Autoscan Software Development Kit for Windows - Overview

Our ASDK software is a developers toolkit for people wishing to write their own software to control and operate a standard Autoscan stage.
The ASDK is used to control the Autoscan Systems EL300 2/3 axis stage controller via a communication port on a Windows 95/98/NT/2000/XP platform.
