With the choice of data acquisition unit now independent of the software used, the release of LAN-XI Open API (Application Protocol Interface) gives users more flexibility via a platform-independent interface for programming LAN-XI data acquisition hardware from your own (or third party) software.
System integrators, test houses, universities, and engineers from a broad spectrum of industries and applications, including product testing, now have the freedom to use LAN-XI hardware with both Brüel & Kjær and non-Brüel & Kjær software platforms.
Product Manager Mike Turner says, “LAN-XI hardware is well-known for its quality, scalability, and accuracy, making it perfect for demanding customers who write their own software, use a third-party software solution, or simply wish to add additional SW applications on top of their BK Connect® or PULSE™ software. LAN-XI Open API now offers these customers the much-needed and long-awaited versatility and openness that they require.”
The API can be used, among other things, to write custom software to:
LAN-XI Open API is enabled via a single license, which can be installed on any existing LAN-XI module or purchased bundled with any Brüel & Kjær LAN-XI module. One API license is required per module.
The API does require programming skills to set up and use.
