Temperature stability and a robust and protected design to prevent dust and water ingress are additional key features. Basically, our control units are EMC-conform to eliminate an undisirable interaction with other electronic units.

Plugs, installation spaces and mounting options will be matched in cooperation with the customer. The control unit is available with one or two channels so that the soundpackage is expandable e.g. with an in-cabin sound, so that also the passengers can experience the new sound.

Sound Design - Software

The Kendrion Automotive Software for parameterization of the motor sounds allows the creation of a brand-specific vehicle sound.

We offer two options:

  • You can rely on a personally tailored sound profile.
  • We provide the software, which allows you to create an own sound on the graphical user interface.

With the interface to the CAN-Bus all vehicle datas, which are needed for a specific sound generation, will be read. These include the engine speed, the speed and load as well as the current position of the pedal. In order to cover a wide frequency range, there is a sampling rate of up to 22.5 kHz.
