Software for Touchscreen, Handheld, and USB-Interface Power Meters

This page contains software and drivers to remotely control the our Touchscreen (PM400 and PM200), Handheld (PM100D, PM100A, PM160, PM160T, and PM160T-HP), and USB-Interface (PM100USB and PM16 series) Power Meters. The software package features three applications:

  • Optical Power Meter Utility: A general application for one power meter connected to a PC via USB.
  • Multi Power Meter Utility: An application that allows up to 8 power meters to be controlled simultaneously when connected to a PC via USB.
  • Power Meter Monitor: An application that allows remote, wireless operation of the PM160, PM160T, or PM160T-HP via Bluetooth. This application can also be used to control our other power meters (excluding the PM320E) if they are connected via USB.
Instrument drivers, programming examples, and run-time engines for LabVIEW™ and NI-VISA are also included with the software download. Note that this software is not compatible with the PM320E Benchtop Power Meter, which uses a separate software package available here. The following packages are available:

  1. Software: Software with graphical user interfaces for operating Thorlabs' Power Meters (except PM320E), device drivers, and run-time engines.
  2. Firmware: Internal programs that control these instruments.
  3. Programming Reference: Power meter application notes for programming in LabVIEW, C++, C#, and Visual Basic.
  4. Archive: Previous release versions of the software.
