ORION smart vibration monitor from 01dB was the big winner at the 2018 New Civil Engineer Tunnelling Awards

ORION smart vibration monitor wins major award for keeping London’s historic Bank district protected during underground construction.
01db’s innovative ORION smart vibration monitor was the big winner at the prestigious 2018 New Civil Engineer Tunnelling Awards – a celebration of global tunnelling expertise and project excellence – held in London last December.
The award for Innovation in Technical Product or Equipment recognised ORION’s significant role in London Underground’s Bank Tube Station capacity upgrade project which is due for completion in 2020. Construction contractor, Spanish infrastructure giant Dragados, chose ORION for its unique ability to simultaneously capture vibration dose values, peak particle velocity data and re-radiated noise as a result of vibration, in a single piece of monitoring equipment in real time.
Acoustic1, 01dB’s exclusive UK distributor was responsible for commissioning the ORION smart vibration meters that have been placed in buildings, including banks and hotels, above the construction site, to measure vibration and re-radiated noise from tunnelling and excavation works. For the first time, accurate and easily accessible online data is allowing Dragados and environmental consultants working with individual properties to pinpoint the exact cause and origin of particular re-radiated noise and vibration.

Royal Institution Christmas Lectures

January 2, 2018

We are all proud at Acoustic1 to have taken part in an experiment at the Royal institution Christmas Lectures with Professor Sophie Scott.
The experiment involved using our Acoustic Camera: the Noise Inspector to image the resonant air from an old style tea chest base.
I think the experiment was a great success, but you can see for yourselves on the BBC iPlayer, just follow the link below ...

Many thanks to all at the Royal Institution we had great fun.

In partnership with Marshall Day Acoustics, 01dB introduces IRIS, a powerful measurement tool for room acoustics. A concert hall must have perfect acoustics whatever the viewer's seat.
IRIS allows to view and analyze easily the acoustic impulse response in a room. Thanks to this system, it is now easy to compare the acoustic performance between seats and to correct architectural aberrations causing malfunction.
IRIS has been designed by practising acousticians for easy reliable and efficient measurements in real-world situations.

With IRIS, you see what you’ve heard.

01dB introduces Noise Inspector, the best solution for acoustic cameras, developed by his partner CAE Software and Systems.
Powerful, versatile and flexible, the Noise Inspector range is at the forefront of technological innovation in the field of sound source localization.

With great ease of system setting up, sound and vibration emissions becomes quickly visible.

The software is easy to use for non-specialists and offers great advanced functionalities for professionals in acoustics. The results are acoustic images or movies, easy to interpret, and easy to communicate. Noise Inspector is the perfect mobile tool to help you determine dominant sound sources in the Environment, improve your product quality, minimize development time and to save your resources. The system guarantees precise and uncomplicated determination of acoustic sources, also convinces through its really low costs.

Acoustic Cameras are now at your fingertips!
