Our team here at The Modal Shop had a little fun this April Fool’s Day, making a cup of tea with a Portable Vibration Calibrator. While a PVC might be overkill for your tea-making needs, we do have calibrators available to rent for loop checking or calibrating sensors, whether it’s as a part of your routine maintenance or to test sensors when false alarms are suspected. Make sure you don’t miss our handy tea-making tips (and sound and vibration tips, too) by following us on LinkedIn.
Remote Vibration Monitoring:
As Simple as it Gets
Looking to try out remote vibration monitoring equipment? ROCK is a cable-free, easy-to-deploy device that monitors for excess vibration and sends alerts when limits are exceeded. If your project is located near historic buildings, tunnels, dams, bridges, or other delicate infrastructure, vibration monitoring may be required. ROCK makes it easy. Want to see for yourself?

Sound Level Meter Tech Tip:
Reference Spectra
Comparing the sounds of a variety of individual widgets? Evaluating machinery to troubleshoot wear and tear or other problems? Want to get “before and after” data of noise control measures?

An often overlooked feature of the Larson Davis SoundAdvisor™ Sound Level Meter Model 831C with optional Octave Band Analysis is the ability to set a reference spectrum. Once set, comparing data between a 1/1 and/or 1/3 octave measurement set and the reference baseline makes it extremely easy to spot frequency-based changes.
