By using an array of sophisticated sound sensors, the SV600 can be mounted close to any equipment or asset, to any area of the production line, or where human access is restricted or dangerous to ensure you can monitor the most important parts of your facility without interruption.

As a fixed, automated solution, the SV600 integrates with your process and eliminates the need for lengthy fault-finding processes such as soapy water tests, when used as part of your product leak testing process. By continuously monitoring your environment, you can quickly detect and fix air leaks – reducing your consumption of compressed air and energy to help save your facility money.

Key Features:

  • High-end 24/7 acoustic monitoring
  • 64-Digital MEMS microphones placed in a Sunflower Array
  • Integrated visual light camera
  • Powerful processor for onboard real time processing
    • Sound classification
    • Frequency filtering
    • dB values and sound intensity mapping
    • Event triggering
  • Ethernet network communications interface with installed 8-wire M12 fieldbus or RJ45 connector
  • Power over Ethernet (POE)
  • Ingress Protection IP54
  • Option for IO support through fieldbus coupler

SoundMap™ Technology

By using powerful SoundMap™ technology, the SV600 translates the sounds that it hears into a visual representation so that you can quickly locate and quantify problem areas. This provides facilities with further insights into product quality or safety concerns, as well as the ability to quickly detect changes across compressors, pumps, pipes, and more.

In addition to 24/7 remote monitoring, the SV600 integrates into factory systems seamlessly and user-defined alarms can be established to alert users when sound signatures have changed, even in the parts of your facility that are hard to reach.

By serving as an early warning system, facilities can continuously monitor equipment to optimize performance, perform preventative maintenance or detect anomalies well before a failure occurs to keep your processes up and running.

SV600 Payload for Spot® from Boston Dynamics

The SV600 Acoustic Imager can currently be used as a payload for Spot® from Boston Dynamics. Spot automates sensing and inspection, captures limitless data and can explore without boundaries, all while the SV600 enables you to continuously detect, locate and visualize the unheard and unseen.

System Setup

SV600 System Setup

The SV600 Fixed Acoustic Imager can be used across numerous industries and is ideal for continuous monitoring and control. Several places where the SV600 can be used include the following list below. Click here if you would like to speak with an expert to discuss your application.

  • Minimize human intervention
    Improve workers’ safety overall with a fully integrated, automated solution.
  • Monitor assets and workspaces 24/7
    Continuously monitor assets in dangerous or inaccessible locations at a safe distance, receive immediate alarms for new sound events or detect escaping gases from fixed equipment.
  • Intelligent leak detection for product inspection
    Using factory integration and real-time alarm features, the SV600 can automate acoustic detection on the production line and immediately notify your team of any quality issues or product rejects, improving productivity.
  • Reduce noise exposure
    The SV600 includes user-programmable alarms for sound level (dB) and frequency (kHz) to help facilities better meet national and international standards and ensure workers are not exposed to dangerous noise and sound levels.
  • Prevent unscheduled maintenance
    Sound signatures are measurable well before any change in temperature can be detected. The SV600 can be used to find sound signature changes early on so facilities can schedule preventative maintenance and optimize performance before a failure occurs.
  • Reduce power consumption
    By quickly detecting and fixing air leaks, you can reduce your consumption of compressed air and energy to help save your facility money. Faulty, inefficient drive systems need to work harder, consuming additional power to stay operational.
