The LinkControl adapter LCA-2 is equipped with a USB interface for connection to a PC or laptop.
With the LinkControl software, the ultrasonic sensors of the mic+-, mic-, vnp, pico+, lpc, lcs, ucs, crm+, hps+, dbk+4, dbk+5, esp-4, esf-1 series can be parameterised under Windows®.
The current measurement values of the ultrasonic sensors can be graphically visualised in the LinkControl software in the form of three different output graphics.
The LinkCopy function allows the download of parameters from the sensor to the LCA-2 and the subsequent upload of these parameters to a different sensor. This way, sensor settings can be conveniently copied from one sensor to the other.
Offline programming within LinkCopy
With some sensor series, the sensor settings copied to the LCA-2 can be directly indicated and edited via the digital display before being written back into a sensor.
For the LinkCopy function, the LinkControl adapter need not be connected to a PC. The LCA-2 reads the parameters out of the sensor and saves them internally to its EEPROM. The data are thus safely stored in the LinkControl adapter even after supply voltage disconnection and can consequently also be used as a sensor setting archive.
Via the integrated TeachBox, all ultrasonic sensors which are taught via pin 5 at the sensor plug (mic, pico+, lpc, lcs, esf-1) can be comfortably set. The Link-Control adapter LCA-2 is looped in between the sensor connection line and the sensor; a PC or laptop is not required. During the teach-in process via buttons T1 and T2, the length of the button stroke is indicated in seconds on the display.
