Newest Stable Version

Note: Bode Analyzer Suite V3.0 and V2.X cannot be installed at the same time on a PC! This also applies to the automation interface.

Name Description Version Date Size
Application Bode Analyzer Suite (Full installer 32 bit & 64 bit) V3.0 2017/04/13 180 MB
Application Bode Analyzer Suite - 32 Bit (32 bit installer) V3.0 2017/04/13 111 MB

Application Bode Automation Interface (Automation interface only) V3.0 2017/04/13 95 MB

Note: New Automation Interface

The full version of the Bode Analyzer Suite contains the graphical user interface as well as the automation interface.

Attention: BAS V3.0 features a completely new Automation Interface! If you have developed an automated solution with a previous version of the Bode Analyzer Suite you will have to apply some changes if you want to use the BAS V3.0!

Bode Analyzer Suite 3.0 features a completely new Automation Interface 3.0 that brings several advantages to you:

  • Use the predefined measurement modes of Bode Analyzer Suite
  • Control more than one Bode 100 from one PC
  • Perform faster measurements (especially single-point measurements)
  • Use events to build real-time applications
  • Fully compatible with 32 bit and 64 bit Microsoft Windows systems
  • Directly access the Automation Interface from .NET
  • Access from multiple programming languages via COM

To learn more about the new Automation Interface 3.0, check out the Automation Interface reference at: 
www.omicron-lab.com/BodeAutomationInterfaceHelp


Legacy Versions (Old Software Versions)

Important Notice:

The Automation Interface has totally changed from BAS 2.43SR1 to BAS V3.X.

This version is an old legacy version of the BAS and is not recommended for new designs!

We do not recommend to download this old version except you really need the old Automation Interface structure!
