In case your IT security settings prevent downloading the full CD version you can alternatively download the 32 bit or the 64 bit full version.

Note: The Automation Interface structure has changed starting with BAS V2.40

To be prepared for upcoming new measurement functionalities and modes we had to adapt and modernize the software structure of the Bode 100 automation interface. To simplify the migration of software for our existing automation interface we have summarized the structural changes in the following document: 

Remark:

The Full Version of the Bode Analyzer Suite contains the Graphical user interface as well as the automation interface. The redistribution package contains the automation interface only and is recommended for the OEM use of the Bode 100.

Attention: The automation interface structure has been modernized starting with BAS V2.40, if you have developed an automated solution with a previous version of the Bode Analyzer Suite you will have to apply some changes if you want to use the BAS V2.40. Please refer to the Tab Automation Examples for further information.

Notes: System requirements

Legacy Version (Old Automation Interface)

Important Notice:

The Automation Interface structure has changed starting with BAS V2.40.

This version is an old legacy version of the BAS and is not recommended for new design!

We do not recommend to download this old version except you really need the old Automation Interface structure!
