Get Up and Running Quickly!
The CTI-AR200 Software Library provides a "plug-and-play" software interface
to the Acuity Research AR200 laser distance sensor, so you can concentrate
on your application functionality
, rather than on hardware
interfacing or data collection details.
Install the software, then use Excel to acquire and
analyze sensor data immediately. No programming required!
Your Choice of Languages!
Develop in C, C++ or [on Windows] Visual Basic or Visual Basic for Applications.
The same features are supported by all languages - you make the choice!
Windows or Linux!
Available for Windows and Linux. You pick the system
that suits you best.
Available for Windows and Linux, the library
provides full support for all models of the AR200 sensor family, and
the full AR200 command set.
Dim rc As Long, numRead as Long, i as Long
Dim samples(1000) As Double
Dim mySensor As CTI_AR200 'Declare an AR200 sensor variable
Set mySensor = New CTI_AR200 'Create new instance of the AR200 sensor class
mySensor.setCommOpen("COM1", 9600) 'Set serial port and baud rate
mySensor.setSamplesPerSec(150) 'Set 150 samples per second
mySensor.setLaserOn() 'Turn on the laser
numRead = mySensor.getSamples(samples, 100) 'Read 100 range samples
For i = 1 To numRead
MsgBox "Sample" + Str(i) + " = " + Str(samples(i)), vbInformation
