Hardware and setup requirements
To measure the sound levels, the SoundManager interfaces with a Class-1 sound measuring device like Bruel & KJaer, Rion or Norsonic, but can also be used with other sound measuring equipment that allows communication with a standard PC environment through RS-232, USB or TCP/IP Protocols.The measuring device must first be connected to a small single board computer before the data is send over fibre or modem to the Sound Manager computer
For the inner posts we use Mylaps hardware (loop, decoder and transponders) to be able to identify individual sound violators. Most of the times the Mylaps hardware can at the same time be used for timing purposes.
The RSTime SoundManager is a sound measuring module that is part of the RSTime platform but can also run without any other RSTime programs. The software runs on a normal Windows computer.
- Measure, store and report all sound levels.
- Detect and identify sound violators (with help of Mylaps transponders).
- Possible to receive vehicle data (start number and name) from the timing system. Data will be printed on report.
- Optional to stream the sound to a hard-disk. Replay sound at any moment.
- Supports multiple sound points on and outside the track
- Clear reports stating all sound levels per hour, part of a day, day, month, year and more. Adapted to government requirements.
- Supports all Mylaps hardware
- Bruel&Kjaer, Rion or Norsonic sound measurement devices are supported.
