DATS Software - Noise & Vibration Analysis

DATS is a comprehensive package of data acquisition, signal processing and reporting tools. It is used mainly for noise and vibration analysis, but can be used for a wide range of engineering and general signal processing tasks. There DATS Toolbox provides the basic functionality and many analysis tools and there are a number of add-on options that address particular types of measurement and analysis. DATS has been continuously developed, refined and updated for over 35 years.

  • Data Capture
  • Noise and Vibration Analysis
  • General Signal & Statistical Analysis
  • 2D & 3D Viewing and Visualisation
  • Automation using Worksheet Programming
  • Automation with Scripts/Macros
  • Report preparation
  • Data import/export for other formats

Below are descriptions of the basic DATS Toolbox package and the different options that can be added for more specialised tasks.
