1. Testing Tools
2. Test Procedures

1. Download the Test software
Please download the Test software of TFmini-S at our official website ( A00 Benewake
Caution: please shut down any anti-virus software before uncompressing the PC software. Otherwise, maybe the software is deleted as virus. The software is only runnable under Windows environment for the time being. Please refer to Attachment 1 - Product manual of TF Test software.

2. Connection of the hardware
Connect “TFmini-S”, “TTL - USB board” and “USB cable” as shown in Figure 4. Make sure there is no loose connection. Then connect “USB cable” with “PC”.

3. Connection to the Test software and data output
Open the PC software and select “① TFmini” and select automatically recognized occupied serial port (here it is “② COM9”), as shown in Figure 5. Then click “CONNECT”. Upon successful connection, The continuous images of the output data will be displayed in area “④ TIME LINE CHART” on the right. Besides, the real-time data of the Current measure distance (Dist), effective data points per second (Effective Points) and signal strength (Strength) will be
displayed in area “⑥ REAL TIME DATA” below.
