ZillaConfig is a tool that makes configuring your Zilla Controller easier.  It also allows you to save configurations for backups, and alternate configurations.
You can also put the Zilla into DAQ mode and watch the various values change while you drive. (DAQ mode)
It will also create logs of your DAQ data for later use in either Zilla daq format, or normalized .CSV format.

Written in Java, so it can run on almost any system. (Requires Java 1.6.0 or newer)
