Need help with LabVIEW code for motor control.

Hi,
My name is Sasi. I am a BME grad student working on my thesis topic of evaluating spine implants for low back pain. For this I am building a test machine that would apply pure moments to a spine specimen. I am using LabVIEW 8.5 to implement control of a brushless AC servo motor. My requirement is,
Step 1: Initialize the motor.
Step 2: Start moving it at a uniform RPM to the right (This RPM value too user can enter).
Step
3: While doin Step 2; simultaneously read torque cell data (Using DAQ
asst.). DAQ o/p is from 0 V to 10 V; 0 V being -10 Nm n
            10 V being  +10 Nm
Step 4: When Torque value reaches +10 Nm, i.e 10 V, the motor stops.
Step
5: From the position where motor stopped (i.e no need to reset to
initial position) Start moving in the opposite direction at the same
            uniform RPM as in Step 2 while reading torque cell data.
Step 6: Once again when torque reaches -10 Nm, i.e. 0 V, the motor should stop.
Step 7: Repeat 'Step 2' to 'Step 6' 3 times.
Step 8: Reset motor postion.
Till now I have managed to get the motor to move forward n backward @ a desired vel, accl, n deceleration for 3 cycles. I am attaching my code. I am having problem inserting the code for reading DAQmx amidst all this. Can anyone help me out.
Thnks,
Sasi.
Solved!

Hi Sasidhar,
I took a look at your problem and I think I have a workable solution for you.  I definitely agree with Lynn's suggestion of using parallel loops.  This will allow the DAQmx portion to run uninhibited by the motion portion, and vice versa.  Plus, you only need to iterate the motion loop whenever the voltage level crosses a threshold.  So, by iterating on the motion code in the same loop that you are iterating on DAQmx code, you are essentially wasting processor.
I created a VI that should do what you are wanting.  I tested it out myself and it works great.  You might have a tweak a few things to apply to your system (like motion board ID and DAQmx physical channel, etc.).  I used two parallel loops and event-based programming.  Basically the motion loop starts the motor spinning at the specified velocity.  Once the motor is spinning, it waits for the DAQmx loop to tell it that the voltage value has crossed the threshold.  When the voltage value exceeds the maximum threshold (which I set to a value slightly less than 10 to allow for jitter and saturation), the DAQmx loop signals the motion loop that it can finish its iteration.  The motion loop stops the motion, reverses the direction, and starts the motion again.  Once motion has started, it again waits for the DAQmx loop to tell it that a threshold has occurred, but this time, it is looking for a minimum threshold.  I used "Occurrences" to implement the event-based programming in LabVIEW.
I have commented the code rather thouroughly, so hopefully the comments will answer any remaining questions.  The benefit of using event-based programming for this is that you save processor time, and your motion is more closely synchonized with the DAQmx.  Instead of iterating the motion loop as fast as you can, checking for updates each time, you just pause it, and wait for the other loop to tell you when to start up again.  In the mean time, the processor doesn't have to worry about iterating that loop over and over again.  Also, when the occurrence does occur, you catch it immediately, instead of having to wait until the next iteration.  Thus, you are more closely synchronized with the DAQmx portion of the code.
I hope this will help you.  Please post back if you have any questions about the code or its implementation.  Good Luck!

  • Need help with Labview code for DAQmx

    I'm currently trying to write Labview code for some thesis research and am having problems.  I'm using the cDAQ 9172 with strain gage modules and two voltage input modules.  I'll be reading/recording a voltage from an external source on one channel, while recording strains and accelerations with the other channels.  I need to do all this simultaneously.
    Everything I've done to this point has been in SignalExpress so I'm not sure how to program any of this.  I also need to be able to calibrate the strain gages prior to each set of recordings.  Any help you guys could offer would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

    Hi,
    I'm not sure how much this will help you, but I've attached a screen dump of code from a project I did that sounds pretty similar to what you're working on. The code is from a subVI that I used to create the daqMX measurement task for my data acquisition. I was also using a 9172. This was written in 8.5, but the only thing that you may not have access to is the functions for null offset and shunt cal of the strain gage channels. Hopefully this will at least get you started on your way to setting this up.

