01DB CUBE SMART NOISE MONITORING TERMINAL
CUBE is the new noise monitoring terminal from 01dB, at the cutting edge of innovation. Designed to meet the needs of all kinds of application, CUBE can be adapted to suit every situation: portable in a carrying case, stationary in a fixed unit, and compatible with 01dB WebMonitoring services. It stays connected around the clock, operating continuously and responding simultaneously to your requirements: acoustic and meteorological measurements, automatic publication of data, communication of alarms, as well as parameter configuration changes, real-time display or listening option, etc.
With an IEC 61672 class 1 certification, CUBE guarantees flawless metrological quality in every situation. In addition, to provide you with information about the measurements, CUBE incorporates the most sophisticated event-detection filter system. As a result, various actions are triggered automatically, including coding, signal recording, notification by text messaging, and start-up of warning lights.
CUBE is part of a unique "ecosystem" focused on improving your productivity. You will appreciate its simplicity of use, its degree of remote controllability and the power of its processing software. By combining CUBE with 01dB WebMonitoring services, measurements can be accessed via a customized Web interface. CUBE is the ultimate noise monitoring terminal.
01DB « ECOSYSTEM »
The 01dB "ecosystem" is all about synergy between the products in its new range. CUBE, DUO, FUSION: three units, three fields of application but one single “ecosystem” focused on improving your productivity.
To this end, they all operate in the same way with respect to the integrated keyboard and Web interface. They use identical data processing software. And they all share the same accessories.
These complementary and innovation-packed systems offer harmonized and intuitive interfaces so as to ensure major time-savings for users.
CUBE offers excellent connectivity, with a built-in 3G modem, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Ethernet and ADSL connections. It monitors around the clock, responds to your requests and keeps you informed of situations encountered:
acoustic and meteorological measurements
structured storage of information
automatic transmission of data to one or two remote servers
changes to parameter configuration via a Web interface from your computer or smartphone
real-time listening to the measured noise
real-time display of data
text message sent upon low internal battery
communication of alarms to 01dB WebMonitoring services, etc.
It's all within your reach, whether you are 10 m or 10,000 km away!
The CUBE system is certified IEC 61672 class 1 and is approved in numerous countries.
During acoustic monitoring, there may be multiple noise sources to be measured, located in varying positions relative to the measurement point (e.g. land transport, aircraft, industrial noise and worksites). CUBE can be used to take measurements in two reference directions: 0° or 90°.
Combined with a DMK01 outdoor microphone unit, CUBE is fully compliant with applicable standards in both cases. With an angle of incidence from the noise source at +/-30° relative to the reference direction, CUBE offers complete reliability. It is particularly well suited to outdoor measurement configurations, regardless of the weather, as it is designed to withstand meteorological constraints.
In addition, electronic verification of the metrology chain enables the reliability of measurements to be checked regularly. Multi-frequency checks provide an improved assessment of any damage to the microphone membrane.
SOPHISTICATED EVENTS MODULE
CUBE incorporates the most sophisticated event-detection filter system, from the simplest to the most complex configuration.
At a basic level, the user can define an event, comprising a trigger that can be programmed over a maximum of 24 time periods. All parameters (overall level, spectral level, sliding Leq, meteorological parameters, etc.) instantaneously stored at the logging interval can be used to define the trigger. With the advanced module, up to five events can be programmed, each comprising a combination of logic statements ("AND" or "OR") for several triggers (maximum of five).
Each event can be activated according to the day of the week, and can trigger different actions: digital coding, recording of an audio signal (MP3 or WAV), triggering of a parallel recording with a faster logging interval, sending of customized text messages, triggering of predefined actions from the TTL output, start-up of warning lights, etc
In association with 01dB WebMonitoring, CUBE offers you access to comprehensive and high-performance Web-based services:
secure cloud storage of your data
online presentation of measurement data via a dedicated Web interface
customization using the desired graphical style
new banner displaying weather information
real-time and offline display of spectrograms
real-time tracking of alarms
publication of summary reports
FTP access to raw data
periodic system checks and maintenance, etc.
CUBE and 01dB WebMonitoring combine to enhance the quality to your analysis of monitoring data.
CUBE offers the ability to interface with the VAISALA WXT520 (six sensors) and WMT52 (two sensors) stations. 01dB chose these two stations as neither features moving parts. This avoids any risk of mechanical malfunction as a result of freezing temperatures or wear. The weather station and CUBE share a power supply with a 10 m cable connecting the two units, thereby offering excellent flexibility when installing the system.
Meteorological data is stored on the CUBE system and transmitted in the same way as acoustic data (WiFi, 3G modem, USB cable, etc.). The logging interval for meteorological data is a multiple of the acoustic logging interval.
Using the remote interface, the user can view the wind speed and direction (and possibly additional weather data) in real time.
In addition to its technical performance, CUBE comes with numerous accessories for ease of installation and use:
DSC01 autonomous (up to 30 days) and weatherproof case
interface with weather station (two or six sensors)
DIN-rail mounting system (typical of protection units)
pole for DMK01 outdoor microphone unit
extension cable to connect the antennas at a distance (WiFi, 3G and GPS) outside the units.
