Data Acquisition

Portable Data Acquisition and Analysis Recorder

The ObserVR1000 does not require special boards, PC drivers, or even a PC. Ready to get started? Simply connect a handheld device or PC to set up the ObserVR1000. Once set up, data can be collected with a simple press of the record button. Stream all the inputs and outputs to the SD card while running other test modes, or use independently as a field data recorder.

Software Features

Intuitive. Flexible. Powerful. ObserVIEW is Vibration Research's software that is used in conjunction with the ObserVR1000 analyzer. It runs on all current versions of Microsoft® Windows.

RecorderVIEW (standard)
Record your field acceleration measurements directly to the on-board SD memory.


Transient Capture (standard)
Capture a transient waveform for post processing. Use alone for data acquisition, or with SRS for Shock Response spectrum analysis.


Analyzer (standard)

Advanced Analyzer (optional)
All of the above plus: Cross Spectrum, Transfer Function, Coherence


Shock Response Spectrum (SRS) (optional)
Perform Shock Response Spectrum analysis:

  • SRS Pseudo Velocity
  • SRS Acceleration Plots
  • Acceleration for primary(+), primary(-), or Maxi-Max. Graphs can be easily auto-scaled, or zoomed, and cursor displayed.
  • Data and text annotations can be easily placed on the graphs, with data values updated live as the data changes

Fatigue Damage Spectrum (FDS) (optional)
Measure your product environment, characterize the severity, and generate a test profile accelerate to represent a lifetime of fatigue in a lab run test.
