Compare Versions

TSG™ 8 represents a major overhaul of the TSG software package relative to previous version. One of the biggest changes is the number of versions now available. As of TSG 8 we only offer a single version of TSG. This simplifies everything for us and for you the user. Also, when you download the TSG executable, and register, it is already functioning in TSG-Viewer mode. In fact, if your timed licence expires the software will automatically revert back to the TSG-Viewer mode.

In recognition of a large number of users utilising hand-held spectrometers we have included access to all functionality that was previously restricted to the TSG-Core versions. To see what exciting new features are now included gratis check out our TSG-Pro upgrades. We want our hand-held users to get the most out of TSG 8 so with that in mind we have also included brand new features.

Do you love statistics? We do, so with that in mind and after feedback from our users we added a completely new statistics module.

Lastly, and in support of CSIRO’s own HyLogger we simplified the previous TSG-Core and TSG-HotCore versions and beefed up the new TSG 8 to include both TSG-Core and TSG-HotCore combined.

If you want to see a more in-depth look at the various changes/upgrades since TSG 7 then take a look at the what’s new in TSG page. There is a LOT and we think it’s worth the look.
