control & measurement software for CEBO-STICK

We offer a variety of small programms for the CEBO-STICK. Some of them are presented below. They are available at no additional charge and can be used with Windows. You can get them from our download page. Look for "Cebo-Stick Control- and Measurement-Software". Additionally you have to download and install the CEBO-STICK device driver. To create the executables, we have used the "compile" functionality of ProfiLab Expert (see below).


Direct reading of the voltages at the four analog inputs and monitoring the state of the three digital io signals.

CEBOLab software

The CEBOLab software is compatible to all CEBO devices. You can use it to configure all parameters of the device, to obtain readings of all inputs and to set all outputs. CEBOLab versions are available for Windows, Linux and OS X.


The voltage levels of the four analog inputs are shown graphically. The sampling-time is adjustable (the shortest-time: 0.2 s). Graphs can be saved, loaded and printed.


Samples the voltages at the four analog inputs and the three digital signals. The logging is executed either manually by clicking a button or automatically with adjustable repetition time (0.2 s to several hours). The logged data can be saved to disk and transferred to an external spreadsheet or word application.

DLL (driver) for ProfiLab-Expert 4.0

Abacom describes their software as follows: "The ProfiLab-Expert software allows you to develop your own digital or analogue measuring technology projects. It doesn’t matter if you want to create analogue measurements or digital controls - you can realize it all. And for all this you don’t have to write a single program-line. You create your projects just like drawing a wiring diagram. Simply add buttons, displays, etc. to your diagram and build your project step by step." Please note, that Cesys does neither sell ProfiLab-Expert software nor grant support for questions related to ProfiLab-Expert software.


best support

You get free commissioning support in our support-forum from the people who know the device best, the developers ! For more complex problems relating to your specific application we can help, of course, also fast and efficient.

start right away

Using our turnkey applications, you can immediately start measuring and controlling - without having to write a line of code. Of course, they are available to use at no additional cost with the CEBO. You can download drivers, API and applications without registration You can even try CEBOLAB and most other applications in demo mode without a connected device.

short learning curve

All API's are well structured and have a modern interface, matching the respective language standard. They are designed for cross platform development, supporting both Windows and Linux.
