The VIBpoint Framework V3.0 by Data Translation uses dynamic signal acquisition (DAQ) and provides continuous or burst DAC output of noise, swept sine, and fixed frequency waveforms. Courtest: Data TranslationData Translation Inc. released the VIBpoint Framework V3.0. The new version of the software provides tools to output stimuli with waveform generation. The VIBpoint Framework application, combined with DT dynamic signal acquisition (DAQ) devices, provides a complete vibration testing solution. The software is navigated through a series of easy-to-use configuration windows, allowing flexible selection of the desired acquisition, processing, plotting and display parameters.

New waveform output features include the following: 

  • Continuous or burst D ac output of noise, swept sine and fixed frequency waveforms
  • Synchronize output start/stop with analog input, or start/stop manually
  • Specify waveform on/off time and ramp up/ramp down time
  • Lock total waveform duration to analysis frame time (triggered), or total acquisition time (free run)
  • Specify waveform peak voltage and offset. 

Fixed Frequency options include:

  • Output frequency value
  • Sine, square, ramp or triangle wave
  • Continuous, burst, or repeat burst output 

Swept Sine options:

  • Start/end output frequency values
  • Single sweep or loop
  • Linear or Log frequency change

Noise options:

  • Random, Random Normal, or Pink noise
  • Continuous, burst, or repeat burst output
  • True random or Pseudo random noise

Potential users can download a full-featured beta version timed to expire on September 7, 2012, by visiting this link.
