LD Sound Level Meter Software Development Kit

The Larson Davis Software Development Kit (SDK) is a toolkit for developing custom applications in Microsoft Windows®, Debian Linux, and mobile platforms that includes example code and everything else you need to communicate with the SoundAdvisor™ Sound Level Meter Model 831C, Model 831 and Model 831-INT-ET Sound Level Meters, LxT Series Sound Level Meters, and the Human Vibration Meter Model HVM200.

SDK includes a documented http API and software components that allow the control and setup of Larson Davis Sound Level Meters – Model 831C, 831, LxT - using methods designed for compatibility with the internet. These methods enable Independent Software Vendors (ISV) to write software that will run on a wide variety of platforms. When working with a Human Vibration Meter, the SDK provides the documentation needed to use the http API that is built into the HVM200 and the associated libraries to access data stored in HVM200 data files.

The SDK allows you to easily utilize the internet by communicating to your sound level meter over a network using a tcp/ip socket. Software requests and instrument responses are both formatted using simple ASCII text for development ease and to make the resulting application highly portable. Requests made through the SDK are formatted like a URL and response data is formatted using standard JSON format. At the simplest level this allows interface to a meter using only a browser.
