LabJackPython requires Python 2.6 or higher. Modules have been updated for
Python 3.x but not all functionality has been tested yet. Functionality used in
examples are tested. Please report bugs to support@labjack.com or on GitHub:

    https://github.com/labjack/LabJackPython

To use Modbus first check that your LabJack device meets the minimum required
firmware version listed on this page:

    https://labjack.com/support/software/api/modbus/ud-modbus

To upgrade firmware look at this page:

    https://labjack.com/support/firmware

To use Modbus on a UE9 over Ethernet, install Comm firmware 1.50 or higher.

To install LabJackPython, run the following command in a terminal (remove "sudo"
on Windows):

    $ sudo python setup.py install

From there, interacting with your devices is easy.

For U3:
>>> import u3
>>> d = u3.U3()
>>> d.configU3()
{'BootloaderVersion': '0.27',
 'CIODirection': 0,
 ...,
}
>>> d.close()

For U6:
>>> import u6
>>> d = u6.U6()
>>> d.configU6()
{'BootloaderVersion': '6.15',
 'FirmwareVersion': '0.88',
 ...,
}
>>> d.close()

For UE9:
>>> import ue9
>>> d = ue9.UE9()
>>> d.commConfig()
{'IPAddress' : '192.168.1.209'
 ...,
}
>>> d.close()

For U12:
>>> import u12
>>> d = u12.U12()
>>> d.eAnalogIn(0)
{'overVoltage': 0,
 'idnum': 0,
 'voltage': 1.42578125
}
>>> d.close()
