PC System Requirements – AnalyzerPlus

PC system requirements for Pulsar’s AnalyzerPlus software

Last Updated – April 04, 2018

Pulsar Instruments™ AnalyzerPlus software (supplied as standard with the Pulsar Nova range of Sound Level Meters and our noise dosemeters) can run on most modern PCs. To get the best from the software your PC or laptop should meet the minimum specifications below, and where possible, also meet the recommended specifications.

Please note that Pulsar AnalyzerPlus is not compatible with the Apple Mac Operating system.

Please note that as of December 2018, AnalyzerPlus does not support Windows XP or Windows Vista.

Operating System

Please note that Microsoft ended support for Windows XP on the 8th April 2014. The minimum system requirements for AnalyzerPlus is Windows 7 SP1.

Please refer to the section regarding .NET Framework 4.0 for more information.

Minimum System Requirements

  • Windows 7 (x64)
  • CPU: 2GHz Dual Core
  • Memory: 3GB
  • Storage: 10GB free space
  • Display: 1280×800

Recommended System Specification

  • Windows 10 (x64)
  • CPU: 3GHz Dual Core
  • Memory: 4GB
  • Storage: 50GB free space
  • Display: 1280×1024

Ideal System Specification

  • Windows 10 (x64)
  • CPU: 3GHz Quad Core
  • Memory: 8GB
  • Storage: 100GB free SSD space
  • Display: 1920×1080
  • Dedicated sound card and external speakers

Storage requirements for AnalyzerPlus installation & measurement data

  • Approximately 1GB for installing AnalyzerPlus and dependencies
  • Up to 512MB for temporary files during measurement download
  • 1GB per instrument per year for measurements and time history data, assuming typical usage

Where an instrument is storing and downloading audio recordings, additional storage space will be required. The amount of storage will depend upon the length of recordings and the audio quality chosen. Audio recordings require the following amounts of space:

  • Standard Quality     120MB/hr
  • Studio Quality        1.4GB/hr

Sound card for audio playback

Pulsar AnalyzerPlus can work with onboard sound cards and even internal laptop speakers.  However, for best results, a dedicated card and external speakers are required.

Some onboard sound cards will not be capable of playing the studio quality 96kHz audio. In these cases, an external sound card will be required.

In some cases internal speakers are sufficient, however to playback at realistic levels, such as when using the speaker calibration feature, good quality external speakers are required.

Graphics card

Pulsar AnalyzerPlus uses the latest technologies to draw the user interface directly using the graphics card. Most onboard graphics chips can provide more than enough power to display the basic user interface but the more advanced screens will be noticeably smoother on more powerful hardware.
