kusb 488 and LABVIEW

Can someone tell me how to connect with an instrument using the KUSB - 488 A converter USB to GPIB and LABVIEW?
My question is that if we have equipped a GPIB card on computer LABVIEW to recognize and display the address of cards... When I connect the USB-GPIB converter without this interface appears. So, how to treat the instrument? using VISA? Please give a simple example...

Thank you

  • NOR-Fieldpoint supported in Windows 7 and LabView 8.6

    We have a 'classic' with an ethernet controller FieldPoint system. We want to be able to read/write from/to the FieldPoint network using a computer with LabView 8.6 and Windows 7. NOR-FieldPoint is supported in LabView 8.6 and Windows 7?

    Kind regards


    Hi natewkidd,

    I feel like some confusion between the operating systems running on a development computer (as Windows 7) and real-time operating systems that run on our real time (such as the PS-2000) controllers. I will do my best to clear up this confusion first answering your questions.

    (1) what is the difference between 2009 LabView real-time and LabView 2009?

    LabVIEW Real-time 2009 is actually a software officially known as 2009 LabVIEW Real-time which is installed after the LabVIEW 2009 development software to allow the user to develop and deploy applications in real time on targets in real time as your PS-2000. You can consider the LabVIEW Real-time 2009 almost as a plug-in for LabVIEW 2009 deployment and development of real-time applications.

    (2) if I have a PS-2000 on the ethernet network and to use a computer that is running Windows 7 and LabView 2009 for record and display data, will I still be able to communicate with the network FieldPoint screws write FieldPoint to my Windows 7 computer?

    If you go just to use the PS-2000 as a network module (NOT to deploy a real-time application to run on the PS 2000 itself), you should be able to communicate with him using just the read/write FieldPoint screw on your Windows 7 with LabVIEW 2009 machine and the driver NOR-FieldPoint 6.0.5. In this case, you actually do not need the Module Time since you do not deploy the application to the target in real time.

    About the PS-2000 unsupported beyond LabVIEW 8.5.1, is because the controller's memory is not large enough to hold the software that is installed on the controller with LabVIEW 8.6.x Module real-time and LabVIEW Real-time Module 2009. For more information on this, you can check this knowledge base article.

    I hope it's useful! Let me know if you have any other questions.

  • measure the angular speed, angle and trigger using a gyroscopic sensor breakout board and LabView data acquisition

    How to measure the angular velocity, the angle and trigger using a gyroscopic sensor breakout board and LabView data acquisition?

    There is a single channel data acquisition code which measures the angular velocity, angle and flexibility using a gyroscopic sensor breakout board and acquisition of LabView data attached to this, I need a help to creat two-channel data acquisition code?


    Attached is a vi that you can use in order to read the measured angular position of an encoder.

  • Compatibility of boards of daughter BasicTx and BasicRx with USRP2920 and LabView

    Thank you


    They will work, but you must use property nodes to configure them. No is no LO so ther is no center frequency setting. I and Q are separate channels so you must separate them and treat them as such. There are no gain as the boards primarily provide access to the ADC.

    While it is for 2011, I doubt that they decided to remove 64-bit compatibility as they went forward as 64-bit has become more rather than less demand.  In this document,notes LabVIEW Simulation Interface Toolkit does not support 64 bit versions of MATLAB application software."

    The extent of the compatiblitly for 32 - bit, I'd take a peek at: http://digital.ni.com/public.nsf/allkb/D174674A91E5536286257428005C2426

    The OP's question was SIT support 64 - bit version of LabVIEW and 64-bit version of the MATLAB/Simulink itself, not the operating system software.

    Document in your second link is on a completely different topic to have API for LabVIEW and MATLAB/Simulink/RTW (well, mostly Simulink & RTW). Here is the relevant link for the 32-bit compatibility: http://digital.ni.com/public.nsf/allkb/049295038FF0EE2A86257A06006B2DAD is no SIT 64-bit.

