If you need assistance selecting the product that will meet your specific application, please contact us - we work hard to develop long term relationships with our customers. We invite you to start the conversation.

We offer two solutions depending on your application requirements and budget:

SpectraPLUS-SC operates with low cost Windows compatible sound cards.  Two channels of signal analysis are supported with up to 200 kHz sampling rates at up to 24 bit precision.  A wide collection of analysis tools and plots are available depending on your needs.  High quality sound cards are readily available that offer vast performance improvements over the built-in sound cards on most computers.

SpectraPLUS-DT is specifically designed for the Data Translation line of USB Data Acquisition modules.  Up to 16 channels of acquisition and analysis with calibrated input levels, IEPE transducer power, AC or DC coupling and tachometer inputs.  Data Translation offers a complete line of modules from low cost to high speed and high performance.  Click here for more information on the Data Translation hardware.

"SpectraPLUS easily outranks all of the competing mission critical data acquisition/analysis offerings in both ease of use and feature set, with outstanding data presentation capabilities."
