The Minirator MR-PRO provides a full set of analog audio signals including sine wave, pink noise, white noise, delay test signal, polarity test signal, stepped sweep and continuous sine sweep. Further, a set of wav-files, useful for system optimization, is stored in the internal flash memory. Add your own personal favorites to this set.


The signal balance, phantom power and impedance of the connected load are monitored. The integrated XLR cable tester simplifies trouble shooting tasks.


The workhorse MR2 provides all the basic standard signals at an attractive price point. Both generators are indispensable and proven tools for set-up, maintenance and monitoring of audio equipment of all types. The wide range of functionalities is tailored for measurement tasks in:


• Installed Sound

• Life Safety Systems

• Live Sound

• Broadcast

• Building Acoustics

• Industrial and Aerospace

• Quality Control

Sine


Minirator generates pure sine waveforms at user-selectable fre-quencies and amplitudes. The frequency steps interval can be set to as low as 0.1Hz.


Selectable frequencies from 10 Hz to 20 kHz

• Level range from -80 to +18 dBu

Sweep


The start/stop frequency, step time and a step resolution as fine as 1/12th octave can be adjusted. Audio analyzers

automatically trigger to this signal and record the frequency response of a device under test.

Chirp


The chirp signal is a logarithmic or linear gliding sine sweep signal with continuous frequency increase over time.

Typical applications are recording of frequency responses, impulse response measurements and acoustic assessment

of rooms.

Delay Test Signal


This is the designated reference signal to measure the acoustic propagation delay time from speaker to speaker in e.g. churches or auditoriums. It suits the accurate setup of delay line arrangements, thus the directionality of the signal source will be optimized. Testing is carried out in combination with the XL2 Audio and Acoustic Analyzer or Acoustilyzer AL1.

Pink & White Noise


Pink or white noise is synthesized with high spectral density, normal amplitude distribution and with infinite cycle duration. The Minirator also generates gated pink noise (on/off cycle 1 - 9 seconds) for convenient RT60 measurements with the XL2 Audio and Acoustic Analyzer or Acoustilyzer AL1 is included.

Polarity


Test signal for measuring the polarity of speakers and audio signals. The saw-tooth waveform is an ideal stimulus with only moderate stress to speakers. Testing is carried out in combination with the XL2 Audio and Acoustic Analyzer, Acoustilyzer AL1 or Minilyzer ML1.

User WAV-files *.wav (MR-PRO only)


The Minirator MR-PRO offers a range of additional factory test files, e.g. for speech intelligibility verification. You may store additional user test signals as uncompressed wav-files in the MR-PRO memory. The selected file is seamlessly looped. Wav-file exchange is simplified via the USB port.

Measurement Functions in Generator Mode


Providing a detailed view of the connected load for rapid fault finding


• XLR Signal Balance

• Load Impedance

• Phantom Power Voltage

Cable Test


The MR-PRO verifies the correct XLR cable wiring, detecting all common XLR wiring faults with a precise description, such as “2-3 Crossed” or “Pin 2 open”. Additionally an optional Cable Test Plug may be used for single ended installations.

Impedance and Power Test


MR-PRO measures the impedance, phase and power rating of distributed speaker systems at selectable frequencies. The following parameters of the connected load are shown:


• XLR Signal Balance

• Load Impedance



Store Preset Configurations


Up to 10 complete instrument configurations can be stored in the internal flash memory and reloaded for repetitive tasks. The saved settings may also be transferred to other MR-PRO instruments.

Compensated Output Stage


The output level corresponds over a wide range of loads to the set output voltage compensating the output impedance of the generator. Possible maximum limits when reaching the output current limit are clearly indicated.

Remote Cable Test Plug for MR-PRO


The Remote Cable Test Plug is used for single-ended cable testing. When you do not have access to the far end of a cable to loop back into the MR-PRO (e.g. cable is installed in a building), install the Cable Test Plug at the far end of the cable, the MR-PRO will be able to complete its cable test procedure and display cable condition.

Minirator -40dB Adapter


Attenuator for generating high quality microphone level signals.

70V/100V Protective Adapter for MR-PRO


Protects the Minirator MR-PRO against accidentally applied voltages during impedance or power testing at distributed 70V/100V speaker systems.

Mains Power Adapter


Mains Power Adapter with removable plug types. It suits the typical power sockets in Australia, China, Europe, Japan, US and UK. (Non original power supplies may cause interferences with the measurement.)


An optimized linear power supply adapter with EU-connector is available for unbalanced signal applications requiring a high signal-noise-ratio.

Ever-ready Pouch


The Ever-ready Pouch protects the instrument during transport and operation. With its convenient belt clip, the instrument can be kept close by for those tasks requiring both hands. The Ever-ready Pouch allows operation of the instrument while fitted in the pouch. MR2 requires additional Shock Protection Jacket.

Exel System Case


This compact system case provides the professional transport protection for work in the field. It offers space for the handheld instruments, cables and connectors.

Manufacturer Calibration Certificate


The calibration certificate lists the individual product data with serial number. The calibration and adjustment procedures follow the documentation and traceability requirements of the EN ISO / IEC 17025 standard.


Annual re-calibration of the instrument is recommended ensuring accurate measurements. Calibration certificates for new products have to be ordered together with the product.
