Version 5.0 of the OSCOR firmware has been designated as the OSCOR 5000 “E” (Enhanced) and brings significant updates including a high-speed USB port for PC connection, faster spectrum analyzer sweeping speed, a backlit display, and improved functionality.

The OPC 5.0 software combined with the USB port provides the ability to store and compare multiple Peak Traces from previous sweeps, adjacent rooms, and real-time OSCOR data. This high resolution data is easily manipulated for analysis.  


OPC 5.05.05 Prod. Release: 12/08/2009 - 14.7MB
