How do I get started?
DSA includes a quick-start guide as part of the user manual, accessible from the Help menu in DSA.
Can I install DSA on multiple computers?
DSA can be installed either as a single computer license, or with a dongle option. Read more about the dongle option here.
How do I do a sensor calibration?
While there is no automated calibration routine, the process consists of a few easy steps. Watch the support video here.
How can I display overlays of results from different data files?
You can utilize the feature exporter to create spectra and order extractions from multiple files that can be overlaid and exported to a text file.
What is the maximum number of dynamic channels I can use?
Currently, DSA 2.9 supports up to 32 dynamic channels. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have larger channel count needs.
Can I use an old NI dynamic acquisition device (PXI-4472) with a new device (PXI-4492)?
The synchronization mechanisms between the older and newer devices are fundamentally different. Therefore you cannot combine the two device types in DSA. Please refer to the white paper here.
What if I have an older version of DSA?
If you have a previous version of DSA (version 2.8), please contact us for information on a no-cost upgrade to DSA 2.9.
