  • 1. Way to Convert VIs to Source Code Equivalent?
    ""text based"   If this an absolute, then LV can not be used!   I used to be able to read machine code which was a bunch of octal values repested by groups of lights. It was readable to me and I was human back then.   If I had a utility that translated it into hebrew which is human readable would that be OK? What about braile?   When you drive down a road and see a pictogram sign that tells you winding road, you as a human can read it but it is not text.   In my book (for what little that matters) a LV diagram is much more readable than any code written in any other language I have ever seen.   This idea that computers programs MUST go through some sort of text phase is ancient history.   Ben
  • 2. decorations pumps 3dpipes
    Hi everyone,   This might sound as a very simple question but i spent the whole day on it...   I used Labview 7.0 on my machine a few months ago. It had a large collection of very nice equipment, 3d pipes, pumps, reactors, etc...   Now I installed Labview 8.0 and I just cannot figure out where those decorations/symbols should be, or what else i need to install to get them.   Any help is very much appreciated   Thanks Z.
  • 3. pass bitmap
    In a VB .NET environment, can I pass bitmaps into a dll built using LabVIEW 7.0? I can use the following to pass in two arrays. But what kind connectors should I implement in the LabVIEW side? Use Image or 2-D array? Thanks. ' VB .NET code IMAQ.AcquireImage() Dim objImage As Object = IMAQ.Images.Item(1).ImageToArray
  • 4. LabVIEW PDA and WinCE
    Hello,   I inquired with R&D about this and the answer I obtained was that there is no special isolation of processes from the OS by LabVIEW PDA.  As far as development is concerned, the block diagram can still of course allow a programmer to define "parallel" processes, but all that really matters is how the code is compiled, and the official word was that PDA doesn't do anything special and that "thread prioritization and interrupt servicing" are NOT "isolated by the RTE from the OS."   I hope this helps!   Best Regards,   JLS

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.
