  Software Description
  Cobolt Monitor- Cobolt MonitorTM is a combined GUI for all Cobolt laser models. The GUI supports simultaneous connection and monitoring of multiple lasers, configured for either RS232 or USB2.0. The GUI automatically searches for new Cobolt lasers connected to the computer and presents them listed. We highly recommend that you upgrade to the newest version! In case you have an older Cobolt laser which does not connect to Cobolt Monitor, please contact your Cobolt distributor with your serial number and we will provide you with the correct software.
  USB Driver To connect to the laser via USB, the USB driver must be installed. When installed, a virtual COM port will be created to communicate with the laser. Followed are the instructions for installing the USB driver on Windows 7 / Windows XP and Windows 8
  Lab View To integrate the Cobolt lasers into Labview environment, please download “Lab View”.
