May 3 2019 -- EMS Brüel & Kjaer is proud to announce the release of the EMU Environmental Monitoring Unit. Capable of measuring noise, vibration, weather and blast overpressure simultaneously, the EMU combines everything needed for continuous measurement, accessed remotely in real time in a single unit. The unit is suitable for outdoor monitoring for compliance assessment, background measurements or specific studies around airports, mines, construction sites, ports and other industries.
Incorporating sensors, data logger, cellular and Wi-Fi communications and battery in a tough waterproof enclosure, the fully integrated solution makes it very simple to use. Simply connect the sensors and switch the unit on to start measurement. There’s no time wasted trying to get equipment from different manufacturers working together nicely. The EMU maintains EMS Brüel & Kjaer’s pedigree for precision, accuracy, reliability and compliance with national and international measurement standards.
Commenting on the launch, Douglas Manvell, instrumentation product manager, said “Noise and vibration instrumentation are a critical part of our ANOMS and Sentinel managed services, deployed in over 42 countries, and this means 2 things. Firstly, they must be capable of measuring a wide range of metrics to meet the different legislative needs. Secondly, they must be easy to use, deploy and be very reliable to maintain high data integrity during long term continuous unattended monitoring at a low cost of operation. The EMU has been engineered with these points in mind and customers using the instruments standalone can enjoy the same benefits”.
Available pole or wall mounted for permanent installation or with a tripod for portable applications, the EMU can be ordered as noise only, vibration only or noise and vibration combined.
The EMU is based on EMS Brüel & Kjaer’s very successful Vibration Monitoring Terminal and existing owners are able to add noise capability by upgrading their units to the new EMU.