  • I need help with my code..

    hi guys. as the subject says I need help with my code
    the Q for my code is :
    write a program that reads a positive integer x and calculates and prints a floating point number y if :
    y = 1 ? 1/2 + 1/3 - ? + 1/x
    and this is my code
       This program that reads a positive integer x and calculates
       and prints a floating point number y if :
                 y = 1 - 1/2 + 1/3 - ? + 1/x
       import java.util.Scanner; // program uses class Scanner
        class Sh7q2
           // main method begins execution of Java application
           public static void main( String args[] )
          // create Scanner to obtain input from command window
             Scanner input = new Scanner( System.in );
             int i = 1; // i is to control the loop
             int n = 2; // n is suppose to control the number sign
             int x; // a positive integer entered by the user
             int m;
             System.out.println("Enter a positive integer");
             x = input.nextInt();
             do
                m = (int) Math.pow( -1, n)/i;
                System.out.println(m);
                   n++;
                   i++;
             while ( m >= 1/x );
          } // end method main
       } // end class Sh7q2 when I compile it there is no error
    but in the run it tells me to enter a positive integer
    suppose i entered 5
    then the result is 1...
    can anyone tell me what's wrong with my code

       This program that reads a positive integer x and calculates
       and prints a floating point number y if :
                 y = 1 - 1/2 + 1/3 - ? + 1/x

  • Need help with calculator project for an assignment...

    Hi all, I please need help with my calculator project that I have to do for an assignment.
    Here is the project's specifications that I need to do"
    """Create a console calculator applicaion that:
    * Takes one command line argument: your name and surname. When the
    program starts, display the date and time with a welcome message for the
    user.
    * Display all the available options to the user. Your calculator must include
    the arithmetic operations as well as at least five scientific operations of the
    Math class.
    -Your program must also have the ability to round a number and
    truncate it.
    -When you multiply by 2, you should not use the '*' operator to perform the
    operation.
    -Your program must also be able to reverse the sign of a number.
    * Include sufficient error checking in your program to ensure that the user
    only enters valid input. Make use of the String; Character, and other
    wrapper classes to help you.
    * Your program must be able to do conversions between decimal, octal and
    hex numbers.
    * Make use of a menu. You should give the user the option to end the
    program when entering a certain option.
    * When the program exits, display a message for the user, stating the
    current time, and calculate and display how long the user used your
    program.
    * Make use of helper classes where possible.
    * Use the SDK to run your program."""
    When the program starts, it asks the user for his/her name and surname. I got the program to ask the user again and again for his/her name and surname
    when he/she doesn't insert anything or just press 'enter', but if the user enters a number for the name and surname part, the program continues.
    Now my question is this: How can I restrict the user to only enter 'letters' (and spaces of course) but allow NO numbers for his/her surname??

    Now my question is this: How can I restrict the user to only enter 'letters' (and spaces of course) but allow NO numbers for his/her surname??You cannot restrict the user. It is a sad fact in programming that the worst bug always sits in front of the Computer.
    What you could do is checking the input string for numbers. If it contains numbers, just reprompt for the Name.
    AND you might want to ask yourself why the heck a calculator needs to know the users Name.

  • Need help with WMI code that will send output to db

    'm new to WMI code writing, so I need some help with writing code that we can store on our server. I want this code to run when a user logs into their computer
    and talks to our server. I also want the code to:
    * check the users computer and find all installed patches
    * the date the patches were installed
    * the serial number of the users computer
    * the computer name, os version, last boot up time, and mac address
    and then have all this output to a database file. At the command prompt I've tried:
    wmic qfe get description, hotfixid
    This does return the patch information I'm looking for, but how do I combine that line of code with:
    wmic os get version, csname, serialnumber, lastbootuptime
    and
    wmic nicconfig get macaddress
    and then get all this to output to a database file?

    Thank you for the links. I checked out http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/scriptcenter/dd793612.aspx and
    found lots of good information. I also found a good command that will print information to a text file.
    Basically what I'm trying to do is retrieve a list of all installed updates (Windows updates and 3rd party updates). I do like that the below code because it gives me the KB numbers for the Windows updates. I need this information so my IT co-workers &
    I can keep track of which of our user computers need a patch/update installed and preferably which patch/update. The minimum we want to know is which patches / updates have been installed on which computer. If you wondering why we don't have Windows automatic
    updates enable, that's because we are not allowed to.   
    This is my code so far. 
    #if you want the computer name, use this command
    get-content env:computername
    $computer = get-content env:computername
    #list of installed patches
    Get-Hotfix -ComputerName $computer#create a text file listing this information
    Get-Hotfix > 'C:\users\little e\Documents\WMI help\PowerShell\printOutPatchList.txt'
    I know you don't want to tell me the code that will print this out to a database (regardless if it's Access or SQL), and that's find. But maybe you can tell me this. Is it possible to have the results of this sent to a database file or do I need to go into
    SQL and write code for SQL to go out and grab the data from an Excel file or txt file? If I'm understanding this stuff so far, then I suspect that it can be done both ways, but the code needs to be written correctly for this to happen. If it's true, then which
    way is best (code in PowerShell to send information to SQL or SQL go get the information from the text file or Excel file)?

  • Help with writing code for button

    Hi!
    Can someone help me with the code for a button that sends my menu back to 0?
    This is the code current code, and I've created a button called sistapilen that I want to insert where the regular button "arrow" is not visible. I want sistapilen to navigate me back to 0. (Or if I can get "arrow" to do it and delete "sistapilen"). 
    /Jen

  • New to Programming, need your help with writing code for java in Xcode.

    Hey everyone! Sorry if I sound like a total idiot here with a bunch of developers but I could really use your help. I am in college and having a bit of problems with my intro to programming class. The class is entirely Java based and so, after having to use dos windows on my grandpas crappy laptop I found out about xcode. I downloaded and installed it but I am having problems seeing where exactly it is that I am to write my code for a normal java application. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I wrote it on the bottom of a bunch of code that looked strange to me. For relatively simple java programs I chose the java application template. Is there something here that I missed?

    The Java Application project template looks like it sets up an application and some kind of starting UI using Swing/AWT. I didn't look at it too indepth, but if you are in an introductory course this might be more than you need to complete your assignments. There doesn't seem to be blank Java template, so I don't know what you should use. Perhaps just a blank project you add your .java files to.
    To answer where to write code, you would write it in your .java files under the /src folder. Execution begins in
    public static void main(String args[]) {}
    in YourAppName.java, then creates an object based on your application class, and runs the code from there to display the UI.

  • Noob needs help with this code...

