TimeLab should be able to work with it as the CNT91 supports TalkOnly 
(and TimeLab only supports TalkOnly counters for generic types). I can't 
use my CNT90 with TimeLab, as it doesn't have TalkOnly mode unfortunately.

Tektronix and Fluke re-badged them. Spectracom bought Pendulum and in 
the end they closed the Stockholm office and the Pendulum design-team 
dispersed.

Cheers,
Magnus
