  • 1. How to make polar plot in 3D?
    I want to display polar coordinate datas in a 3D-graph. I think one option is to transform the polar datas into cartesian coordinates and then combining them with the 3Dparametric graph function. But till now i am used to the simple 2D polar plot and i wonder if it is possible to convert the polar plot into 3D. Do someone have any ideas?
  • 2. Is it possible to set password complexity in DSC?
    Hi,   I would like to force a password complexity in DSC. In the User Account Manager it is possible to set some parameters: password expires after..., etc. But there I don't see where I could set the password complexity or length. Meaning a user could enter a one character password and that is unacceptable!   Does anybody know if it is possible to activate password complexity checking somewhere? If not, is LV8 (or the next DSC module) going to have this feature?   I suppose this is not handled by windows...     NB: The administrator cannot set the password. This is the user that does it.  
  • 3. How to use a com server develpped in python
    Hi,   I am trying to use a Com server, developped with python to communicate with an equipment. The server is working fine if  called from VBScript ex: Set device = CreateObject("My_server") msg = device.DetectTactic(NomTACTIC,portCom).   I have tried through the ActiveX AutomationOPen, but my Com server doesn't appear in the List. How can I correctly register this Server (I have only done a regsvr32 Path/Myserver.dll command)   Any help will be welcome.   Best regards   Marc Baulin  
  • 4. Using several independent applications on the RT target
    I am using LabView RT 7.1 and a cFP-2010 controller as the RT target.   I want to use my cFP controller for several independent applications, i.e. I want to download several applications to the controller, and control which application to run by a host application in the PC.   Example:     The RT target has 3 independent applications:, and The host PC also has 3 independent applications:, and   When executing on the host PC, I want to execute on the RT target, and correspondingly applications 2 and 3, without having to download the correct RT application each time. Also, when executing, I do not want or to take any processor time, only storage memory.   What would be a good technique to

Hi Ronald,
Assuming you want to use LabVIEW with your device, if you do not have an instrument driver for it, you can always use NI-VISA for communication.  VISA is a platform independent communication protocol that is often used in cases like these.  I have linked a tutorial below which discusses VISA communication in LabVIEW via the parallel port.  I have also linked an example program that works with LabVIEW 5 and later.  To use NI-VISA, all you need is your instrument's command set, which should be located in it's user manual.  Also, make sure you install NI-VISA after you have installed LabVIEW or the VISA functions will not be installed into the LabVIEW directory.  If you have any questions, just let me know!

Thank you for replying so quickly. I don't think I explained myself very well. We don't care what computer port we use. All that we need is some NI driver to control the RFX 600 Generator from Advance Energy Industries, Inc. Please look at attachment for I/O pin details. What is the best device we can use?

NI doesn't have a driver and judging by the lack of responses, no regular members of the forum have one either. Unlike other instruments with a DB-25 or DB-9, the port on this instrument is not for a serial interface. The DB-25 is just a convenient way to put a whole bunch of different signals into a single connector. It would appear that you use one or more DAQ boards to control the instrument. You can get boards with analog in/analog out/digital I/O. This sort of application is way outside what constitutes an instrument driver. The 0-15V logic may require some additional circuitry. Most of the digital I/O from NI is 0-5V. I haven't done it but you can count up the number of analog input/outputs, digital I/O required, go to <a href=" http://www.**--****.com/ " target="_blank"></a> and select the Shop for Hardware or contact a sales engineer through the NI Web site or locally. 
Have you asked Advanced Energy for a hardware/software interface? It has been quite a while since I've had any contact with anyone there but once upon a time, they were using LabVIEW internally. Other than developing something yourself or hiring someone else to do it, that may be your best option.
