There is generally no necessity for download software to get the data from Rion or ANV Measurement Systems. Rion instruments store the data as comma delimited text files (csv) on memory cards and you can download csv files of the data from our LivEnviro Live-to-Web System. These files can, of course, be opened directly into a spreadsheet.
We can, however, provide some excellent software tools to streamline the task of analysing data and wav files from Rion Instruments.
The most straightforward of these are the Excel™ Macros for sorting data from the Rion NL-52/42, the Rion NA-28 and the Rion VM-54.
The Macro for the NL-52/42 supports manual and auto-store and both the octave/third octave and FFT options.
The following macros are currently available for the Rion NA-28.
NX-28FT Tonal Analysis Macro. This analyses data from the NX-28FT narrow band analysis option for the NA-28 in accordance with Annex E of BS 4142:2014/Annex C of ISO 1996-2 providing an objective assessment of the prominence of tones in noise.
NA-28 Data Management Macro. The comma separated text file data can be pulled straight into Excel from the NA-28 (either via USB or the instrument's memory card) but the instrument's comprehensive measurement capability makes the spreadsheet format rather complex. The NA-28 Data Management Macro enables you to choose the parameters you want to look at and how you want them presented quickly, easily and flexibly.
The NA-28 Building Acoustics Macro imports the data from the NX-28BA Building Acoustics Option and pocesses the data in accordance with Approved Document E and ISO 140, graphing it in accordance with ISO 717.
The Macro for the VM-54 streamlines the already quick task of pulling auto-stored data from the Whole Body Vibration option (VX-54WB1) into Excel™ and quickly sorts and graph data from the FFT Narrow Band Analysis (VX-54FT) option.
Rion AS-60/AS-60RT Data Management software provides a really quick and intuitive means of reviewing and analysing logged data from the NL-52/42. It will also support the import of data from older Rion meters such as the NL-32 or 31. If your are carrying out your measurement in octave or third ocatve bands you will require the AS-60RT version fo the software whuch supports this (and NA-28 data). AS-60 is especially useful when you have audio data because it displays file icons for the audio recordings upon zoomable level-time graphs of the survey data. It’s really quick and easy to review long-term survey results and you can investigate noise events and/or periodic recordings very quickly.
Importing data from Rion instruments into AS-60 couldn't be easier. Simply drag and drop the file icons on your desktop onto the AS-60/AS-60RT icon and the files will import automatically.
You can also review, synchronise and analyse data from up to 8 sets of results simultaneously which is a fantasticly efficient way of reviewing baseline or compliance data collected simultaneously at a number of positions.
Rion AS-70 wav file analysis software can be used to analyse the data from any wav file. If the wav file is from a Rion instrument AS-70 will import the calibration data automatically. AS-70 is intuitive and easy to use and it is a very capable analysis package. Features include: 10 msec sampling for analysis of impulsive noise in accordance with Annex E of BS 4142: 2014, Octave and Third Octave Analysis, FFT Narrow Band Analysis and Spectograms
