Newport Corporation, a worldwide leader in laser and photonic solutions that Make, Manage and Measure Light®, introduces NSTRUCT, an enhanced instrument management software platform created to simplify installation and to provide  quicker and simpler instrument and experiment setup and use. Flexible and scalable, the instrument manager is designed with a set of features that create an effective single point control for all the users’ instrument needs. The NSTRUCT advanced communication layer provides a stable operating environment, even when using a multitude of instruments in both Windows 7 and XP.

The NSTRUCT framework permits easy access to all relevant instrument parameters in one central location.  For added convenience, remote operation is possible over LAN.  NSTRUCT instrument manager was designed with the customer needs in mind, and was made compatible with National Instruments’ LabVIEW, Microsoft C#.NET, and Python, making it a highly customizable instrument management environment. Newport introduces a new suite of instrument and experiment-oriented software utilities called ‘Applets’ that can be conveniently downloaded from the company website alongside the main NSTRUCT platform.

For more information about Newport’s new Instrument Manager Software platform and the current list of integrated instruments which are compatible with NSTRUCT, please visit us at SPIE’s Photonics West 2011, booth #1301, The Moscone Convention Center, San Francisco, CA, January 25-27. 2011.  Please note, additional applets will be added throughout 2011.
