Annotation 2020-04-19 085507.png

Dear customer, thank you for purchasing an OROS Teamwork instrument. The Teamwork instruments are designed to fulfill industrial applications of noise and vibration measurement and analysis.

Your new instrument covers most of the measurement situations in the Automotive, Manufacturing and automation, Energy & Process, Aerospace and Marine industries. It applies for real-time/Post-analyses as well as recording/playback of a raw signal.

These instruments are suitable for field, on board and laboratory operations. They are also capable of remote/standalone measurements without any operator at their side.

OROS Teamwork analyzers mainly run while connected to a Windows PC that drives the control and analysis software.

OR34 Compact analyzer

OR34 is a compact analyzer. It offers 2 or 4 dynamic inputs with 2 ext. sync and 1 generator.

All the connections of OR34 instruments comply with SELV (Safety Extra Low Voltage) conditions.

OR34 Powering on

A beep is produced when the instrument is connected to the mains.

Power on OR34 Instrument by pressing the On/Off button of the back panel and wait until a beep is produced (2 sec) then release the button. The LED is fast flashing green (system is loading) and then slow flashing green (system OK).

Power off OR34 Instrument by pressing the On/Off button of the back panel (The LED is flashing red) Then wait until a beep is produced (2 sec) to release the button.

If OR34 Instrument does not respond, unplug the main power supply and press the reset button Usersmanual 55.png (use a paperclip) of the back panel.

OR35/OR36/ORMP/OR38 Teamwork instruments

OR35, OR36, ORMP & OR38 cover high end applications with multi-channels chassis. They offer from 4 to 32 universal inputs, 2 ext. synch, 2 generators and optional auxiliary channels supporting generators, trigger/tach and parametric inputs.

The universal inputs gather both dynamics and parametric input in the same board and connectors. The type of use of the universal inputs is selectable by software (NVGate®) during the analyzer operations. The universal inputs fulfill all the performances, precision and operability of each specific input type. All the connections are Very Low Safety Voltage.

Inputs LED colors

For each input connector LED shows the current status:

Color Input type Signal level
Green Dynamic FS<ref>Full scale</ref>-30 dB < Signal < FS
Cyan Dynamic 0 < Signal < FS-30 dB
Red Dynamic/Parametric Signal > FS (Overload)
Yellow Parametric FS-30 dB < Signal < FS
Purple Parametric 0 < Signal < FS-30 dB
Off Inactive N.A.

Lateral panel

With the universal inputs and the adapted connection kit<ref>Not available for ORMP</ref>, the OR35, OR36 and OR38 can hold signal conditioning modules called XPod (dockable eXPander module).

Usersmanual 32.jpg

The XPod is a device that can be fixed on the OR35/OR36/OR38 side. Each XPod is associated to a block of 8 inputs.

The following optional XPod are available:

  • Bridge signal conditioning for strain gauges, dynamic pressure and force measurements.
  • Thermocouple and RTDs for temperature measurements.

To fix the XPod on the analyzer:

1. Warning: do not plug or unplug the XPod when the analyzer is powered on, shut it down for this operation.

2. Lock the XPod hook in the notch on the back of the analyzer,

3. Lower the XPod to the corresponding connector on the top of the analyzer,

4. Secure the XPod on the analyzer with the screw on the extension key of the XPod

Note: When travelling, fix the XPod on the analyzer to avoid any damages. When there is no XPod, fix the rubber cover on the analyzer. There are two rubber covers on the XPod which allows having a cover left if one is lost.

Back Panels

The back panel supports the connectivity, power supply and accessories connections.

All the connections of OR36, ORMP and OR38 instruments comply with SELV (Safety Extra Low Voltage) conditions.

Back panel connectors description
  • 2 Ethernet (1 Gb/s) connectors for connection to PC and cascade of analyzers.
  • Connect the PC to IN
  • In cascade mode connect the PC to first analyzer (master) to IN. Next units are daisy chained (OUT -> IN, OUT- > IN, etc…) in cascaded mode.
  • Cable required Category 5 unshielded twisted-pair. Use the blue cables.
  • 2 clock synchronization connectors (100 Mb/s Ethernet)
  • Do not use while using a sole analyzer
  • Daisy chain from Master unit to the next one in cascaded mode (OUT -> IN, OUT- > IN, etc…)
  • On the Mobi-Pack, synchronization connectors are on the front panel
  • DC power in XLR connector<ref>Not available on ORMP </ref>. To be plug with the external power supply.

Warning, do not mix the instrument power supply types.

  • Mobi-disk. The Mobi-Disk holds the recorded raw data.

, Caution, power off the analyzer prior removing or inserting it.

  • When using the analyzer without the Mobi-disk plugged-in, use the obturator cover to protect the internal part of the analyzer
  • Disk activity LED. The LED will flash while data are written on or read from the disk.
  • USB 2.0 for raw data recording. To record on a external disk, power off the analyzer, remove the Mobi-Disk (put the obturator cover), plug you USB memory device and power on. The raw data will be saved on the memory device.

Caution, the write speed on your memory device may lead to a throughput error, check the performance before using it for actual measurements

  • Interface connector: RS-232 for remote control through RJ11 connector
  • Reset. To be used when your analyzer does no respond to any command. Insert a paper clip in the hole and press smoothly.
  • Accessory Power supply. This connector provides power supply for external use (transducer, tachometer, etc… power supply). The available voltage and power are:
  • +5 V, 3 W, 1.6 A
  • +9 V, 6 W, 650 mA
  • +15 V, 6 W, 25 mA
  • High speed port: Used for connection the CAN bus probe

OROS Teamwork instruments contains an internal battery block particularly useful for autonomous operations (except for OR34) or in case of temporary power failure (all OROS Teamwork instruments).

The batteries of OROS Teamwork instruments are designed to provide maximum trouble-free life. To obtain the longest battery life, please follow the following advice:

  • Caution: Temperature above normal room temperature will shorten battery life. If OROS Teamwork instruments is stored or shipped at more than 40°C (104°F), recharge it before running the system.
  • Charge the battery in cool area. The battery is charging when an OROS Teamwork instrument is plugged to a power supply. Charge stops when the Front Panel indicates 100%.
  • Caution: Never store OROS Teamwork instruments with a discharged battery.

All batteries gradually lose their charge (the higher the temperature is, the quicker the batteries lose their charge). If you store your system for a long time without using it, recharge the batteries every two or three months. This practice will extend battery life.


The cooling fan is used to reduce the temperature inside OROS Teamwork instruments. From the Front Panel the user can manually switch it on or switch off (for very sensitive acoustic measurements).

The fan operation will be automatically forced when the temperature inside the OROS Teamwork instruments reaches 50°C and stops at 43°C.

Warning: Do not cover the Teamwork instrument in order to let the ventilation operate properly.
