The Company

Prosig was founded in 1977 by members of the Institute of Sound & Vibration Research at Southampton University. The company’s goal was to provide customers with the best available hardware and software for noise and vibration measurement. The P8000 hardware and DATS software is used for mobile and laboratory noise & vibration measurement tasks and the PROTOR vibration condition monitoring provides long term condition monitoring for power stations and other large plant.

Our systems are designed using knowledge gained over 40 years of solving sound and vibration problems for the likes of NASA, Dow, RWE, Ford, Jaguar Land Rover, British Aerospace, GM, Siemens, EDF, Sharp, BMW and Airbus as well as F1 teams, air forces, power generators, universities and military organisations around the world.

In 2014 Prosig became part of Condition Monitoring Group (CMG) Limited. Together, Prosig & CMG have numerous product and technology synergies, which provide significant additional opportunities in terms of future product diversification.

Prosig needed tools with a high degree of precision and integrity to measure and analyse sound and vibration. Nothing we found was good enough; so we made our own.
