The Sonocat is a high-quality 3D sound intensity probe, equipped with 8 MEMS microphones, perfect for various applications. Whether measuring sound intensity, power, absorption, or source localization, Sonocat excels.

What makes Sonocat unique is its innovative design, overcoming limitations of traditional probes. Operating effortlessly within existing sound fields, it offers seamless compatibility with any object. Experience precision, versatility, and efficiency like never before with Sonocat.


In-situ sound absorption measurements with the Sonocat provide real-time, spatially averaged absorption values. It measures absorption coefficients for various acoustic materials, including complex-shaped noise barriers and diffracting elements.

The Sonocat measures 3D sound intensity and direction, helping locate sound sources. It considers dominant scattering effects, estimating sound intensity and pressure as if it wasn’t present.

The sound power measurement solution provided by Sonocat is incredibly simple to use. You can effortlessly rate and compare various noise sources with precision, while also monitoring multiple additional parameters simultaneously.

SVL is a useful measure of sound because it is directly related to the amount of energy in the sound wave. The higher the SVL, the more energy is in the sound wave, and the louder the sound will be perceived.

An ordinary intensity probe measures active intensity but with the Sonocat we can also measure incident intensity and reflected intensity. Big advantage now is that if the surface emits sound you can see it regardless of what is above the Sonocat/so regardless of the environment the Sonocat is
