ANT+ Toolkit – Full Version
The ToolkitThe ANT+ Toolkit for LabVIEW contains everything you need to communicate with an ANT device and to create your own device profiles, all in accordance with the ANT+ Communication protocol.
The Toolkit is effectively 2 parts, the first used to configure the ANT antenna and the second used to communicate with your device.
ControlThe first part is a direct implementation of the ANT Message Protocol and Usage document. This means that you are able to fully control the configuration of your ANT antenna (e.g. the ANTUSB-m), customising things such as transmission power and frequency.
For a more detailed description of the possibilities, see here.
CommunicateThe second part contains implementations of the specific device profiles, meaning that the data sent and received by the device can be encoded and decoded as required. For a list of the profiles currently implemented, please see here.
There is also the possibility to create your own profiles based on your specific needs, such as for use with the nRF51 Development Kit (from Nordic Semiconductor) to enable the capture of data from a variety of external sensors. For other examples see below.
