Apples and Oranges. Sensor Analysis fully-stacked is 33% more damage, no games. The console, on the other hand, stacks with all your other damage adds. The total value a given ship has will vary but it is usually around 400% when totaling all your bonuses. The consoles adds to that pile. 26% added to 400% is an increase of 6.5% in damage. Sensor Analysis fully-stacked is equal to about five consoles. The better your base build (i.e. the more damage bonuses you can eek out from various sources), the lower the benefit you get from an additional console, but SA is always consistently awesome.
