test the simulink model


I'm currently testing a simulink model in veristand. I import the model into veristand and deploy code to the target. The model seems to work properly.  But I want to measure the time used for the model, I wonder so if it is possible to have a record with tracetoolkit.

Someone has an idea?

Thank you...

Check out this Execution Trace Tool Custom device provided on the page modules VeriStand. Add this device to your system definition file to programmatically configure, start and stop traces of execution that are sent to the host.

You can examine these tracks to see approximately how long your model is complete by looking for the thread named after your model. For example, if your model is called sinewave, you should see a thread named sinewave_MODEL LOOP. To track the performance of your model, keeping in mind that there are a small amount of additional overhead in the loop of model before program us your model.

  • Veristand Simulink model initialization

    VeriStand 2013 has now the ability to initialize the settings of the Simulink model (reference: signals and initial Conditions in a Simulink model mapping).

    The question is: is it possible via API in LabVIEW calls?  I would like the user to be able to select the name of the initialization file in my host code.

    I have a temporary workaround to have the file name selected by the user copied to a temporary location / name defined in VeriStand System Explorer, but it is certainly not an elegant solution.

    Currently, the only way to change the parameter values by default for a system definition is:

    1. update the system definition to point to a different file.

    2. switch to update the contents of the file that is already stated in the system definition.

    #2 looks like the simpler approach recommended for your use case.

    One thing that might make your solution a little easier would be to use the index function in the template parameter initialization file. What you can do is the following:

    1. (optional) create. that various pattern files of calibration in advance you want to test. Name them sub1.txt, sub2.txt, etc. (or name them as you wish).

    2 configure your system definition to point to a calibration of empty template file named Main.txt.

    3. prior to deploying your system definition, change the main.txt file to add the following line (assuming that commas here because it's hard to type tabs in a web browser):


    You can also have multiple index files if you want to mix and match. Simply add extra lines.

    The advantages of this approach are:

    (a) you can easily use the pre-established model calibration files.

    (b) you don't have to copy the files autour

    (c) the write file you need to do before you deploy is very very simple.

  • Several screw-> a Simulink model

    Hi all is there,

    I am using LabVIEW as a UI for a model Simulink.

    According to the user's guide of LabVIEW Simulation Interface Toolkit-> 'using the Simulation Interface Toolkit, you can connect several screws.

    created on the host computer to the same Simulink model.

    And that's what I'm trying to do. I have a Simulink model test3.mdl and I have generated two screws: inputs.vi and display.vi.

    I have traced the commands and views of the two screws for the relevant parameters inside the Simulink model using the SIT connection manager, but trying to run both live and link them to the Simulink model to change the settings and display the results that I get a conflict, alone of the screw can be connected to the model at the same time Simulink.

    Does anyone know what are the steps to connect the two screws to the same Simulink model? SIT documentation claims that it can be done, but unfortunately, it does not explain how it can be done. The only examples are used to connect a vi to the model.

    Thanks in advance


    Hi James,

    In the end, I solved my problem with the second option, I told you before: using static variables to pass data between the two screws.

    But it was a little difficult to modify the values of the controls of the façade for the SIT to recognize the change in the value.

    I managed to achieve this by using the following structure for each of the controls of the fron inside the VI Panel where the SIT is running:

    In this case to write the value to the control called "Frequency", I have a variable shared 'f' that is written in the other VI where all data entries will be implemented. Then in the "Frequency" control properties, I bound the control to this variable shared 'f' And the using the structure of the image I managed to do the SIT react against changes in the 'Frequency' control and apply the new value to the Simulink Simulation.

    The truth is that I still do not understand why the SIT does not recognize the change in the control without using all this stuff, but it's working now.

    So could you clarify my doubts about this issue and the problem with the two panels with the SIT fron, that would be great.

    Thank you best regards &,.


  • Mapping to the signals and initial Conditions in a simulink model

    Hello world.  I am pretty competent with old Simulation Interface Toolkit (SIT) and I am moving to Veristand.  I have some basic questions that I think that know the answer, but who want to do some checks.

    First of all, when you map signals, such as the output of a block check, is it possible to make them available for mapping other that mark the test points?  At the bottom of this page, it is a bit ambiguous, but it seems to suggest that if I disable optimization option will appear any sudden without needing me to mark all test points.  The I am referring to something specific is the following, "Certain optimizations that you activate in Simulink can make a not available in NI VeriStand signal. You can disable these options for the entire model to all the signals available to probe, but the model memory footprint increases accordingly.  Alternatively, you can mark individual signals as test points in Simulink to maintain a very reduced memory footprint by keeping test-point available signals to probe. »

    My second question is in what regards the "initial condition" parameters  There was a problem in SIT (although National Instruments has not agree with me at the time that it was a problem), where you can map the controls to these settings, but at the moment where you have been given access to the model, the initialize function had already been called, which means that your maps were useless.  I see that I can still map to these settings in Veristand, and I wonder if the same problem exists.  I'm not quite to the point where I can start trying to change these but I'm hoping to avoid the days of debugging, I lost on this whole by learning to SIT.

