    What are the advantages of APM21 Pro vs Light?

    We have added a number of new features to AKTAKOM Power Manager 21 Pro, trying to keep it simple and easy to use.

    Template management

    AKTAKOM laboratory power supplies can supply current with arbitrary parameters precisely set by the user, but in practice a number of parameters with fixed values are most often used - 1.5 Volts, 3.3, 9, 12 ... In APM21 Pro, you can make a list of your "favorite" values in advance voltage and current and then set them to the device with one click.

    Command list management

    Another important property of our power supplies is the ability to dynamically change the current output parameters. APM21 Pro can do this automatically. Set a list of commands to the device in advance, specifying the necessary parameters and time, save the list to a file and run it for automatic execution when you need it.

    Customizable user interface

    In addition to additional ways to control the device, the main window of the program also has a graph displaying the history of measurements received from the device. All this may seem redundant and cluttering for someone who plans to use the source for simple standard tasks. In this case, you can customize the user interface in a way that is convenient for you: hide and collapse all the blocks you don’t need with special buttons and leave only the ones you need.

    Saving data

    If your lab's power supply is used for research, you may need to review instrument operation later. Therefore, we saved the history of events (displayed in the Protocol window) and measurement data (displayed on the graph in the main window) to a file.


    Up

    We have the SDK downloaded, but the .dll files are not in the SDK that are needed for controlling through vb.net. How do you obtain those files? On the website it says the .dll files come with the SDK package

    File .dll for APS-3xxx series power supplies has the name APS3310L.dll. The .dll file is initially located in the installer archive and when installing the SDK it is installed not in the SDK folder, but in the Windows system folder, usually it is C:\Windows\System32 or C:\Windows\SysWOW64.

    Where to fiind APS3310L.dll file

    Can I using Aktakom Data Logger Monitor (ADLM-W) software load all of the information from the memory card to plot a graph?

    The environment meter records data to the memory card in *.xls format. All of the data can be copied to the PC after the measurement process.

    Aktakom Data Logger Monitor (ADLM-W) software can be used for the measurement data transmission (using Aktakom ACE-1025 interface converter) that means for online monitoring only.

    How can I change the temperature unit?

    The programm displays the temperature in those units set in the device. The device settings procedure can be checked in the User Manual. As usual the settings can be changed as follows (we take Aktakom ATE-5035BT humidity/temperature meter as an example):

    • Before changing the measurement unit you need to deactivate 2 functions: “Hold of the current value” and “Max/Min value”.
    • Keep “SET” button pressed for minimum 2 sec. until you see “Code” symbol at the bottom of the LCD.
    • Release “SET” button, you will see “1000” displayed at the top.
    • After you see both “Code” and “1000” symbols press “ENTER” to activate the function of the measurement unit change. “ESC” button will return the device to the standard measurement mode.
    • Using “SET” button set “°F”. Then press “FUNCTION” button to change the measurement unit. If you see “0” displayed at the top after you pressed “FUNCTION” the measurement unit will be “°C”. If after pressing “FUNCTION” there is “1” symbol displayed that means the measurement unit will be “°F”.
    • After you set the required measurement unit press “ENTER” in order to confirm and save the setting. “ESC” button will return the device to the initial state.

    Is it possible to operate several software copies of AM-1038 set simultaneously and independently on one PC?

    Yes, it’s possible!

    AM-1038 software recognizes the device connection port automatically. If you connect several devices to different USB-ports of one PC (activating PC-Link mode on each of them by keeping HOLD button pressed), run a respective number of the Software copies and press START button one by one in each Software you will see an independent data collection of the appropriate device.

    The below screenshot demonstrates the example of simultaneous operation of 2 devices (one of them is in “µA” mode, the other one – in “mV” mode)