    Hi,
    I found this code in a nice tutorial and I wanna make slight
    adjustments to the code.
    Unfortunately my Action Script skills are very limited... ;)
    This is the code for a 'sliding menue', depending on which
    button u pressed it will 'slide' to the appropriate picture.
    Here's the code:
    var currentPosition:Number = large_pics.pic1._x;
    var startFlag:Boolean = false;
    menuSlide = function (input:MovieClip) {
    if (startFlag == false) {
    startFlag = true;
    var finalDestination:Number = input._x;
    var distanceMoved:Number = 0;
    var distanceToMove:Number =
    Math.abs(finalDestination-currentPosition);
    var finalSpeed:Number = .2;
    var currentSpeed:Number = 0;
    var dir:Number = 1;
    if (currentPosition<=finalDestination) {
    dir = -1;
    } else if (currentPosition>finalDestination) {
    dir = 1;
    this.onEnterFrame = function() {
    currentSpeed =
    Math.round((distanceToMove-distanceMoved+1)*finalSpeed);
    distanceMoved += currentSpeed;
    large_pics._x += dir*currentSpeed;
    if (Math.abs(distanceMoved-distanceToMove)<=1) {
    large_pics._x =
    mask_pics._x-currentPosition+dir*distanceToMove;
    currentPosition = input._x;
    startFlag = false;
    delete this.onEnterFrame;
    b1.onRelease = function() {
    menuSlide(large_pics.pic1);
    b2.onRelease = function() {
    menuSlide(large_pics.pic2);
    b3.onRelease = function() {
    menuSlide(large_pics.pic3);
    b4.onRelease = function() {
    menuSlide(large_pics.pic4);
    I need to adjust five things in this code...
    (1) I want this menue to slide vertically not horizontally.
    I changed the 'x' values in the code to 'y' which I thought
    would make it move vertically, but it doesn't work...
    (2) Is it possible that, whatever the distance is, the
    "sliding" time is always 2.2 sec ?
    (3) I need to implement code that after the final position is
    reached, the timeline jumps to a certain movieclip to a certain
    label - depending on what button was pressed of course...
    I tried to implement this code for button number two...
    b2.onRelease = function() {
    menuSlide(large_pics.pic2);
    if (currentPosition = finalDestination) {
    this.large_pics.pic2.gotoAndPlay("s1");
    --> sliding still works but it doesn't jump to the
    appropriate label...
    (4) I wanna add 'Next' & 'Previous' buttons to the slide
    show - what would be the code in this case scenario ?
    My first thought was something like that Flash checks which
    'pic' movieclip it is showing right now (pic1, pic2, pic3 etc.) and
    depending on what button u pressed u go to the y value of movieclip
    'picX + 1' (Next button) or 'picX - 1' (Previous button)...
    Is that possible ?
    (5) After implementing the Next & Previous buttons I need
    to make sure that when it reached the last pic movieclip it will
    not go further on the y value - because there is no more pic
    movieclip.
    Options are to either slide back to movieclip 'pic1' or
    simply do nothing any more on the next button...
    I know this is probably Kindergarten for you, but I have only
    slight ideas how to do this and no code knowledge to back it up...
    haha
    Thanx a lot for your help in advance !
    Always a pleasure to learn from u guys... ;)
    Mike

    Hi,
    I made some progress with the code thanx to the help of
    Simon, but there are still 2 things that need to be addressed...
    (1) I want the sliding time always to be 2.2 sec...
    here's my approach to it - just a theory but it might work:
    we need a speed that changes dynamically depending on the
    distance we have to travel...
    I don't know if that applies for Action Scrip but I recall
    from 6th grade, that...
    speed = distance / time
    --> we got the time (which is always 2.2 sec)
    --> we got the disctance
    (currentposition-finaldestination)
    --> this should automatically change the speed to the
    appropriate value
    Unfortunately I have no clue how the action script would look
    like (like I said my action script skills are very limited)...
    (2) Also, one other thing I need that is not implemented yet,
    is that when the final destination is reached it jumps to a certain
    label inside a certain movieclip - every time different for each
    button pressed - something like:
    if (currentPosition = finalDestination) {
    this.large_pics.pic2.gotoAndPlay("s1");
    that statement just doesn't work when I put it right under
    the function for each button...
    Thanx again for taking the time !!!
    Mike

  • Beginner needs help with simple code.

    I just statrted learnind java, and I need some help with this simple program. For some reason everytime I enter my Farenheit value, the Celsius conversion returns as 0.0. Would really appreciate the help. Thanks.
    Here's the code:
    public class TempConverter
    public static void main(String[] args)
    double F = Double.parseDouble(args[0]);
    System.out.println("Temperature in Farenheit is: " + F);
    double C = 5 / 9;
    C *= (F - 32);
    System.out.println("Temperature in Celsius is: " + C);
    }

    double C = 5 / 9This considers "5" and "9" to be integers and does an integer division, discarding the remainder. The result of that division is 0. Trydouble C = 5.0/9.0;