    As a follow-up on the second question, to SIT, I could find the C code (located in nidll_main.c) that was called whenever the 'play' button and add a second call to the initialize function.  So let me change the initial conditions without recompiling my entire model which, in my case, would be unworkable. If this problem still someone was able to implement a similar solution?

    Optimization, you can disable in Simulink (TM) I believe is called Signal storage reuse. To my knowledge you either need to use individual test on son points, or you must disable overall re-use of storage of signal for your model.

    Regarding the second question, the question still exists in NI VeriStand. This is something that we are aware of what we expect to address in a future version of NI VeriStand. The workaround you describe might possibly work if you do enough digging in the C code. Currently VeriStand charge and then initializes the model at the same time, and initializing code can read the values of model parameter. If you check out this code and move to the first call to the main function of the calendar, you could allow for the adjustment of the parameters of the model before the model starts.

  • Can I change the period of 'model' of a Simulink model running with the model interface toolkit (MIT) programmatically?

    I would like to be able to programmatically change the time step, a Simulink model uses when it is called by the model Interface Toolkit LabVIEW. The time step is a template parameter or a signal of model. Is this possible to do?

    It is not possible. The timestep for the model is fixed and compiled in the model. You can do things like relaxation model subsystems based on a value entry or event within the model.

  • Better model to buy to test the app

    Hi all

    I work on the calendar app, we want to buy a device, including the model and version you suggest for testing applications.

    Thank you

    You will not be able to test the interaction touch screen with two models, so you will be left to test that on the Simulator, which is very different.

    I have seen no figures for sales of models, but I have the impression to the United Kingdom, it is that the 9300, which I think was intended for consumers, is a bigger seller than the 9700, which seem to be intended for corporate customers.

    If you were really stuck on 1 model by getting only, and then I actually went a Torch 9800.  It has a keyboard, so you can interact just by using the keyboard and trackpad, simulating a non touchscreen phone, or use the touch screen.

    For the CDMA GSM verses, see wikipedia:



    In Europe, all the phone networks are GSM, then you can take your MOBILE phone anywhere in Europe, and it will work (even if the cost can be much higher).  IN North America, the networks are mainly CDMA I think.  But you can't pick up a phone CDMA in Europe - it just doesn't work. A large number of phones will work everywhere, (usually in the lands of BlackBerry, phones 'the world', where the model numbers to end at 30).  There are other differences in function between the capabilities of devices, but this has never bothered me because I tend to develop for Europe (mobile PHONES) only.

  • RTF model: If condition to test the XML tag exists only on the current XML node


    I have a RICH model based on an XML file as follows:

    + < ShipAddress >... < / ShipAddress > +.
    + < order > +.
    + < OrderNum >... < / OrderNum > +.

    + < OrderNum >... < / OrderNum > +.
    + < ShipAddress >... < / ShipAddress > +.
    + < / order > +.
    + < / invoice > +.

    As you can see, the tag * < ShipAddress > * there are two
    -Sub * < invoice > * = > global shipping address
    -Sub * < Order > * = > shipping address to you for Sales Order

    In an XML file, I can only have < ShipAddress > at a certain level, for example
    -the tag * < invoice > < ShipAddress > * appear in XML that if we have a unique address for the invoice
    -the tag * < order > < ShipAddress > * appear in XML that if we have more than one address for the invoice

    Logically, in my RTF model, I want to print the address of delivery at the level if one header tag * < invoice > < ShipAddress > * is in XML format.
    I tried a lot of syntax If but none works according to the needs:
    + <? If.: / ShipAddress? > + = > always returns FALSE
    + <? If: / / ShipAddress? > = > returns TRUE when < order > < ShipAddress > exists
    + <? If: ShipAddress? > = > returns TRUE when < order > < ShipAddress > exists

    The only syntax that seems to work is:
    + <? If: / / Bill/ShipAddress? > +.
    But I prefer not not hardocde the name of the top-level tag.

    What si syntax to test the existence of a XML tag only in the current node (recursively)?

    Thanks in advance for helping me.

  • How to interface a simple way using LabVIEW 2009 simulink model and SIT?


    I finally found a way to use a template simulink with LabVIEW and the Toolbox to SIT, but I'm not satisfied.

