Clarity compatibility

A brief overview of the available combinations of Clarity Software x MS Windows versions x DataApex A/D converters.

Please read the two tables below before installing or upgrading to the new version of Clarity. The System compatibility table provides an overview of the compatibility between Clarity software, DataApex A / D converters, and Microsoft Windows. The Computer configuration table lists the hardware requirements for the computer. Both tables are available in a PDF file for your convenience.
