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
Thanks Magnus
I'd downloaded version 0.979 in November, but because the release note for
that version stated "Added driver for HP 5335A counter" I just assumed that
any device would need a machine specific driver.
That'll teach me not to do my homework properly, and not to jump to
unwarranted conclusions:-), I'll give it a try.
I was aware of the re-badging and of Spectracom taking over Pendulum, but
wasn't aware of the closer of the Stockholm office and the loss of the
design  team, that would seem to be a very short sighted business
Hi Nigel and Magnus,

Do you know whether TimeLab will work with the CNT81 counter? If so, is
Version 0.979 still available anywhere?
