Warner/superior electric's SS2000PCi motion controller interfacing with LabVIEW 6i

Sir,
In our application, we are controlling the movement of X-Y arm on the X-Y table. For this we are using superior electric products:
(a) Slo-Syn SS2000PCi Programmable Step Motor Controller
(b) MD808 Motor Drive
We are using two such controllers and motor drives to drive two 2 Amps Sanyo Denki Stepper motors: one each along X-axis and Y-axis. Along with the arm movement a data acquisition also has to be carried out. So, the motion control and Data Acquisition has to be synchronized by means of software. The problem now is to program the controller. Though MCPI Version 4.41 is there, we want to program the controller in LabVIEW 6i so that we can synch
ronize both motion control and Data Acquisition.There is no driver which is compatible to LabVIEW 6i.
Is there any 32-bit DLLs for this controller? If any one has these dll's please let me know. My E-mail ID: [email protected]
So that i can call these DLLs in LabVIEW 6i and program it.Or else send me at least the detailed low level command sets of the controller in pdf format so that i can develop our own drivers.
Regards,
Nagendra

Nagendra,
Unfortunately, I was unable to find any helpful resources for you based on a cursory web search. I recommend that you contact the manufacturer of the hardware and ask them if they have a driver (DLL) that you can use to interface with LabVIEW.
Good luck with your application, and have a good day.

  • Interface with LabView

    I am a very new to LabView--
    We are developing a board to interface with LabView devices- (ideally, the board would have a GPIB connector).  We would like to use LabView to simulate various conditions on the Interface board by controlling switching (board MOSFETs) and then use a GPIB controlled multimeter to read voltages coming out of the Interface Board). 
    Since the Interface Board we are working on does not have an "address", is it possible to use LabView to communicate with it (send output signals to the board and read signals from it)?  What is often done to have LabView controlled devices communicate with external circuitry ?
    Thanks,
    Alex

    What would be an advantage of an interface controller (such as 4823) over a DAQ card (such as PCI-6013)?  If we only need about 6-8 inputs (Digital I/O) and maybe about 6 Analog outputs, wouldnt the 6013 be sufficient to interface with our PCBA?
    In your original post, you indicated that a GPIB interface would be ideal. ICS Electronics makes various models of controllers that provide a GPIB SCPI command interface to digital and or analog I/O. This controller can be placed inside the instrument rather than inside a PC and would use GPIB to connect (as you requested).
    I have personal experience with the 4823, which can be used to control/monitor TTL devices on a byte-wise basis. Since you have digital and analog requirements, you could look at the ICS 4807 DAQ board. It may not have enough analog outputs though...
    The only reason I originally responded was your GPIB requirement.

  • Req any examples of how to use a USB midi controller​/keyboards with Labview TIA

    Req any examples of how to use a USB midi controller/keyboards with Labview TIA

    Hi,
    To access the MIDI ports you will need to call the Windows SDK. To send MIDI commands is relatively easy, here is an example that shows you how to send data to a MIDI controller or keyboard.
    As far as input goes, this is the hard part. There are a series of functions that you need to call to open up the device, set some buffers and and possibly a callback to get notifications on the incoming data.
    Reading MIDI data will not be an easy task, your best bet will be to implement this in a DLL and call that DLL in LabVIEW, there should be some code available o the web.
    = "http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url​=/library/en-us/multimed/htm/_win32_multimedia_... is a link to the Windows multimedia functions that you could use for MIDI input.
    Let me know if you have any further questions.

    I have a roboteq hdc 2450 and want connect to labview but have no idea how to do so. I have the drivers that came with it will it work to interface with labview?

    You can create your control code in LabVIEW and then use a Call Library Function Node to communicate with your roboteq DLL.  The first thing to do though, is check to see if Roboteq offers LabVIEW drivers.

  • I need a step motor and controller compatible with LabView Can you recommend any

    I need a step motor compatible with LabView and I thought i would check with you before i moved forward in my experiment

    Dear chapbs,
    I've attached a sample cart below to show you the components for a possible setup of your system. Keep in mind that whatever stepper drive you purchased would power your motor. If you go ahead with the purchase of a controller & drive, I would highly recommend contacting NI to insure that you purchased the correct accessory components and cables to connect & power the components. I hope the  sample cart is helpful. I created it  by browsing ni.com, adding items to my cart, and then saving the cart to an excel file. Please post back if you have additional questions.

