For different types of interfaces the V&F Analyzers can be equipped with the following optional pieces of software that have to be licensed:
V&F Analyzers can work as multiplexers in an AK environment also. With this feature a host computer can control additional controllers like sample switching systems via one single line. The V&F Analyzer in this case works like a multiplexer.
V&F Connect is a program that runs on an external PC and offers other programs a standard interface to control the V&F Analyzer. Your program interacts with the server by calling functions or checking properties of the communication objects which are provided by V&F Connect, which handles all the communication details for you in the background.
V&F Sensor Interface
The V&F Sensor Interface has been designed to embed the V&F Analyzers in very fast automation processes. The sensor interface includes a serial interface and a digital input. To start a measurement sequence the digital input is used. This allows an exact synchronization of a measurement cycle of the analyzer with the surrounding process.
V&F DDE Server
The task of the DDE Server is to convert the DDE commands of any DDE Client program to .net commands and on the other way to translate back the results from the V&F Server program to DDE values.
The communication between the DDE Client and the DDE Server is based on the Microsoft DDE standard, the communication between the DDE Server and the V&F Server software takes place over the .net standards.
