Hi folks,


last year, i started an open source project, which aims to be a didactic lab software in the

style of cassy-lab (don't know, how the pasco-software is named) but with

the using philosophy of labwindows/cvi.


example files are in the "examples" directory of the github repository, they make a good overview, how

the software is used.


Toolkit is QT (PySide)


this is the github page:



this is the documentation so far

(without the api reference, but it builds locally, if you clone the repository, go to the "doc"-directory and "make html")




The state is incomplete but usable. A plotter, a stopwatch and several displays are already written, also a

driver for a lm335 thermometer, light-barriers and general rotary motion sensors, based on light-barriers.

The sources are very well documented.


I also started to write a tutorial, but the whole project stalled, because - and this is the reason, i hope somebody

want's to use it or parts of it - me and my girlfriend are expecting addition to the family.

I simply don't have time anymore to maintain and develop a project of this size in my spare time.


In fact, I wanted at least to complete the tutorial, but I can't find time for it, so I hope someone can find at least parts of it useful.

This project was started by me, because I missed a software like this and I can't image I'm the only one.

Thank you for posting this for others. To clarify how this is related to LabJack, a U3-HV is used as described in the documentation.
