Gantner Instruments GmbH, Montafonerstr. 4, A-6780 Schruns, Austria

Simplify your measurement tasks


New measurement tasks often come with new measurement hardware and software, and the time for commissioning the new hardware often needs to be considered during project planning.

We offer our users specialized and individualized assistance to support them with their tasks. Through these targeted measures, we accelerate the implementation of our products and help our customers achieve useful utilization and analysis for the highest possible quality in measurement results. 

We have summarized over 20 years of test and measurement experience into compact, easy-to-follow courses.

First, general points about the hardware are explained to you to get a general understanding of how the GI hardware works.
Next, you are introduced to GI.bench, its environment, and setting options. Throughout the training, you create channels, sampling rates, and data loggers and configure them step by step, deepening the acquired knowledge. The numerous visualization capabilities covered with the GI Dashboard are exceptionally illuminating.

The course is divided into several compact theory blocks. It is rounded off with numerous practical exercises to implement what you are trying to learn directly, ensuring a steep but sustainable learning curve.
