The laser’s user interface is very simple. All its functions are software-controlled via plain text commands over USB. The control and programming are thus completely platform and software independent and you can use any programming language that is able to send plain text via a virtual serial connection. This makes it extremely easy to integrate the DLnsec™ into existing software environments. We and our customers have already used many different languages like Python, Matlab, LabView as well as simple terminal emulators like PuTTY on different operating systems to control the DLnsec™. Even a usual smartphone can fully control the DLnsec™ if it supports USB-OTG.
