PC Requirements

Minimum PC specifications for PolyScan4 and supported Mightex hardware:

  • Operating System: Windows 7 or later, 64-bit OS is required
  • Processor: 2.5GHz+, 4 Core or more recommended
  • RAM: 16GB+ or more recommended
  • USB Interface: USB3.1 Gen 1, Intel-based preferred
  • Disk space required depends on how many images are stored and what other software the customer needs to install. PolyScan4 software itself takes ~300MB currently. Solid State Drive (SSD) may be required for imaging saving at higher frame-rate
  • A PC monitor with 1080p or higher resolution is recommended

PC requirements may be revised as new software or hardware updates continue to be added. Other PC requirements may need to be met if the user are also using other 3rd party devices. Please check and confirm with the hardware suppliers. Some example additional PC requirements include but not limited to: spare PCI-E slot(s) of appropriate type(s), dedicated graphics card(s), or other requirements.
