All-digital controls are provided, providing novel, low-vibration integrated fast scanning commands and built-in data recorder for mapping, optimization and characterization of devices and couplings both for input and output. High-speed Ethernet and USB interfaces, a high resolution analog input for optical metrology, and a wealth of software libraries for rapid application development help ensure rapid productivity and flexibility in usage. The powerful PIMikroMove graphical utility is provided for easy interactive control and visualization right out of the box, and programming examples in NI LabVIEW, Python, MATLAB and other popular programming environments are provided. Cross-platform support including Windows, macOS and Linux is amply documented for efficient development. The optional C-990.FA1 software provides fully automatic alignment of light-transmitting components. An optional F-712.PM1 optical power meter provides high-bandwidth, broad-dynamic range optical metrology over a broad spectral range.
