How to download iolab software for offline use


  • If you want to install the application in your local AppData folder and create a shortcut on your desktop, download the setup file named IOLab-1.80.1605-setup.exe (recommended).



  • If you want to extract the application from a ZIP file and run it without installation, download the ZIP file named IOLab_win32_1.80.1605.zip (old-style distribution for experts).



Step 2: Install the application and the driver (if needed)




If you downloaded the setup file, double-click on it and follow the instructions to install the application. If Windows issues a warning, tell it to Run Anyway.


If you downloaded the ZIP file, extract it to a folder of your choice and double-click on the application named IOLAB.exe.


The first time you run the application, you may need to install the driver for the dongle. If a dialog box pops up asking you to install the driver, click on Install and wait for the installation to complete.


Step 3: Plug in the dongle and turn on the iOLab device




Plug the dongle into a USB port on your computer and wait for the green light to turn on. Then, turn on the iOLab device by pressing the power button on the top. The device should beep and flash its LED lights. You should also see a blue light on the dongle indicating that it is connected to the device.


Congratulations, you have successfully downloaded iOLab for Windows. You can now launch the application and start using iOLab for your physics experiments.


How to Download iOLab for Mac




If you are using a Mac computer, follow these steps to download iOLab:


Step 1: Download the ZIP file




Go to and download the ZIP file named IOLab_macOS_1.80.1605.zip.


Step 2: Extract and run the application




Extract the ZIP file to a folder of your choice and double-click on the application named IOLAB.app. If Mac issues a warning, tell it to Open Anyway.


Step 3: Plug in the dongle and turn on the iOLab device




Plug the dongle into a USB port on your computer and wait for the green light to turn on. Then, turn on the iOLab device by pressing the power button on the top. The device should beep and flash its LED lights. You should also see a blue light on the dongle indicating that it is connected to the device.


Congratulations, you have successfully downloaded iOLab for Mac. You can now launch the application and start using iOLab for your physics experiments.


How to Download iOLab for Python Development (Optional)




If you want to use Python for development, you can download iOLab for Python and communicate with iOLab using Python code. This is an optional step for advanced users who want more flexibility and control over iOLab. Follow these steps to download iOLab for Python:


Step 1: Download the Python libraries




Go to and download the Python libraries for iOLab. You will need two files: pyserial-2.7.win32.exe (or pyserial-2.7.tar.gz for Mac) and IOLab-1.80.zip.


If you are using Windows, run pyserial-2.7.win32.exe to install pyserial, a module that allows Python to communicate with serial ports. If you are using Mac, extract pyserial-2.7.tar.gz and run python setup.py install in a terminal window.


Then, extract IOLab-1.80.zip to a folder of your choice. This folder contains several Python files that provide functions and classes for interacting with iOLab.


Step 2: Communicate with iOLab using Python code




To communicate with iOLab using Python code, you will need to import the IOLab module from the folder where you extracted IOLab-1.80.zip. For example, if you extracted it to C:\Users\YourName\IOLab-1.80, you can write:


import sys sys.path.append("C:\\Users\\YourName\\IOLab-1.80") import IOLab


Then, you can create an instance of the IOLab class and use its methods to control, acquire, and display data from iOLab. For example, you can write:


iolab = IOLab.IOLab() iolab.open() iolab.set_digital_outputs(0b11111111) # turn on all digital outputs iolab.get_analog_input(0) # get voltage from analog input 0 iolab.close()


You can find more examples and documentation in the README.txt file in the IOLab-1.80 folder.


Congratulations, you have successfully downloaded iOLab for Python development. You can now use Python code to communicate with iOLab and perform custom experiments.
