Albuquerque, N.Mex. ZTEC Instruments has improved its ZWave control software and drivers for its ZT530 C-Class function/arbitrary waveform generators. The ZWave soft front panel (SFP) application for the C-Class function generators is easier to use and operates like a traditional benchtop signal generator.
The ZWave is a class-level application and connects to and controls any ZT530 instrument. The new drivers that are part of the ZWave installer also provide class-level support. Users can change instrument platforms, if necessary, without re-writing any software. The new drivers provide hooks into key programming environments such as C, LabVIEW, LabWindows/CVI, COM, Visual Studio and others.
The ZWave operates on Windows Vista and Linux 2.6.x in addition to the original support for Windows 2000 and Windows XP. The ZFind utility, which enables users to identify what ZTEC instruments are installed on the current host, is also included as part of the ZWave application and driver installer.
Availability: The ZWave and instrument drivers are available for free, and can be downloaded at www.ztecinstruments.com/download-software.
