Herzan Introduces The WaveCatcher Pro

(Nanowerk News) Herzan LLC announces the release of The WaveCatcher Pro – the first mobile site survey tool capable of measuring all vibration, acoustic and EMI noise levels with the push of a button. The WaveCatcher Pro is Herzan’s latest upgrade to the standard WaveCatcher, furthering the capabilities of what a site survey tool can achieve, while becoming a comprehensive, cost-effective site analysis tool.
The WaveCatcher Pro is a complete site analysis package, integrating a compact computer (with pre-loaded WaveCatcher software), analog-to-digital converter, triaxial vibration sensor, acoustic sensor, triaxial EMI sensor; all packaged in a compact, highly portable carrying case. The WaveCatcher Pro can be carried with one hand, set up in under five minutes, and operated with the push of a button. “Given the system’s ease of use, comprehensiveness and competitive price point, we expect the WaveCatcher Pro to be attractive to a wide range of users including scientific researchers, instrument makers, product testers, and facility managers,” said Herzan’s Founder Ann Scanlan, “It will be useful from the lab to the production floor”. Herzan’s new features for the WaveCatcher Pro help set it apart from competing systems.

New features of the WaveCatcher Pro include:
  • – Updated software functionality with Windows 7 compatibility
  • – Continuous measurement feature for all-day measurements
  • – Enhanced reporting and graph representation
  • – Updated triaxial vibration sensor (the VA-3)
  • – Triaxial EMI sensor measuring AC/DC fields
  • – Live zoom-in feature for enhanced analysis of data within a desired frequency bandwidth
  • The WaveCatcher Pro is in response to high demand for a complete solution requested by a myriad of research fields— Scanning Electron Microscopy, Transmission Electron Microscopy, Scanning Tunneling Microscopy, and may more. Customers have shared their positive experiences with the release of the standard WaveCatcher, however, one question remained: “When will a compact solution be available to measure all three environmental noise sources (acoustic, vibration and EMI noise)?” Herzan’s response is the WaveCatcher Pro, the ideal solution for full spectrum analysis in a compact format.
    Herzan’s commitment to the advancement of its site analysis tools and software affords customers the opportunity to receive lifetime software updates for their WaveCatcher Pro system. If a new software feature is developed and made available to new iterations of the WaveCatcher Pro, legacy customers will find comfort knowing they will receive the same software updates. Herzan finds this commitment to its customers of paramount importance and a gesture of appreciation for showing continued support for Herzan’s products and services.
