SignalCalc 900 Software Suite

The 900 Series Signal Analyzers and Vibration Controllers are driven by the SignalCalc 900 Software. The 900 Series Software Suite is a clean, unified application for all signal analysis and shaker control applications

Built on modern software technologies such as a relational SQL database and a 64 bit architecture, the 900 Series Software simplifies the process of acquiring/processing data and generating a report.  The well-planned user interface is simple to learn and the similarity between all data acquisition and vibration control applications minimizes the learning curve to get the most out of your 900 Series hardware.

Just Released: SignalCalc Version 2.0 Software

Feature-rich software packed with the latest advancements and enhancements

Data Physics is pleased to announce the release of Version 2.0 software for the SignalCalc 900 Series Signal Analyzers and Controllers. This version features the latest generation of Kurtosis in Random Vibration Control, and Multi-Shaker (MIMO) Classical Shock Control, as well as numerous new features and improvements — along with enhanced ease of use capabilities.

To access the full 2.0 release notes, please submit the form.

New Measurements in 2.0:

Multi-Shaker (MIMO) Classical Shock Control – Running classical shock pulses in a multi-shaker (MIMO) configuration is now supported by SignalCalc 900. This new measurement allows the optimal – and safe – control of classical shock pulses with multiple shakers. This allows testing in multiple axes simultaneously; or allows the use of multiple shakers in the same axis to achieve higher force output without sacrificing control or safety.

New Features and Enhancements in 2.0:

Non-Gaussian Kurtosis Control in Random Vibration Control (optional)
The ability to specify the desired kurtosis value for the control channel has been added to Random Vibration Control.

Compare Signals Feature (included with math channel option)
Users can designate measured or imported signals as Lower Limit or Upper Limit, and compare measured signals against them.

Synchronize Recorder Channels with the Primary Measurement Channels
Time history recording allows independent selection of channels from the primary measurement, but ‘Sync to channels table’ check box in the Recorder panel will automatically enable the same channels that are selected in the primary measurement. It also applies to multiple recorders.

64bit Environment
SignalCalc 900 now runs in a 64bit environment and requires a 64bit PC and operating system. This enables memory-intensive computations to be executed on the PC, such as those used in MIMO tests.

Programmatic Transfer of Data to External Applications
The programmatic transfer of time/frequency data (live or already-taken) from SignalCalc 900 is now possible. The data transfer uses SignalCalc 900’s existing REST interface, and allows the transferring of any measurement signal that is viewable in the SignalCalc 900 software to your own custom software application through the interface.

The existing functionality in the REST interface also allows full programmatic control of a test that is changing test parameters, starting/stopping, etc.

Auto-Grouping when Creating a New Plot with Many Signals
SignalCalc 900 can now intelligently group signals, when multi-selected and displayed at the same time. The Auto-group feature is now available in the Signal Selector when selecting multiple traces to be displayed at once.

Improved Report Image Quality
Image quality in reports has been improved. A “Rasterization” factor has been added, which can be used to increase the image resolution when exporting to PDF. To get the best results, the image “Over Sample” setting in the Quick Report selection should be set to 1, and Rasterization value (editable when exporting a report to PDF) should be set to a high number >1000.

Custom User Prompts for Run Notes
The ability to create custom Run Note prompts has been added to SignalCalc 900. Run Notes are prompts that are entered by the user before every Run (such as Serial# or Operator Name) and they can be placed in reports or on top of plots. Custom Run Note prompts are accessed in the Test setup tab of any test, by selecting “User Prompt” in the Run Note selection.

Complete Data Management for all your 900 Series Instruments

The 900 Series software’s data management system is built on an SQL database.  It stores your data in a searchable, relational database which can be used by multiple Computers and 900 Series instruments.

sine noise FlexBeam tests

Search, Sort, and Filter

Search or sort by any metadata entered during the test – searching for a sensor serial number returns all runs which used that sensor

Data Aggregation

Multiple PCs and 900 Series hardware units can share the same test database – automatically aggregating all data onto a single data server

Designed for Large Databases

The software is designed to handle hundreds of thousands of runs – focusing on recent data unless instructed to look through historic data as well

Easy Export

Export Tests or Runs to a file for sharing with non-networked PCs

Seamless Data Sharing

Any networked PC can run the SignalCalc 900 software and connect to the Database, review data, and generate reports

Attach Images or Digital Files to Tests or Runs

The 900 Series software’s Allows digital media such as images to be attached to a specific test or a run – eliminating the need to create a separate Windows file archive of photos and notes which parallel your test data

Take or Import a Photo

Take a Photo from a camera attached to the PC, or import from a file on your PC

Automatic Archiving in Database

Attached image is archived in the test database, along with the test setup or data

Include Images in Reports

Images can be automatically placed in reports – both standard and custom reports

Attach to a Project, Test, or Run

Images can be attached to a Project, Test, or Run and are inherited by all sub-tests or runs

Auto-Generate Custom Reports

Attach Word (*.docx) report templates to a test and it will be populated with the resulting test data/images /parameters – automatically creating multiple reports with custom formatting at the end of the test

SignalCalc 900 Attachments

Custom Reports in Your Format

Create Templates in Word

Create a report template in Microsoft Word and have SignalCalc 900 populate the report parameters, plots, and images automatically after each test (DP900-68)

Include formatted plots

Plots can be placed anywhere in a Custom Report – using a placeholder image and a metadata tag that tells the software which plot to replace the placeholder with.  The plots are dynamically resized based on the size of the placeholder image.

Place Test Parameters Anywhere

Test parameters and statuses such as Test Time or Control Level can be placed in the form of $variables anywhere in your Word template file.  

Include Attached Images

Images can be placed anywhere in a Custom Report Template in the same way as a Plot – with a placeholder sized the way you want it.

Generate Reports Anywhere

Generate Reports on the PC that conducted the test, or on any networked PC

Data Plotting and Review

The 900 Series software has a fully integrated 2D and 3D plotting system which allows you to customize plots the way you want to see them.

Custom Plots

Customize every aspect of your plots from scaling to units to fonts 

Tabbed Layouts and Multi-Monitor Support

Plot layouts are saved in Tabs (pages) which can be undocked and made full screen on secondary monitors

Data Overlay

Data from any test can be quickly overlaid with the Multi-Select function – both live during test or during data Review
