How to learn to talk with hardware in Labview?

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

I'm new to LABVIEW and hardware. I'm currently required to learn how to use LABVIEW to control the movement of a  Zaber positioner.

Different from other programming language, like python. I find it's hard to find a tutorial to learn how to "talk with hardware" in LABVIEW.

Can anyone give some hint for me to how to learn this one?

I transfer from Physics and my group lab is full of such kind of things. I really hope to learn and grasp them as soon as possible.

However, 2 weeks passed, I learned few things... Although my supervisor is nice and patient, I feel guilty...

Any suggestion is appreciated.

Thank you very much! 

Best,

Peter

Talking to a zaber motor in labview is equivalent to python -- you are sending serial commands to a device and waiting for its response. Zaber provides a fairly well done api on their website along with examples for talking to their drives -- I would start there.

Is it using RGBL command?

If yes, use the toolkit I developed. in the download section.
