First measurement mics from AP
Test and measurement manufacturer Audio Precision has unveiled a line of calibrated measurement microphones for its electroacoustic test equipment. The free-field, pre-polarised units combine mic capsules with low-noise preamplifiers, and are described as the ideal complement to its APx audio analysers. The family includes two ½-inch and two ¼-inch measurement mics, as well as an occluded ear simulator. Each mic is delivered with its own certificate of calibration and is TEDS programmed to the IEEE 1451.4 standard for SMART transducers. TEDS (Transducer Electronic Data Sheet) data contains microphone identification and calibration information that can be read by a connected instrument, such as the APx1701 transducer test interface.
All units are pre-polarised, TEDS-compliant and CCP powered. The microphones are calibrated, ensuring the utmost of confidence in measurement results when paired with calibrated instruments such as the APx515 audio analyser and APx1701 Transducer Test Interface. Each mic is delivered with its own certificate of calibration.
‘The addition of measurement microphones to our product portfolio is truly exciting,’ states Dave Schmoldt, Audio Precision CEO. ‘For AP system users, it creates an expanded solution for evaluating the analogue, digital and electroacoustic performance of their audio components.’
