Quickly pinpoint where the vibration is coming from.
- Which Wheel/Suspension (LF-RF-LR-RR)
- Which Brake (LF-RF-LR-RR)
- Which Driveshaft (Front- Rear)
- Engine and Engine Driven Pulleys
- Transmission and Transfer case
The iVA uses Quad Vibration Technology™ (QVT) This technology locates and identifies the vibration then rates the vibration severity with advanced color coding. The iVA locates multiple vehicle vibrations simultaneously. The iVA displays a vehicle topology map that highlights the severity of vibrations with yellow, orange, and red. No need to analyze graphs or charts, but these are easily accessible at any time.
The iVA simplifies setup!
Eliminates the need for separate hardware such as an oscilloscope and J2534 device. All you need to start testing is your Windows PC. To start; enter the Tire Size, Ring, and Pinion Ratio and Vehicle Drive Type (Front Wheel Drive, Rear Wheel Drive, All wheel drive, and Four Wheel Drive). If the Ring and Pinion is unknown the iVA will automatically calculate the Ring and Pinion Gear Ratio. Simply attach the magnetic sensors to the suspension components. Setup takes less than 5 minutes in most cases!
The Intelligent Vibration Analyzer Module™ (iVA Module) houses an advanced electronic system that contains a Data Acquisition Device (DAQ) for sampling the signals from the Smart Vibration Sensors and iVA Microphones. The iVA Module also contains a Vehicle Communications Interface (VCI) that communicates with vehicle Engine Control Modules from 1996 to present. Communication Bus Types Supported; J1850 VPW, J1850 MPW, J1850 PWM with IFR, ISO 9141-2, KPW2000, KPW2000 Slow init, and CAN.
The Smart Vibration Sensor™ (SVS) uses multiple 3-axis accelerometers (X, Y, and Z) to locate vibrating components. These are smart sensors in that they allow all three channels from the accelerometer to be monitored at all times. This is accomplished by summing the X, Y and Z channels being monitored within the vibration sensor itself. That way the total amplitude produced from the X, Y or Z channels is analyzed. This will enable the DAQ to read the total amplitude from all three accelerometer axis produced from the sensor providing vibration in all directions. When four vibration sensors are used the iVA DAQ can monitor 12 accelerometer (X, Y and Z) axis continuously.
The iVA Microphone is an amplified 20-20KHz electric microphone that picks up sounds waves from the surrounding air. The iVA Microphone Modes then process these sound waves using a Fast Fourier Frequency (FFT), which is the default reading, a Frequency Plot (FP), or can be played with a WAV audio file that is either live or recorded. The iVA Microphone quickly attaches with a built-in neodymium rare earth magnet.
The iVA Microphone Clamp is an amplified 20-20KHz electric microphone that picks up sound waves from the metal components. The iVA Microphone Modes then process these sound waves using a Fast Fourier Frequency (FFT), which is the default reading, a Frequency Plot (FP), or can be played with a WAV audio file that is either live or recorded. The iVA Microphone Clamp quickly attaches with a spring clamp.
The iVA Stereo Jack Cable is a 20 ft cable that comes in 4 colors; Yellow, Red, Green, and Blue. These cables quickly attach with neodymium rare earth magnet cable holders that are attached to the cable.
The iVA Data Link Connector Cable allows the iVA Module to connect to the DLC on the vehicle. This allows the iVA Module to communicate with the Engine Control Module on the vehicle.
The iVA C-Clamps attach the Smart Vibration Sensors and iVA Microphones to components that are nonmagnetic. The C-Clamps are attached using a clamping force to components made from metals such as aluminum. The Smart Vibration Sensor and iVA Microphones then attach to the flat surface of the C-Clamp.
The iVA USB Cable connects the iVA Module to your Windows-based Personal Computer (PC). This cable allows the iVA Module to transmit data to the PC. The PC then processes this data with the advanced iVA software.
The iVA Stereo Earphones allow you to hear the noise from each individual microphone
The iVA USB Program Card allows you to install the advanced iVA program onto your PC. If you need assistance with the iVA program or use of the iVA call ATS Support at 1-800-572-6112. ATS Support is free for 1 year and is USA-based.
The iVA Tape Measure is used to measure the engine pulley diameters. Both drive and driven pulleys can be tested for vibration and noise by the iVA if the pulley diameters are known.
The iVA Pressure Sensitive Tape is used to attach the iVA Stereo Jack Cables to the painted surfaces of the vehicle. This tape is a residue-free tape that will not damage paint or leave any film on painted surfaces.
