B&K 7830 : Qualifier Software £ 4 a day *
 
Building Acoustics Software - Windows® based software.
 
B&K 7830 Qualifier Software Having made airborne, impact or reverberation time measurements with a 2250 Building Acoustics Analyser or a 2260D Analyser, use the 7830 Qualifier software running on a PC to post-process and document your results.
 
Using Qualifier's spreadsheet-like data sheets, it is possible to manually adjust data used in calculations, for example, to change levels or reverberation times. The results can be observed immediately.
 
Reverberation-time measurements may be averaged in two ways: either averaging of reverberation times (T20 and T30) or averaging of decay curves (multi spectra), also called ensemble averaging.
 
This mode has the advantage of producing an average decay curve (multi spectrum) for each frequency band. Extensive documentation facilities are available. These allow items such as SRI graphs and text to be entered into a report and sent to the printer. Graphs can also be exported via the clipboard.
 
B&K have a FAQ - frequently asked question page relating to the 7830 Qualifier software on their web site.