    If you have any suggestions, the link of resource that I missed, please do not hesitate to answer

    Note that I do not know much about simulink, so that is my question seems stupid, let me know what

    Software configuration

    OS: Windows (not an RT target)

    LabVIEW 2009

    SIT 2009

    question 1: interfacing the model DLL (mapping considerations) with a driver VI

    We have created a model of DLL by using the 'Workshop in real time' tab in simulink.

    In LabVIEW, launch us the tool 'SIT connection manager' and try to use the DLL with a driver VI by mapping the e/s model for screw/lights orders.

    The fact is that I fail to connect to my controls/indicators VI/o model because they do not appear in the mapping dialog box.

    The simulink single objects that I managed to map are "constant" and "test points" while I need to edit the template simulink itself (example below)

    Are in e/s model, not considered as part of the parameters of the model? (this could make sense because the mapping says in fact that it operates on "model parameters")

    Is it possible to link the IO model VI commands/lights?


    -the "configure HW i/o mapping" dialog box allows me to map model e/s with e/s HW...

    -The examples also use these "constant" and "test points".

    2nd question: use of direct screw SIT

    I tried to use the DLL directly with the screws SIT (code example below)

    This kind of code works well on another project (target of 8.0/RT LV) but not on the current project (LV 2009/Windows)

    The second stage of the model never ends:

    -0-index of the loop works as expected (model doing its job).

    -index of the loop 1 starts normally, but execution is stuck in the 'SIT scheduler.vi.

    Then I have no choice that to kill LabVIEW ("Reset screws" windows appear if I try to stop/close them).

    Is there a reason that I do not see what explains this behavior?

    Thanks for reading.

    Any help appreciated.

    Kind regards


    I spent some time analyzing the VI driver as you suggested.

    Here are my findings.

    Question 1: the SIT connection manager does not pass to the model SW controls/indicators. Only, it allows the user map HW AIs/AOs.

    The only solution I found (to have a SW - for example a shared variable - object that is mapped to an input/output model) is to customize the VI driver that is scripted by the SIT Connection Manager ("_Baserate Loop.vi" in the flat sequence structure named "read code")

    Question 2: after spending some time in the VI driver, it seems that the VI to call right is not 'SIT scheduler.vi' but 'If SIT take model no time' (which uses the other as a Subvi)

    My conclusions are correct? If I use the API in the wrong way, please let me know.

    Kind regards

    Thank you very much in advance!

    Without a doubt, test the model. I joined a project that can help.

    While it is generally true that 1uOhm of resistance should not make a difference in a 'real' circuit, you're dealing with a behavioural model.  Modeling approach, the model may or may not be affected by small resistance added controlled sources.  A few branches inside these models can conduct current kA, amplify tensions 1000 x, etc..

    If the file has the extension .cir (i.e. import as a netlist PSpice and translated to the old format of netlist AWR), try to change the extension .sp, then import it a model HSPICE.  If it works, it can behave better.  Please see this chapter in our documentation for more information on importing cards: https://awrcorp.com/download/faq/english/docs/Users_Guide/importing_netlists.html

  • Run the Simulink Code on cRIO

    Hello world

    I wonder if anyone has a Mathworks Simulink model running on an RT target as cRIO.

    In other projects, I did it on the past using LabVIEW 2010 SP1 and Simulation Interface Toolkit (SIT). You would compile a Simulink model as a DLL, OUT or RTDLL and used on a loop timed with screws of the SIT

    What I read for LabVIEW 2014 speaks of model Interface Toolkit, but it always refers to the execution of the model compiled on a host PC.

    Does anyone know if it is possible to run the compiled DLL with MIT on an RT target?

    According to this , it seems possible, but requires you to use the verson 2014 of the MIT. And you seem to have to monitor during installation to choose the correct installation variant for the ability to select the right tools.

  • Prompts to save the sequential model; Unwanted.

    When you save one of my TestStand applications, I am invited to Save the SequentialModel.seq.  I have never recorded changes in the model of the sequence and do not want.

    What I must do to this application so that it uses the intact sequence not quick save the changes to the sequential model AND model?

    (1st post on a forum)


    Since you have never saved the sequential model my guess is that the test sequence you meet could create this problem.

    Try this:

    Open TestStand and open a new sequence (do not open your test sequence). Save.Do, you always get invited him to record the sequential model?

    If any problem then perhaps with the test sequence.

    If Yes, then simply fix TestStand.

    Normally this occurs so that the version of types (common to your test sequence and types of OR) is incremented in your test sequence.

    When you load your test in TestStand sequence it automatically detects that the types present in the sequential model is a lower version and prompts to save it. Its a feature, not a problem.

    You can use this tool to resolve the differences of type:


    Convert your test sequence to be compatible with the sequential model and this should solve the problem.

    I hope this helps.
