  • Software Toolkit for PCI Digital Amplifiers

  • Easy Amplifier Setup and Tuning

  • Powerful System Diagnostics

  • Supports System-Level Optimization

  • Guided Field Software Upgrades


The InSight™ software toolkit from Performance Controls, Inc. (PCI) is an integrated collection of software tools that unlocks the full potential of PCI amplifiers. With a single software program users can quickly set up and tune amplifiers and access a range of diagnostic tools. When used with D-SERIES™ amplifiers, InSight™ provides powerful capability for optimizing performance during development and operation, reducing installation time, supporting field troubleshooting, and adding functionality in the field.


InSight™ is designed for use with the amplifiers below and with other PCI products. Not all InSight™ features are available with all amplifiers. Only D-SERIES™ amplifiers utilize all functions available with InSight.

  • D-SERIES™ digital gradient amplifiers
  • GA301 gradient amplifiers
