Data Analysis Tool (DAT) for PVA-1500/1000/600+

The Data Analysis Tool (DAT) is an Excel program that is recommended for validating results in the field, analyzing large PVA data sets, and for generating professional reports of your measurement results. For more info about the DAT go here...
Note: The DAT works best with MS Excel and Windows 10 or Windows 11 operating system fully updated. The source ("exported") data also needs to be local on the PC. If you get run-time errors, please update Windows, re-install MS Office, and install/repair vc_redist.x64.exe (see link below). Contact Solmetric Support for assistance.

Note: The PV Analyzer application and the Data Analysis Tool work best with Microsoft Windows 10 or Windows 11 with ALL recommended updates installed, including the latest Visual C++ Redistributable x86 and x64 updates from Microsoft. If you are seeing issues running the software, please confirm these updates are installed and run the 'repair' option for each. If they are missing, please install them via these links:

vc_redist.x86.exe - helps PVA application run smoothly
