For Laureate Digital Panel Meters, Counters & Remote Displays
Laureate Setup & Calibration Software
IS3_5_4.exe (7.6 MB). This is a self-extracting executable file used to install Windows-based Instrument Setup Software for Laureate digital panel meters, scale meters, counters, timers, remote displays, transmitters. This software is an easier method to set up 1/8 DIN instruments than using front panel keys. It is required for transmitter setup. For Ethernet applications, it automatically discovers all Nodes on a LAN or WAN, plus any devices connected to each Server Node via an RS485 bus, like Node Manager software. To install, download this file into its own directory such as c:\temp. Double-click on the file to unzip it, then double-click on setup.exe to install.
serial5p.exe (2.1 MB). Zipped set of communication utilities to be used with Laureate instruments. Uses commands described in our serial communications manual to diagnose communications and retrieve information from meters.
calwin30.exe(5.7 MB). Calibration software used for Laureate signal conditioner boards and analog output boards. Also see our calibration page.
re_init.exe (46 KB). Initialization software which tells a Laureate digital panel meter, counter, timers, remote display or transmitter what type of instrument it is. Used as a master reset.
Laureate Ethernet & WiFi Software
NetworkSetup_1_00f.exe (500 kB). This is a self-extracting compressed file to install our Network Setup utility, which allows a Laureate LWIFI or LWIFIX board to work with a specific WiFi network. It requires that meter communications to be set up in a specific way and that the WiFi board be connected to the PC via a USB cable. It allows the user to enter the SSID and password of the WiFi network. It discovers the WiFi board's IP address, the COM port used for USB communications, the meter type, and the signal conditioner type. It also displays the latest meter reading.
NodeMgr1_1_7.exe (4.0 MB). This is the self-extracting compressed file used to install our Windows-based Node Manager Software, which runs on a host computer and is used to configure our Ethernet Nodes. It automatically discovers all Nodes on a LAN or WAN, plus any devices connected to each Server Node via an RS485 bus. It is used to configure each Node, such as setting communication parameters, naming the Node and associated devices, entering email addresses for alarm notification and data requests, selecting the Node's time zone for time-stamping of emails and streaming data, and upgrading firmware. Once configuration data has been stored in flash memory of all Nodes, Node Manager Software can be closed.
To install, download the file into its own directory such as c:\temp2. Double-click on the file to unzip it, then double-click on setup.exe to install. Please see our Ethernet Manual (2.6 MB) for additional information.
EtherLN1_4_1.txt (341 kB) is the latest revision of our Node Firmware, which resides in flash memory of our Ethernet Nodes. It is required for Node operation and includes a web server for Node discovery and setup. To see if a Node needs a firmware upgrade, open the Node with Node Manager Software and click on the Firmware Upgrade tab. Upgrade if the version on this web page is higher than the version currently in the Node. To upgrade, click on above link and save the text file in a directory such as C:\Program Files\NodeMgr\. Then follow the instructions under the Firmware Upgrade tab. Upgrading will not affect the data stored in the Node.
EtherLN1_1_5.txt (272 kB) is the latest revision of our Node Firmware to upgrade legacy Ethernet Nodes with firmware versions lower than EtherLN1_2_0.txt.
Laureate USB Driver
CDM_v2.10.00_WHQL_Certified.zip (4.5 MB). Contains the Windows drivers required for use of Laurel's USB interfaces, which use an FT232R USB UART chip by FTDI. Computers running Windows 7 or later may automatically download and install this driver from the Internet. If installation is not automatic, download the zipped file and unzip it into its own directory. Upon first use of the USB interface, you will be prompted for the location of the driver. Point to the unzip directory. Another download source is www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm For installation help, please see www.ftdichip.com/Support/Documents/InstallGuides.htm
Laureate Datalogging Software
XLog2.2.0.exe (3.4 MB). Creates a powerful data logging system when a PC with XLog2 dataloggging software is connected to a mix of Laureate meters, counters, timers and transmitters. The logged data can be written directly to disk in the form of text files or MS Excel files. It can also be displayed by the PC in the form of up to 64 simulated panel meters in up to 4 groups (or screens) of up to 16 meters each. The data connection can be via Ethernet, RS485, RS232 or USB. With an Ethernet connection, data can be logged over the Internet. To install at no charge, double-click on the exe file. Now compapatible with Windows 10.
log5_0_0.exe (5 MB). Legacy datalogging software (prior to August 2012) without Ethernet connectivity or direct data transfer into MS Excel. Only recommended for existing installations. To install at no charge, double-click on the exe file.
Laureate Custom Curve Linearizing Software
CustCurv60.exe (2 MB). This is the executable PC file to implement custom curve linearization for Laureate meters, counters and transmitters with an Extended ordering option. A meter or counter must have a serial communication board and and available COM port 1-4. Following linearization, the communication board may be removed. Place this executable file in the same directory that will also contain the linearization data files. This software is available at no charge. For more information, please see our custom curve linearization page.
