The AR Model VM7000 is a software utility which runs under the Windows NT, 2000 and XP operating systems and simultaneously controls and operates up to four FL7000, FP7000 or FH7000 series probes. The VM7000 provides a graphical user interface that allows effortless control of all probe functions, while clearly displaying probe data and status. The VM7000 must be installed on an IBM compatible PC and can control up to four probes through available RS-232 or USB (with USB to RS-232 adapter cable) ports using one port per probe.
The VM7000 Virtual Field Monitor interfaces with field probes through a fiber optic cable and a Model IF7000 or FI7000 fiber optic/RS-232 interface. Probes may be enabled on serial communications ports one through ten, depending on a computer's individual capabilities, which may be extended with the addition of an I/O card (not included). Both the fiber optic cable and the FI7000 are included in an FL7000 series probe kit. The IF7000 is available separately for use with FP7000 or FH7000 series probes.
