October 11, 2007 DSPCon has launched the DataFlex-500TM, a portable, high-speed data recorder designed for field-testing of jet engines, turbine pumps, combat vehicles and precision weapons systems. The unit, weighing less than 22 lbs., features real-time playback, display and analysis, and provides a sustained, continuous recording speed of up to 256,000 samples per second.

The DataFlex-500 has been specifically designed to provide rapid data recording, real-time analysis and archiving of up to 64 channels. DSPCon has designed the unit to be suited to field-testing by giving it a durable outer housing and keeping it fully transportable, at a size that can fit into standard aircraft overhead racks.
