Product details

Dayton Audio DATS V3 Computer Based Audio Component Test System

 

When designing the DATS V3 measurement device, Dayton Audio took everything customers love about the DATS V2 and improved upon the accuracy, capability, reliability, convenience, and flexibility.

 

Any engineer knows that valid and accurate data is crucial to great results. DATS (Dayton Audio Test System) V3 is the essential tool in any speaker designer's or audio engineer's toolbox, providing accurate, precise measurement data for any audio transducer or loudspeaker system. Save yourself time, money, and trial-and-error frustration by using DATS V3 to measure loudspeaker drivers, crossover networks, and complete audio systems!

 

DATS V3 is a unique, multipurpose test system that works with your PC and full-featured test software to measure the impedance response of a speaker driver and derive a complete set of Thiele/Small parameters that describe its operation. It's as easy as connecting a driver and starting the test! The DATS V3 measurement module provides the electrical stimulus to the driver, measures the driver's impedance on the fly, and then creates a high-resolution graph (30,000 data points!) with no additional hardware required.

 

Possible applications for the DATS V3:

  • T/S Parameter Measurement
  • Enclosure Tuning Verification
  • Verify Crossover Wiring and Performance
  • Accurate Inductor Measurement
  • Accurate Capacitor Measurement
  • Accurate Resistor Measurement

 

DATS V3 provides the following unique advantages:

  • Rugged aluminum housing with detachable test leads and built-in precision calibration resistor 
    • Tighter tolerances on internal components for more precise measurements 
    • Linearity test allows you to easily observe shifting parameters with different drive levels 
    • Increased output capability for greater separation from the noise floor for more accurate measurements
    • Optional under desk mounting brackets to save desk space
    • Ultra-linear impedance response measurement for loudspeaker drivers and complete systems
    • Accurate measurement of loudspeaker electromechanical parameters (Fs, Qts, Vas, and many more)
    • Measurement of advanced Wright Model parameters (Kr, Xr, Ki, Xi) for precision simulations
    • Precise, high-resolution impedance response measurements with 30,000 data points (1 Hz to 20,000 Hz)
    • Save and compare up to 20 impedance graphs simultaneously within one test file
    • Integrated quality control feature set provides pass/fail parameter measurement (QC Pack)
    • Sensitive rub and buzz detection functionality reveals hidden flaws in individual drivers (QC Pack)
    • Software signal generator with selectable waveform, frequency, and amplitude
    • Generates sine, square, triangle, saw tooth, impulse, pink noise, and log sweeps
    • Oscilloscope software mode with dual traces, plus adjustable time and amplitude scales
    • Oscilloscope and generator modes are compatible with other audio interfaces
    • Quality test interface hardware assembled using precision SMT components and automation
    • High-quality alligator clip leads minimize contact resistance for improved consistency
    • Includes method for calculating Vas from specified Mmd
    • Faster-than-ever hardware startup time virtually eliminates warm-up/cool-down

 

What's better about Version 3?

From the outside, the DATS V3 has a completely updated look and feel. The extruded aluminum housing makes DATS V3 durable enough to throw into a toolbox without worrying about damage. In addition, optional mounting brackets give you the option to mount the DATS V3 under a desk or test bench to save space. No more searching for a calibration resistor, it is now integrated into the case, just clip the test leads onto the pins on the front of the housing and run the calibration. Also, the test leads have been upgraded to removable insulated banana plug test leads, giving you the ability to use your favorite test leads and easily replace damaged test leads (test leads are included). Finally, we have added a USB-B jack rather than an integrated USB cable (USB A to B cable included). This allows the cable to be quickly swapped if there is any damage, or if a different length is preferred.

 

The improvements continue on to the inside of the DATS V3. The internals have been completely redesigned and improved to deliver better accuracy and more power. With increased output power, the DATS V3 allows you to take measurements at a higher level to minimize the possibility that noise or vibration affects results. Dayton Audio has also upgraded many of the internal components with tighter tolerances to minimize the margin of error that is caused by a component's value variance. Even the calibration resistor has been upgraded to 0.1% tolerance.

 

DATS V3 software is the true power of DATS. The included software not only measures impedance and parameters of speaker drivers with incredible accuracy, but the addition of the DATS Linearity Test gives you the ability to observe changes in parameters with differing drive levels. The Linearity Test automatically performs multiple sweeps of the driver at increasing (or decreasing) levels while saving each test result to memory making it easy to recall and compare the results. As always, the DATS V3 still has the capability to measure the true value of inductors, capacitors, and resistors, and it also works as a signal generator and scope to let you monitor small electrical signals (line-level only). Even more updates are planned to further set DATS V3 apart from the competition.

 

A solution like no other!

DATS V3 is faster, more elegant, more versatile, and easier to use than any other speaker test & measurement device. Get ready for your designs to make a quantum leap, thanks to better data!

DATS V3 dimensions: 1" H x 2-1/2" W x 4-1/8" D

    A must-have tool if you are building speakers. Besides measuring impedance and phase of speakers, it can also reliably measure inductors and capacitors, so its really nice to have. Simply love this little thing! It can even do basic oscilloscope functions, but I've never tested it since I already have one. You can also take impedance fingerprint of the whole speaker and compare it to the second speaker- easily catch errors in your schematics.

    Very impressive. Software installed with no problems and I was able to measure a driver at first try.

    Have done some manual measuring of T/S-parameters using freq gen and a DVM/osc.
    Much easier this way! Have some unknown but high quality drivers that now could be used in a correct box. The software could improve a little once you starts to play with different parameters. It doesn't always update the freq resp etc when a param is changed. May be user error? Really handy to click save and then have the basic param saved to a file.

    The quest goes on about the value of all T/S parameters! After more than 40 years of designing speakers, I am one of them hanging out this question.
    But it is sure great to measure easy and fast! Also to have the real numbers confirmed in mind!
    A great tool!

    This product was even easier to use then I expected. It is a true plug and play device, but still very accurate.

    I used this product to measure the impedance of my tweeter and woofer. This information in combination with the frequency measurements from the UMIK-1 made it possible for me to design a passive filter for my project, which sounds very good now! I recommend this product to everyone who needs to measure their speakers accurately.
