Product details

Dayton Audio DATS V3 Computer Based Audio Component Test System

 

The DATS V3 is the latest version of the audio test system from Dayton Audio. The computer based test and measurement system is easy to use and has many features to acquire the right data of your loudspeaker system.

 

The electroacoustic parameters of a speaker system are very valuable when achieving your design goals. The DATS helps you to measure speaker impedance and acquire the parameters in a quick and easy manner. Besides measuring loudspeaker parameters, the DATS is perfect for measuring the exact values of passive components like resistors, capacitors and inductors. You can even use the DATS to analyse complete (cabinet, crossover and drivers) loudspeaker systems.

 

Besides analyzing loudspeaker components and complete loudspeakers systems, the DATS can also be used as signal generator and oscilloscope for small signal analysis. Software features like ‘Rub and Buzz Test’ reveal flaws and can help you with quality control in your workshop.

 

What’s in the box?

FAQ

Q: Where can I find the calibration resistor?

A: The calibration resistor can be accessed through the binding posts next to test lead inputs at the front of the device.

 

Q: What are the system requirements?

A: The minimum system requirements are a Windows PC with 64MB RAM, 500 MHz Pentium III processor, MS Windows Vista, 7, 8, or 10. A USB 1.1 port.

 

Q: Is the DATS V3 compatible with Apple OS X?

A: The DATS V3 software is only available for Microsoft windows. The Audiomatica CLIO pocket is a great alternative that is compatible with Apple OS X.

 

Q: My measurement has many ripples, dips and peaks. I am sure the device under test is fine, what can I do?

A: For accurate measurements, please make sure both Windows and the DATS software use the DATS as in- /output device. You can access these settings through the Windows audio settings and in the DATS software from 'Audio Device Settings’ in the 'Edit' menu. 

 

Q: Can I use the DATS for frequency response measurements?

A: The DATS V3 is an electrical signal analyzer and has no microphone feature. You cannot use the DATS for frequency response measurements. The miniDSP UMIK-1 is a measurement microphone that can be used for frequency response measurements. The Audiomatica CLIO Pocket 2.1 combines features for both acoustic and electrical signal measurements into one package.

    Dit is het eerste goede meet apparaat dat op eenvoudige manier luidspreker parameters meet en L.S.P. componenten test.
    tevens een goede hulp bij storing's analyse L.S.P. systemen

    Das System ist super einfach zu installieren und zu bedienen. Es liefert zuverlässige Messwerte und Daten. Für Menschen mit geringeren Englischkenntnissen wäre sicher eine deutsche Bedienungsanleitung hilfreich.

    I think it is a great product and nice, that you f.ex can measure Thiele-Small parameters very easy. The bouild quality is excellent ant I expect this unit to last for many years. On my test speakerbox, I found the the definition of speaker resonance and bass reflex tuning a little diffuse, but I will try with another box- and tuning.

    Gutes Messgerät, um Lautsprecherimpedanzgänge zu überprüfen. Die Software ist nicht allzu bedienerfreundlich, ermöglicht aber alle notwendigen Funktionen.

    Gut verarbeitet.

    Wurde schnell versendet und der Endpreis ist hier niedriger, als wenn man es privat aus den USA importiert.

    DATS v3 is brilliant. If i could make one suggestion it would be: please update DATS Quick Start.pdf to reflect on the fact that the 1K precision resistor is now integrated in the DATS v3 unit.. I spent several minutes searching for the resistor thinking i had lost it somewhere.

    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.

    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.
