PULSE Reflex software for LabShop users

PULSE LabShop users have free access to equivalent features in PULSE Reflex Core, our next generation real-time measurement, recording and post-processing software, allowing you to do real-time analysis and post-processing with only one license. You can even liberate the PULSE Reflex Core functionality from the PC running LabShop and run it on a different PC, which in effect gives you an independent, real-time system AND a post-processing and reporting system.

Free access to LabShop-equivalent functionality in PULSE Reflex Core – Like-for-Like

Free access to LabShop-equivalent functionality in PULSE Reflex Core – Like-for-Like

With a PULSE LabShop license, you get access a range of PULSE Reflex capabilities. We call this Like-for-Like because, wherever possible, the corresponding PULSE Reflex Core functionality is included with your PULSE LabShop software Types 7700, 7770, 7771 or 7702.

In simple terms, if you can perform an FFT calculation in LabShop, you can perform a similar calculation in PULSE Reflex. The Reflex software is already available in your software package. All you need to do is to install it.

Liberate your LabShop license to PULSE Reflex Core

Liberate your LabShop license to PULSE Reflex Core

When using PULSE Reflex functionality available in the Like-for-Like-programme, you run both LabShop real-time analysis and the Reflex post-processing functionality on the same computer.

To help you use your PULSE LabShop data acquisition system more efficiently, we offer you the option of processing your time data recordings, and viewing and reporting results on a different computer by liberating your PULSE Reflex functionality from your PULSE LabShop system. Liberating allows re-hosting of the full PULSE Reflex functionality to another PC/Host ID.

You can only liberate the PULSE Reflex Like-for-Like functionality once. However, after the Reflex licenses are liberated, the original Like-for-Like functionality is still included with the LabShop licenses, so in a sense you really end up with two Reflex capable systems.

Extra functionality

Liberating your PULSE Reflex Like-for-Like functionality from your PULSE LabShop system gives you access to additional functionality available in the standard Reflex licenses.

  • There is additional functionality in Reflex that is not accessible with your LabShop license
  • Currently, not all Reflex functionality available in Like-for-Like is available for liberation. Some capabilities such as the Reflex Standard and Structural Measurements can only be used with your existing LabShop licenses
