The jBEAM software package from Kistler is a versatile solution for test data analysis and visualization.

Analyzing and visualizing measurement data with jBEAM software

jBEAM – the comprehensive software solution for analyzing, visualizing and reporting on measurement data. jBEAM can be used both as a desktop program and in web-based measurement data management (MDM) systems such as MaDaM.

Numerous vehicle manufacturers and their key suppliers have already chosen our platform-independent, multilingual software: for their research and development processes, jBEAM provides them with a strategic, global solution that includes both universal and application-specific data analysis, calculation and reporting capabilities.

Applications for jBEAM

Kistler provides various measurement technologies for combustion analysis in research and development.

Data from engines and turbochargers

jBEAM enables comprehensive analysis of engine test data thanks to features such as automatic detection of speed/manifold pressure test points based on continuous time signals. Map matrices are calculated and visualized either on a mathematical level or for display purposes. Difference plots showing map differences between two tests are also supported. As an additional benefit, jBEAM allows interactive fitting: manually changeable cursors make it possible to define sections through the maps which can then be calculated and compared. By default, jBEAM supports combustion engines as well as electric motors in two operating modes (operation as motor or generator). ISO power lines can be added to the graphical representation in no time at all.
