With HRT I, users can perform automated, orientation-dependent acoustic measurements. With the help of the turntable, for example, telephones, televisions with pedestals, (video) conference systems, loudspeakers, and measurement equipment (e.g., the HMS artificial head measurement system with torso box) can be rotated to specific angles. The rotation unit of the turntable offers a 360° rotation range, which can be approached in 0.1° steps. The adjusted angles can be reproduced to an accuracy of 0.02°. HRT I can be manually operated via buttons on the turntable's front panel. This enables users to set an absolute reference position (0° position) and rotate the turntable clockwise or counter-clockwise. In addition to the manual control, users can automatically control the HRT I via the communication analysis system ACQUA to conduct fully automated measurements. Based on the RS485 interface, data transmission over long distances is possible. The turntable has a sturdy design: test objects up to 50 kg can be precisely aligned. HRT I is also designed so that it does not generate any noise in the measurement position. Only during rotation is there low noise emission.
