Selecting Devices

Kipling provides an intuitive way to connect and control multiple devices. After refreshing the device listing Kipling graphically displays all of the found and compatible LabJack devices in an easy to understand manner while providing some useful information to the user for debugging possible connection issues. Each device's model, serial number, user defined name, Ethernet IP address (when applicable), WiFi IP address (when applicable), and WiFi signal strength (when applicable) are displayed for easy viewing.

Scanning for Devices

The scanning process can take 60+ seconds when searching for devices connected over WiFi and if the device's WiFi connection is week, packets can get dropped and multiple retries may occur trying to collect information about the scanned device. Because of this, K3 exposes the option to select what interfaces should be used to search for devices. LJM can selectively scan for devices connected over USB, Ethernet, and WiFi. If you are having issues getting a device connected over Ethernet/WiFi or trying to debug your network connection issues the following two Networking App-Notes are useful to look at:
