Cobolt MonitorTM Software
The Cobolt MonitorTM software provides a graphical way to monitor the laser performance and to change power, operation mode and other settings.
Cobolt MonitorTM 126.96.36.199 is an upgrade to the Cobolt MonitorTM 188.8.131.52 version which was a new combined GUI for all Cobolt laser models. The GUI supports simultaneous connection and monitoring of multiple lasers, configured for either RS232 or USB2.0. The GUI automatically searches for new Cobolt lasers connected to the computer and presents them listed. We highly recommend that you upgrade to the latest version!
Download the latest version : Cobolt Monitor-184.108.40.206
NOTE: Cobolt MonitorTM 220.127.116.11 requires the .NET 4.0 framework to be installed on the target machine (standard from Windows 8). The .NET 4.0 framework is availible for the majority of Windows releases, including: Windows XP (SP3), Windows Vista (SP1), Windows 7 (SP1), Windows 8, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10.

In case you have an older Cobolt laser which does not connect to Cobolt MonitorTM 6.0.X.0, please contact your Cobolt distributor with your serial number and we will provide you with the correct software.