    Other underlying issues is that Pharlap does not have a 64-bit version. Finally, simulations are better performed on some RTOS (embedded PXI) for a deterministic execution rather than PC operating systems.

    You have some things you have to look in:

    • When you have installed the software, he was installing a USB > dll Com Port virtual as FTDIchip or similar? If so, when connect you your device, it will reveal itself as a normal COM (new) Port in Device Manager. You then try to talk to this COM port.
    • If you try to use the USB native on the map (as MAX has detected for you), then you will need to use the code in the .NET framework provided by the manufacturer (probably written in c#) and do your own builders in LabVIEW. If you have never done this before, it's not trivial.

    I would call the manufacturer and just tell them what you're trying to do. They have probably treated before LabVIEW and can have an example to help you get started.

    Edit: for fun, I followed the link you provided (which doesn't really). I searched "LabVIEW" of their site and indeed has achieved several successes. There is one thing that I downloaded (can't resist looking at code) was a gigantic turd. However, it doesn't use a standard Com port.

  • Implement and control 'meter' in S7 - 300 by the OPC and LabVIEW

    Hello world

    I use a S7-300 PLC and OPC Server for my projects. I have a problem: S7 - 300 has a meter module which digital signal of County. I only can implemented using SIMATIC STEP 7. Can I set up the meter module using only the server OPC and LabVIEW

    does anyone have a solution or an idea for my problem?

    could you please help me...

    Thank you

    Hi Echion,

    NOR-DAQ (MX) is used only for material OR: no you can not use it.

    To program the controller you must use the right programming environment. For Siemens S7, you need to use Simatic (or perhaps some other 3rd party software supporting IEC61131). Point.

    The OPC server is used only for the exchange of data. This is no interface programming!

  • LCD, extented and Labview controls


    I use a LCD series (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9395) associated with a TTL - USB converter (http://www.miniinthebox.com/fr/cp2102-usb-2-0-vers-uart-ttl-convertisseur-6pin-serie-du-module_p3910... and labview with VI No. 1.) Sending simple commands such as VI No. 1 works well. My problem is that I do not know how to send orders Extended Page 2 here https://www.sparkfun.com/datasheets/LCD/SerLCD_V2_5.PDF.

    For example, as I understand the datasheet, I need to send 124 128 to disable the brightness of the screen. If I type "124 128" in VI n ° 1 the LCD displays "124128.  I get the same result with VI n ° 2.

    If anyone know what I can try next?

    Thanks a lot.


    It seems that these values (124 and 128) are the decimal equivalent of the byte to transmit 0x7C and 0x80. It is not possible to say with certainty from your images, but most likely you send the characters of ASCII text for '1' '2' '4' and '1' '2' '8 '. Since then, they appear on the screen that is certainly what is happening.

    In your second pop VI on the string constants and select hexadecimal display in the context menu. Then type the values hex 7 c and 80.

    I'm trying to record changes in voltage as low as 0.0003V but using the wizard DAQ, I seem to be limited to a sensitivity of 0.002V.  This is the limit of real sensitivity or have I missed something?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi DCAM77,

    Thanks for joining the forums!

    The PCI or 6023E has a 12-bit ADC.  In other words, it can make the difference between 4096 (2 ^ 12) different levels within the range of cards.  The card you have has a selectable range by ± 10 V, ± 5 V, ± 500 mV or ±50 mV software.

    This means that the minimum detectable variation will be 4 mV, 20 mV, 244 µV or 24, depending on the chosen range µV.

    You should be able to use the ± 500 mV or ±50 mV to get the least significant bit (LSB) value, you need, even if it means that your signal is located between these values.  If not, then you need to consider other materials to the application, or the addition of external circuits across the signal.

  • Error-603 occurred While Building DLL under Windows XP and LabVIEW 8.6.1

    Error-603 to the DLL of the building.
    A component required for the Application Builder does not support the required functionality. This could have been caused by an older version of LabVIEW installation after installing this version. To correct this problem, reinstall the latest version of LabVIEW.

    Possible reasons:
