  • 1. how to read two counters and writing AO at the same time with 6024?
    I use Labview to read two quadrature encoder outputs and I use the two counters of 6024E for this. I can read the encoders continuously. I also want to send an analog output with a period of 30 miliseconds while the reading of encoders is continuouing at the background. How can I do this. I searched the NI discussion forums and found that my device have only 1 DMA channel. Is it possible to overcome the problem using interrupt??(set device Is there any example code about this problem? Thanks a lot.."

    Hello ng, has anyone experience using LabVIEW on Windows XP Embedded? Does it work, are there limitations, ... Thanks in advance, Marko
  • 4. Deconvolution seems not to work
    Hallo, I have an input sequence x(t) (time domain signal) going through a filter VI (namely Butterworth Lowpass) producing a response y(t). Now y(t)=x(t)*h(t) (Convolution, no multiplication !!) where h(t) is the pulse response of the filter. When I apply x(t) and y(t) to the Deconvolution VI, I expect a sequence that represents h(t), that's my understanding. But the deconvolution always returns an array with just one single element. What's my error in thinking or is there a bug in the software? Maybe the input arrays do need to satisfy some additional border conditions (length equal or not equal or whatever). Thank you Oliver friedrich
  • 5. Buffer allocation with case structure
    Hi All, using the tool allocation highlighting tool in LV, I find that an allocation happens in a true case of a case structure. What happens if the false case is executed? Will the buffer allocation happen anyway? Thanks for the help Denis

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.
