Figures 8(c), 8(d), 8(e), and 8(f) show the "bad" pulses which are due to electromagnetic disturbances and microphonics. One can see the difference just by naked eye.
Therefore in my personal opinion, the influence of this microphonic space is as important as the real acoustic response of the room in the whole structure of the system.
The device was adapted from strain-sensitive "microphonic cable technology that is used on outdoor perimeter fencing to the specialized requirements of detecting impacts to metal, wood, or masonry materials," he added.
Tubes can be microphonic, that is, they can pick up and amplify vibrations.
TH-AM-OF5-1: Electrical Noise Generated from the Microphonic Effect in Capacitors
Senstar-Stellar's product line includes buried cable sensors, microphonic fence sensors, electrostatic field sensors, microwave sensors, video intrusion detection sensors, infrared LED illuminators and system integration tools.
He conceived both the entire orchestra and a smaller group of instruments as two synthesized string basses, which we might call a macrophonic and a microphonic one.
Nevertheless, reports on accuracy of automated home blood pressure monitors are contradictory.[3,5,23-25] The variability between these devices and the standard mercury column sphygmomanometer is attributed to measurement of different circulatory phenomena by different recording techniques.[26] Oscillometry, the technique employed by the F-88, is claimed to be more accurate than the auscultative method, especially in clinical situations when blood flow is diminished.[27] There are no definitive studies comparing oscillometry with other techniques, however, such as ultrasonic and microphonic techniques.
An observational study [29] found that the Cochlear Microphonic (CM) increased normally to 20 mm insertion of a lateral wall electrode however dropped suddenly when inserting beyond 20 mm.
Defined by the Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS), the intent of the NTSWG type-acceptance program is for all telephones used in sensitive discussion areas to be physically incapable of producing any microphonic audio on any wires leaving the instrument while it is in the idle state.
ASCs solutions enable the use of first-rate plug connectors and low microphonic cables in areas with small radii and sharp edges, which has allowed it to excel in both repair and calibration service sectors.
However, important contributions to the detector noise come from vibrations (through the induced thermal dissipations) and are often referred to as microphonic noise.
