Original Press Release:

DSPCon Introduces DataFlex-515 Ultra-Portable, Battery-Powered Data Recorder with Standard Real-Time Analysis Software; Company Also Announces GSA Listing of DataFlex-1000/1000A Recorders

BRIDGEWATER, NJ, July 1, 2009 - DSPCon, Inc., a leading, global supplier of dynamic data acquisition, analysis, archiving and recording solutions for high-value military, aerospace and rotating machinery applications, today introduced the latest addition to its performance-proven line of data recorders, the DataFlex-515TM.

Effectively rounding out the Company's popular DataFlex family of real-time data recorders, the new DataFlex-515 weighs less than 20 lbs., features real-time playback, display and analysis, and provides a sustained, continuous recording speed of up to 256,000 samples per second. The system is compatible with a variety of common file formats, including DATX/CATS, UFF58, CSV, ATI and others, and features dual 500 Gbyte hard disk drives. Two "hot-swappable", dual-lithium-ion battery packs provide a total of 100 watts of output power and 190-watt-hours of capacity resulting in an impressive four hours of continuous operation in the field.

"DSPCon has had on ongoing commitment to listening closely to our Fortune 100 customers and directly servicing their needs with the right technology solutions for over a decade and a half," said Al Brower, president and chief executive officer of DSPCon, Inc. "We developed the DataFlex-515 to meet our customers' application requirements for a small, powerful recorder with excellent performance and battery-life while addressing their concerns that their technology purchase would be fully supported today, and in the future, by a company that's here to stay."

Positioned as a portable powerhouse for field-intensive applications, the new
DataFlex-515 features a flame-retardant design with fully integrated keyboard and 15-inch, anti-glare screen. Its ease of set-up in the field, along with its rugged outer housing, robust safety features, and extended battery life make it an ideal solution for data and video recording of seismic, flight line, in-flight, and factory floor applications. The DataFlex-515 joins the Company's DataFlex-1000(tm) and DataFlex-1000A(tm) recorders, both of which were recently added to the GSA price list, and the DataFlex-500(tm) to provide a full portfolio of new data acquisition solutions specifically designed to address growing marketplace concerns that older, competitive technology platforms will not be supported in the future by suppliers possibly exiting the global data recorder market.
