Get Up and Running Quickly!
The CTI-AR600 Software Library provides a "plug-and-play" software interface
to the Acuity Research AR600 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 NT/98/Me/2000 and XP and for Linux. You pick the system
that suits you best.
Available for Windows 2000 and XP, as well as Linux, the library
provides full support for all models of the AR600 sensor family, and
the full AR600 command set.
Dim rc As Long, numRead as Long, i as Long
Dim samples(1000) As Double
Dim mySensor As CTI_AR600 'Declare an AR600 sensor variable
Set mySensor = New CTI_AR600 'Create new instance of the AR600 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
