Odyssey and its sucessor GEN5i: a comparison

In the nineties, Odyssey set standards as the first Windows-compatible data logger recording to hard disk. GEN5i, the portable test laboratory from HBM Genesis HighSpeed (formerly LDS Nicolet*), follows in the footsteps of Odyssey. As a follow-up product GEN5i offers all the advantages of Odyssey and convinces with many technological innovations.

Benefit from substantially increased performance when upgrading from Odyssey to GEN5i - a veritable quantum leap. GEN5i integrates a high-end PC and a modern data acquisition (DAQ) and transient recorder system in one, portable device. Unprecedented performance combined with high ease of use - GEN5i is the ideal successor to your Odyssey.
