Information and Tips:
- Select the COM Port for your Cobolt laser
- Select Baud Rate: 115200
- The laser will connect in “not emitting” mode. Open the Device Property Browser to enable control of the laser.
- In order to control the laser with an external function generator, it is necessary to put the laser in “Modulation Mode” in the Device Property Browser.
Troubleshooting tip: If the program or computer disconnects unexpectedly, the laser will re-start in “not emitting” mode the next time that it is connected to any program (Micro-Manager, Cobolt Monitor GUI, LabView, etc.).
Troubleshooting tip: Cobolt lasers can only be connected to one program at a time. If you are unable to connect to Micro-Manager, check your system for any other programs which may be communicating with the laser (Cobolt Monitor, LabView, etc.)
