We offer a range of solutions depending on your application requirements and budget:

SpectraPLUS-RT Provides real time spectral analysis with Narrowband, 1/1 or 1/3 Octave resolution.  Signal generation and recording/playback are also available. Designed for users needing a high quality spectrum analyzer with a minimal learning curve.

SpectraPLUS-SC Provides real time, recording/playback and post processing of up to two channels.  Features a comprehensive set of displays for spectrum, time series and phase measurements as well as advanced joint time and frequency analysis (spectrogram and 3-D surface plots). A wide selection of tools and utilities for signal generation, distortion and reverberation measurements are available plus the ability to automate the analyzer for production testing or other needs.  Triggering, Transfer functions and much more!SpDAQ-200

SpectraDAQ-200New! custom designed precision data acquisition sound card specifically developed for test and measurement applications.  it features fixed gain steps for easy calibration to your transducer sensitivity, IEPE power for accelerometers and microphones, and standard BNC connectors widely used in test environments. Exceptional dynamic range and extremely low distortion.
