The Device tab serves mainly as a control panel for all settings
specific to the instrument that is controlled by LabOne in this
particular session. Whenever the tab is closed or an additional one of
the same type is needed, clicking the following icon will open a new
instance of the tab.
Table 1: App icon and short description
Provides instrument specific settings.
The Device tab (see Figure 1) is divided into five sections:
general instrument information, configuration, communication parameters,
device presets, and a device monitor.
The Information section provides details about the instrument
hardware and indicates the installed upgrade options. This is also the
place where new options can be added by entering the provided option
The Configuration section allows one to change the reference from
the internal clock to an external 10 / 100 MHz reference. The reference
is to be connected to the Clock Input on the instrument back panel. The
section also allows one to select the sample clock frequency
The Communication section offers access to the instruments TCP/IP
The Statistics section gives an overview on communication
Packet loss on command streaming over TCP or USB: command packets should
never be lost as it creates an invalid state.
The Device Monitor section is collapsed by default and generally
only needed for servicing. It displays vitality signals of some of the
instrument’s hardware components.
Revision of the device internal controller software.
USB firmware revision.
short names for each option

Upgrade Device Options
Display available upgrade options.
Reference Clock Source
Selects the reference clock source.
The internal 100MHz clock is used as the frequency and time base reference.
An external clock is intended to be used as the frequency and time base reference. Provide a clean and stable 10MHz or 100MHz reference to the appropriate back panel connector.
A ZSync clock is intended to be used as the frequency and time base reference.
Reference Clock Frequency
Indicates the frequency of the reference clock.
Reference Clock Status
Indicates the status of the reference clock. Green: locked. Yellow: the device is busy trying to lock onto the reference clock signal. Red: there was an error locking onto the reference clock signal. After an error the source is automatically switched back to internal reference clock.
Sample Clock Frequency
Indicates the frequency of the sample clock.
Sample Clock Status
Indicates the status of the sample clock. Green: locked on. Yellow: the device is busy trying to adjust the sample clock. Red: there was an error adjusting the sample clock.
Sample Clock Output Enable
Enable the sampleclock output.
Selects the source for synchronization of channels: internal (default) or external
Synchronization of all channels of a device that have the corresponding synchronization setting enabled.
Same as internal plus synchronization to other devices via ZSync.
Load Factory Default
Load the factory default settings.
Indicates that the device is busy with either loading, saving or erasing a preset.
Returns a 0 if the last preset operation was successfully completed or 1 if the last preset operation was illegal.
Last preset operation was successfully completed.
Last preset operation was illegal.
Turns red if the last operation was illegal.
Active interface between device and data server. In case multiple options are available, the priority as indicated on the left applies.
MAC address of the device. The MAC address is defined statically, cannot be changed and is unique for each device.
Current IP address of the device. This IP address is assigned dynamically by a DHCP server, defined statically, or is a fall-back IP address if the DHCP server could not be found (for point to point connections).
ON / OFF
Enable jumbo frames for this device and interface as default.
ON / OFF
Enable this flag if the device is used in a network with fixed IP assignment without a DHCP server.
Static IP address to be written to the device.
Static IP mask to be written to the device.
Static IP gateway
Click to program the specified IPv4 address, IPv4 Mask and Gateway to the device.
Number of buffers ready for receiving command packets from the device.
Number of buffers being processed for command packets. Small values indicate proper performance. For a TCP/IP interface, command packets are sent using the TCP protocol.
Number of command packets lost since device start. Command packets contain device settings that are sent to and received from the device.
Command streaming bandwidth usage on the physical network connection between device and data server.
Number of buffers ready for receiving data packets from the device.
Number of buffers being processed for data packets. Small values indicate proper performance. For a TCP/IP interface, data packets are sent using the UDP protocol.
Number of data packets lost since device start. Data packets contain measurement data.
Data streaming bandwidth usage on the physical network connection between device and data server.
