The DiCon/ScopeLED USB command adapter software provides an easy interface between the ScopeLED HID (human Interface Device) illuminators and the lower level communication with windows. Once installed, it will check to see if the device is connected and recognized by windows and report back the model and serial number in a hyper terminal window. Commands sent via the USB communication port to the device will be interfaced to Windows OS through this program.
