Prepolarized ICP® Array microphones are a cost-effective alternative to the higher end, class one test and measurement microphones. They are suitable for sound measurements within the normal human hearing range.
PCB®’s 130 series of array microphones single piece units include a built-in preamplifier. Multiple array microphones with their excellent phase characteristics can be combined with the appropriate software to effectively map acoustic energy flow. The number of microphones, spacing and predetermined patterns, which are typically dictated by the software and application, allow you to analyze spatial transformation of complex sound fields to understand hot spots. Noise source location can be pinpointed and the speed and direction of sound can be determined.
These value-priced array microphones are an excellent choice for large channel count applications such as noise identification, near field acoustic holography, sound pressure mapping, and beamforming.
All PCB® array microphones come standard with TEDS functionality and are compliant with the IEEE (P)1451.4 standard. Transducer Electronic Data Sheets (TEDS) enhance the identification of each microphone.
