn into hours of browsing through folders, files and databases – especially if the data was processed years ago and the archive is shared by many. To help solve this problem, Team Server automatically indexes data added to projects, creating a repository of data files to offer advanced search functionality across the team working on a network of client PCs. Unlike generic document indexing systems, Team Server’s indexing makes the most of metadata, based on relevant descriptors and attributes rather than just extracting keywords. This intelligent approach delivers much greater value for teams.

LAN-XI Light with a generator output channel
To facilitate data acquisition where an output channel is needed, but only a few input channels are required, Brüel & Kjær has introduced a new LAN-XI Light data acquisition module with 4 input channels and 1 output channel – LAN-XI Light Type 3677. LAN-XI Light data acquisition modules are perfect for measurement applications that do not require more than four channels – such as quick production quality assurance measurements, noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) recording or battery-operated recording in the field. This latest addition to the LAN-XI family, adds a generator output channel for applications such as modal analysis.
LAN-XI Light Type 3677 data acquisition module’s default configuration has four BNC connectors and one BNC output channel that can be used as a signal generator with frequency range from 0 to 25.6 kHz. However, this module can optionally support 200 V microphones requiring 7-pin LEMO connectors when fitted with the appropriate front panel.
