In 2023, Klippel will release a Polar Scanner for a fast, fully automatic 360° directivity measurement. It extends the product range of its existing scanner solutions (Near Field Scanner and Multi-Scanning Workbench) to new applications, such as microphones, portable audio sources, or combinations of both (e.g., smart speaker). By rotating the device under test (DUT) with two turntables the Polar Scanner can measure all kinds of microphones, including studio, test and measurement, MEMS, arrays, headsets, and wearables as well as a small loudspeaker (<10kg), such as studio monitors, smart speakers, and other personal audio devices. Furthermore, smart devices can be comprehensively tested by measuring both the receiving characteristics of the microphone and the radiation behavior of the loudspeakers.
More information follow soon.
