Perception data acquisition software

Perception: Professional software for high-speed measurement data acquisition

Do you want to acquire measurement data with maximum sampling rates? Place your trust in products from HBM's Genesis HighSpeed series - and in Perception software.

Perception offers more than standard data acquisition software. Perception is designed for fast and reliable processing of huge amounts of data and is therefore ideal for high-speed data acquisition: Thanks to patented StatStream technology Perception enables 10 gigabytes of data to be visualized on your PC in 10 seconds. For your measurement, this means: No waiting time - virtually "live" data feeds keep you up to date about the status of your measurement data acquisition. You can access saved data even during running measurements and zoom in on these data. Recording continues in the background.

Perception, the professional software package for high-speed data acquisition handles all your measurement tasks:

  • Parameterization of sensors and control of measuring instruments
  • Real-time display of measured values
  • Storage and playback
  • Analysis and report generation

Perception-specific features enable rapid setup times, quick familiarization and therefore the immediate start of your measurements.

Good reasons to use Perception

Switch on and start measuring: Using Perception does not require any programming. Perception is immediately ready for use as soon as the hardware is connected.

The user interface is intuitive and easy to use. In addition, Perception automatically recognizes which hardware is connected and offers only those functions and options that are necessary and possible for the connected configuration.

  • Adapt Perception to ideally fit your application - choose the control elements you want to display.
  • Error-free: Perception shows the settings that are possible in drop-down lists - invalid options are automatically corrected.
  • Reliable: Every crash in the test laboratory costs time and money. This is why every Perception version undergoes thorough quality testing - for highest standards in stability and reliability.

Incidentally: Updating to new versions is very easy. You just install the latest software updates on your PC - the corresponding firmware modules for your Genesis HighSpeed hardware will be automatically installed. When you first start up the hardware after a software update, the hardware will be updated.

Candid data sheets: We keep our promises.

Precision in series: This also applies to the accuracy of the values specified in our data sheets. Ideal conditions can often be theoretically attained based on the values given, but our data sheets focus on realistic standard assumptions - such as those likely to be encountered in your application. Therefore, please consider this when comparing our data sheets with those of other manufacturers.
