Computer Drivers for use with GloMax Multi and Multi+ Instruments
USB Driver to connect the GloMax Multi and Multi+ Instruments to an external PC
When connecting the GloMax Multi or Multi+ instruments to an external PC for data transfer, or to operate the instruments via the PC, if the PC is installed with Window® 7 and is connected to the internet then the drivers are part of the standard Window’s updates and should be updated automatically. If you the PC has Windows XP or Vista it is necessary to manually download the driver.
If the computer is not connected to the internet, or you wish to manually download the latest drivers they can be found on the Future Technology Devices International Limited (FTDI) website
- Locate the “Currently Supported D2XX Driver table” from the FTDI link above.
- Locate the Windows® operating system details in the table.
- In the far right column select the “Setup Executable”, which will automatically install the appropriate drivers to the PC.
- The message “Found New Hardware” message will still launch when the instrument is plugged into a USB port for the first time, but Windows® should automatically use these latest drivers during the installation.
Tripp-Lite USB to RS-232 Serial Adaptor Driver
As an alternative to a USB cable, an RS-232 cable can be used to connect the instrument to a PC. With this method, PCs that do not have a built in RS-232 port will require a Serial to USB adapter. We recommend the Tripp-Lite USB to Serial Adapter (U209-000-R). The drivers for the adapter are included on the CD supplied with the adapter. Alternatively, the drivers for the adapter can also be found on the Tripp-Lite website.
