Whichever programming application you prefer (or are required) to write in, such as C#, Python, LabView or even MS Excel or …, you can control your XL2 and read measurement results every 100ms. The API shows you how to fire ASCII-format commands at the device via the COM interface. We provide demo applications to get you started.
The XL2 is, of course, a fully functional stand-alone device, designed to perform without being connected to a PC. In this case, the measurement is started on the XL2 or with a foot pedal. The XL2 screen then displays the broadband values and the spectrum of the measurement. Tolerance bands can be pre-defined in the device itself, and the XL2 marks the deviations, logs the results to its SD-card, and signals pass/fail on the built-in multi-colored LED.
Remote access to the XL2 from a PC requires that the “Remote Measurement Option” be installed on your XL2.
High-resolution FFT and 1/12 Octave data requires that the “Spectral Limits Option" be installed on your XL2.
