Note: Ophir provides this for legacy installations. For new development, we highly recommend working with our COM Object based package that can be found here.
Ophir LabVIEW VIs - Version 5.00.
"Ophinstr" is Ophir's library of LabVIEW VIs that gives a complete measurement interface with Ophir's Juno, Vega, Nova II and Single Channel LaserStar devices. Note: Juno support is for Thermopile and Photodiode sensors only.
The Ophinstr library was developed in LabVIEW 8.6.1.
REMINDER: To work with LabVIEW, NI-VISA 4.6.2 or higher (from National Instruments) must also be installed. See here for compatibility chart between versions of NI-VISA and LabVIEW.
When working with Windows XP
For all versions of Windows after XP, just install the package and it works. For working with this package on Windows XP, it is necessary to run the SwapINF utility that we provide and can be reached here.
The SwapINF utility configures Windows XP to associate the Ophir device with NI VISA’s USB driver when LabVIEW is selected. It configures Windows XP to associate the Ophir device with the appropriate Ophir USB drivers (windrvr6.sys) when StarLab is selected.
REMINDER: To work with LabVIEW, NI-VISA 4.6.2 or higher (from National Instruments) must also be installed.
Download and run SwapINF. Follow the on-screen instructions to configure the USB speaking device (Juno, Vega or Nova II) for LabVIEW or StarLab PC work as desired.
