Automation Interface

Attention: BAS V3.X comes with a completely new Automation Interface! 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 V3.X!

The new Automation Interface 3.X brings several advantages to you:

  • Compatibility with the new Bode 100 Hardware-Revision 2
  • Use the predefined measurement modes of Bode Analyzer Suite
  • Control more than one Bode 100 from one PC
  • Perform faster measurements (especially single-point measurements)
  • Use events to build real-time applications
  • Fully compatible with 32 bit and 64 bit Microsoft Windows systems
  • Directly access the Automation Interface from .NET
  • Access from multiple programming languages via COM

To learn more about the new Automation Interface 3.X, check out the Automation Interface reference at:
www.omicron-lab.com/BodeAutomationInterfaceHelp

In addition there is a LabVIEW® instrument driver available for download from www.ni.com.

***!!! Software on this page does not support the current Bode 100 Revision 2 device  !!!***

Important Notice

The Automation Interface has totally changed from BAS 2.43SR1 to BAS V3.X.

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

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

Important: This version is not compatible with the current Bode 100 Revision 2 hardware!

This page lists the evolution of the Bode Analyzer Suite from 2005 until today:

V3.20 (2018-10-30)

  • Nichols chart shows open-loop to closed-loop relationship
  • Stability margin calculation automatically shows gain margin, phase margin and crossover frequency
  • Receiver level indicators bigger and shown during calibration
