Currently Available libec Techniques by Instrument Series

  • Important Notes for All Series
    • Hardware support is also required (must be listed under Setup > Technique...).
    • For technical reasons, support is added on a per-technique, per-series basis.
    • The libec SDK is essentially a wrapper around our standard Windows software, exposing selected functions of the latter to (say) LabVIEW.
    • Like our standard software, the libec SDK library is currently only available as a 32-bit build. At least NI doesn't charge you extra for 32-bit LabVIEW... We apologize for any inconvenience.
    • Thank you for your understanding and patience! The libec SDK is a work in progress.