  • Webcam interface with labview

    Hello all,
    I need to interface webcam with labview 2011,
    My requirement is as follows,
    1. Capture the image read by webcam using labview.
    2. Store it in local harddisk
    3. Compare it with standard image stored in PC and decide whether read image is OK or not.
    I am completely new to IMAQ and went through forum also. Can you tell me what are the steps to do this, how to getting started. What software I need to install for this,link and which webcam is good for this.
    Thanks
    Kudos are always welcome if you got solution to some extent.
    I need my difficulties because they are necessary to enjoy my success.
    --Ranjeet

    1. If you are using a webcam, ensure that the camera is compatible with DirectShow, and that the camera driver is installed and functioning.
    2. You will need to install the Vision Acquisition Software. The software features the activation-based NI-IMAQdx driver for acquiring from DirectShow-compliant devices. A license for this software is included with all NI vision hardware and all NI vision software licenses, and is also sold separately for applications that do not require image processing or specialized hardware.
    3. I am not sure how you are 'comparing' the acquired image with the image that is stored in the harddisk. But, if you want do machine vision & image processing, then you will need the Vision Development Module. In general, VDM functions are to be used for post processing images. Some example functions are: pattern matching, particle analysis, edge detection, thresholding, histograms, and optical character recognition. This module includes the VAS that was described earlier.
    4. There are lots of examples that are shipped with the software to help you understand and achieve what you are trying to do.

  • 4GL interface with LabVIEW

    The company I work for is having an application developed in Clarion 4GL code. I know nothing about this code, but I was curious if LabVIEW could interface with it. I have previously used code interface nodes to integrate C subroutines into a LabVIEW shells so I was wondering if this is feasible with 4GL also.

    If your Clarion 4GL code environment has the ability to turn the code into a dynamically linked library (dll) then it is possible that LabVIEW could call it, although it is not officially supported.
    Another option would be to use ActiveX. Does the environment have the ablility to add an ActiveX interface to the application?
    It looks like we need to know a little more about Clarion 4GL and what its capabilties are. Do you have access to this information? Can you talk to the developers of the code?

  • How to make Instron Bluehill (strain controller) communicate with labview (temperature controller)

    Hallo 
    we are now using instron to do some mechanical test, with instron bluehill to control the strain rate. 
    At the same time, Labview is used to control the temperature since samples are heated during load.
    we hope that Labview can communicate with Instron so that when the instron test is end, the RSD (Remote software Deployment) of Labview can be off automatically.
    Can someone give me some advice??
    Thanks.

    Hi Snail,
    Bluehill looks to be the software which ships with the strain controller hardware.  The question is really does that software provide any interface that an IDE can tap into?  ActiveX, .NET are a couple of examples - I would give Instron a call.  There is reference to an ActiveX API here - but no specifics.

  • Starting and stopping timer using external inputs interfaced with labview

    hello,
    I have trouble finding how to start and stop the timer using external voltage or current pulse. we are interfacing a circuit to labview. so for that we need to count the time it takes between the two external voltages. We have to keep on comparing the voltages to some reference voltage. And when the external voltage crosses the reference voltage we have to start the timer and again we have to stop the timer using tha same logic. We need it for time calculation between the triggers.
    hope you can help.

    https://decibel.ni.com/content/docs/DOC-23334 is agood example to start. You need to modify it to include stop trigger.

  • Keithley 2750 interfacing with LabVIEW 8.5?

    This is my first time trying to set up the two software and hardware.  The Keithley 2750 was originally installed and taking data using ExceLink.  Now, I want to use LabVIEW instead for data acqusition.  I have already installed the LabVIEW cds.
    Where do I start to set up the interface between the Keithley 2750 multimeter and LabVIEW 8.5?

    If the title says Agilent, then you have opened the wrong example. Exactly which driver did you download? Project style plug and play or just the plain plug and play? Where did you install it? With either, you should have a folder under your instr.lib called ke27xx. What is in that folder will depend on the type of driver you downloaded. The project style (recomended), will have a .lvlib and .lvproj files and folders called Examples, Private, and Public. If you don't have these, what do you have? Post an image of the directory structure.

  • Thorlabs Beam Profiler Interface with Labview?

    I am trying to interface directly with a Thorlabs Slit Beam Pofiler and while they have sent me some drivers and example program, nothing seems to be giving me the right outputs. If I use basic VISA functions I can read some of the parameters, and set some, but the information I really want is the scan data. Does anyone have experiance working with Thorlabs hardware that can tell me how to query this? The DLLs are pretty cryptic to me. I have done some programming with GPIB successfully but this is USB and while identifying the device doesn't seem an issue, I can't get much further than that. Thanks in advance for any input.

    Hello Cobalted,
    It looks like there are quite a few LabVIEW libraries for Thorlabs available on the NI Instrument Driver Network, you didn't specify a model but I'd look at these:
    NI.com/drivers Third Party (Thorlabs)
    http://search.ni.com/nisearch/app/main/p/bot/no/ap/tech/lang/en/pg/1/sn/ssnav:idr/q/thorlabs/?defaul...
    If there's no library available for your hardware there, you should be able to automatically create wrapper VIs for the DLL functions using the Import Shared Library Wizard as long as the vendor has provided the header:
