GRAS Sound & Vibration, the world leader in automotive acoustic sensors, today announced the launch of the GRAS 147AX CCP Rugged Pressure Microphone for engine noise testing and the GRAS 147EB CCP X-Rugged Microphone for wheelhouse brake noise testing. Together with the versatile GRAS 146AE CCP Free-field microphone, GRAS now has the strongest and most comprehensive range of microphones for all automotive NVH applications.

Achieving data consistency across multiple test locations can be challenging. For a strong brand like Jabra, failures on production lines can have fatal consequences for product releases.

- Jabra and GRAS have been working closely together for several years to meet these challenges, and in this beneficial cooperation GRAS measurement solutions have proven their value.

We are pleased to announce that Niels Jørgen Øhrgaard has joined GRAS Sound & Vibration A/S as the new Vice President for Sales & Marketing replacing Niels Kjærgaard who will take up a new position as Vice President for Business Development.

High resolution audio is quickly becoming an important market driver in personal audio. But it has always been challenging to get repeatable and consistent data in the full audible range. Previous objective measurement methods have had limitations in the frequency response above 10 kHz and have often been based on human “golden ears”. Therefore GRAS has developed the new High Resolution Ear Simulator, which offers a precise method for measuring up to 20 kHz.

This week Support Engineer Santiago Rayes from GRAS participated in the International Congress on Sound and Vibration in Hiroshima, together with our Japanese Partner Marubun. 

Last week we participated at the Automotive Testing Expo in Stuttgart 2018 together with our German Sales Office GRAS-Tippkemper. 

Together with National Instruments, GRAS had the pleasure of hosting a one-day seminar on Acoustic Measurements for Wind Applications last week.
