New-Generation Black-Box Acoustics Analyzer
with 24-bit A/D Converters and USB 2 Interface
The new SINUS Apollo_box is our flexible and inexpensive 4-channel front-end device with USB 2.0 interface. The robust and small box can easily be used with any Windows Personal Computer and a wide range of application software.

It is a universal portable measuring system for acoustic, vibration and engineering measurements in general, representing the latest generation of mobile PC-controlled instruments on the basis of the new Apollo™ hardware platform.

According to your requirements you may choose from variants having 4 main channels with LEMO7 or BNC input connectors. The additional 8 slow channels, 2 Tacho & Trigger channels, Synchronization port and AUX port make the Apollo_box suitable for many applications. You can use up to 4 boxes with one PC to increase the number of channels; the Apollo_box can also be used as a channel extension unit for the ruggedized Soundbook_MK2.

The Apollo_box is particularly suitable for:
  • Industrial safety and environmental protection
  • Engineering services
  • Quality assurance
  • Research and development.
Our SAMURAI™ 2.0. software package includes sound level meters according to IEC 61672-1 and third-octave analyzers according to IEC 61260, with 2 or 4 channels. For multi-channel systems with 4x Apollo_box we offer the extension to 16 channels.

Alternative software solutions include: In combination with the modular software packages offered, Apollo™ can be employed for the following applications (and more):
  • Sound level measurement
  • Frequency analysis
  • Signal recording
  • Human vibration measurement
  • Order analysis
  • Pass-by noise measurement
  • Building acoustics
  • Machine vibration measurement
  • Modal analysis
  • Order tracking analysis
  • Operational vibration analysis

General technical specification of APOLLO_box
The following data refer to the 4-channel versions Apollo_box_4L (LEMO7) and Apollo_box_4B (BNC). Alternatively we offer the Apollo_PCIe slot card with 4 input channels (BNC) or 8 input channels (SMB). The Apollo_box is able to operate with any Windows-based PC via USB 2 interface.
