This new software allows Windows-based PCs to directly access all Delta RMC70- and RMC100-Series motion controllers, allowing the ability to read and write registers, and the ability to read bits and issue commands, all over a serial port or Ethernet access. It has a number of sample programs and multi-language support. It works well with data acquisition and testing applications, offering Virtual Instrument components for National Instruments' LabVIEW, a common product used with RMC motion controllers in NDT and cyclical testing applications. The software offers several interfaces to work with languages such as Visual C#, Visual Basic .NET, Visual J#, Visual C++, Visual Basic 5.0/6.0, Visual Basic for Applications and LabVIEW.
