  1. Thank you very much for your prompt answer.

    I would prefer if I could find just those 2 vi's rather than re installing the suite -It takes ages!

    These two vi's are the only ones missing to get the thermocamera's vi's working.  I no longer need NI Vision's full capabilities so there is no other need to roll back to LV15.


    If you have these vi's please upload them. Thank you in advance

  2. Dear kanchi101,

    I did not find a solution via Modbus. I ended setting motion tasks via the Kollmorgen workbench software and controlled these via sending a set of boolean logic signals. These signals can be registered on the Digital I/O section of the Kollmorgen Workbench software. I also read the position of the motor via the analogue out of the drive.

    If you need more info let me know



  3. Hello,

    I am trying to use the Report Generation Toolkit to input nth XY plots in excel. I can input the data in excel but when I try to use the LV function to plot them, at best excel uses the first column as an X-Axis and the rest columns as nth-Y-Axis.

    Does anyone know how to plot multiple XY axis in excel?

    Thank you in advance

  4. Hello,

    In the the attached vi there is the followiing operation:

    When the boolean (Acquire) turns on, an array starts to fill with data, when that boolean turns off the user can decide to "keep" that 1D data by pressing a boolean button (Keep) and thus incerting that 1D array into a 2D array. When the user repeats the process the 2D array should populate accordingly; one row of 1D data each time the keep is pressed. As you can see from the attached vi, when the user presses the keep button, the 2D array continuously fills with the acquired array. I "prevented" this by adding a 1sec timer but its a bit unstable.

    Is there another way of doing this?

    Thank you in advance

  5. Thank you both for the prompt answers.

    The application is for testing a strain sensor against an increasing load.

    The aim is to start the vi and then press a start boolean button to start acquiring data until another boolean stops the acquisition. The acquired multichannel data need to be plotted against time, starting at 0sec and ending ie 10sec later. When the user presses the start button then the graph starts at 0sec and plots the new data.

    Thus my weird X-axis if for counting the time passed in sec while the boolean is true and all this on-off is what is causing the buffer issues.

    Any ideas?

  6. Hello,

    This is probably a silly question but my mind is stuck!

    Attached there is a simple voltage acquisition vi. The aim is to have a case structure in a while loop and acquire-plot data from a sensor when the case structure is true. The displayed data needs to be plotted against time in seconds starting from 0 and ending in Xsec. Each time the case structure is true, the x-y graph needs to display the new data with the time starting at 0.

    The vi does not do that, instead the old data remains on the graph and on top of that the vi gives an Error -200279 after a while.

    What am I doing wrong?

  7. Hello,

    I have a graph with data as follows:

    X    Y

    0      1

    1      4

    2      15

    3      33

    4      48

    5      64

    .      .

    .      .

    100       200


    and I want to "stretch" the Y-axis data like:

    X    Y

    0      1

    1      y2

    2      y3

    3      y4

    4      y5

    5      y6

    .      .

    .      .

    100       500


    ie I want the same y-axis starting point, a new end point and the same number of x-axis points. I dont mind more y-axis points, just to preserve the shape of the curve.

    Any ideas?



  8. Hello,

    I have an acquired string (not array) that has a repeatable pattern:

    2014062414:17:50.401B      0E     0E 2014062414:17:54.603      0E     0E 2014062414:17:55.648D      0E     0E 2014062414:17:55.862A     0E     0E 2014062414:57:10.786     0U     0U 2014062414:57:11.841      0U     0U 2014062414:57:18.112     34  11111  2014062414:57:19.157     34  11111  ....

    This is an array made up from a time-stamp and certain values (settings). The aim is to convert it to a 2D array and each row will be a 4 element 1D array in the following format: 2014062414:17:50.401|B|0E|0E| where "|" is placed to denote a different cell.

    The problem is that that the array has 1,000,000 time-stamps & set of settings ie a few million characters, hence using loops to manipulate it make my pc run out of memory!

    In addition the second setting "B" in "2014062414:17:50.401B      0E     0E", sometimes it appears, sometimes its another word character (ie A) or sometimes its a "space" character, always attached to the time-stamp. I am looking for a way to create a space between the time-stamp & the character if present in order to, further down the line, create a column with the word characters.

    Any suggestions?


    Thank you in advance

  9. Thank you for your prompt reply!

    I created a curve (see attached file) that is made from a straight inclined line (0-190) a curve (190-812), another inclined straight line 813-987) and a third inclined straight line (988-1000). I made an effort and managed to locate when the slope changes but how can I tell which is the curved and which is the straight part of the plot? The second derivative does not show something useful.

    Thank you in advance

  10. Hello,

    The only code that works to communicate with the drive is attached. I can read the "588" parameter and get the position of a Kollmorgen motor (AKM13C-AKCNGD00). I went through the parameter list and they have 1760 instructions but I have no idea which one can make it move (write). I keep getting errors. Any suggestions?

  11. Hello,

    I have to set up a system that uses the following Kollmorgen components:

    Servomotor AKM24D-ANBNR-00
    Drive AKD-P00306-NBCC-E000

    I am interested in creating with LabVIEW an application to control the motor by sending a speed profile. I read that NI has teamed up with Kollmorgen and created a series of hardware (such as the NI-9514 cDAQ) that are used in conjunction with cRIO hardware & the RT/FPGA software (http://www.ni.com/pdf/manuals/375516c.pdf).

    Unfortunately this is a very expensive option, and I thought that there must be a solution just using a PC and a cheap cDAQ or serial/modbus/ethernet communication method. Are there any suggestions on how to do this? Anyone with experience on the Kollmorgen hardware? Is it going to be difficult & time consuming?


    Thank you in advance

  12. Hello,

    I have a 2D nth array, ie:

    1  2  3  4  5  6

    2  3  7  8  9  4

    7  8  3  45  7 1


    2  5  1  8  1  5 

    I want to take the first three rows, add the elements together and create a new row that will replace the three rows and I want to do this every three rows and create a nth/3 2D array.


    Any ideas?


    Thank you in advance


  13. Thank you all for the replies.
    The evaluation board comes with a software (*.exe & *.dll) written in .Net Framework v4.6 (I used a decompiler to find out!). The problem now is how to load it in LabVIEW. There is no .h file accompanying the .dll and if I import "connectivity>.NET> property/invoke then there is a huge list of commands but its not clear what to use to read & write. By the way the DS8500 is a HART modem.

  14. I have a DS5800 evaluation kit from Maxim Integrated and it comes with a USB port to read/write data. It also comes along with Maxim's software to read/write string data. I thought of interfacing it with LabVIEW and read from it. I tried to use the generic USB vi's in the example finder just in case I can read something but as expected it cannot even see anything connected.


    Is there any way to get information from this or any USB port?



  15. Thank you for the replies.


    This is the first time that I am doing freelancing job on my own. So there is no company overheads or a manager/salesman to make discounts!


    So the bottom line is, after adding hardware costs, incurred expences & labor, what is a reasonable & competitive percentage that I should add on top as profit?
