External Control Software for Variable Optical Attenuator

This PC program is used to provide external control of the Kingfisher KI 7010 Series Fiber Test Attenuator. As installed, it provides many useful functions. Since it is written in C using Labwindows, it is also easy for a programmer to modify, and the source code is in the download.

  • Remote sequencing and control from a PC
  • Ideal for automation of measurement sequences
  • Supports 3 sequences with varying times / increments
  • Auto-discovery of attached instrument
  • Progress indicator

System Requirements: National Instruments Labwindows / CVI Shared Runtime, Windows (tested on Windows 10) with RS232 or USB port. A USB - RS232 adaptor will be required if you cannot add an RS232 adpator to your computer.

Alternatively you can write your own external control commands: the command set is in the back of the instrument user manual.
