•Developed to help new users learn LabVIEW fast
•Uses hands-on, practical problems to make learning easier
•Covers all areas of data acquisition with easy to use, step-by-step guides
•A modular structure allows you to focus only on the areas that interest you
The first chapter of this book is designed to introduce students to the
general concepts of NI LabVIEW through the development of a general program that
acquires analog input data. The rest of the book introduces you to general
concepts of data measurement and generation using LabVIEW’s configuration
approach for automatic data acquisition.
This primer has a unique modular structure that does not require the chapters to be completed in succession. After students complete the first chapter they are free to complete whichever sections they would like, in the order they would like to complete them, allowing students to focus on the topics that are of most interest to them.
Each section in the primer introduces you to a new data acquisition topic. After an introduction to the topic, a program is developed within this topic using step by step instructions. Each chapter concludes with several additional practical application problems, where the data acquisition program is given, but the detailed steps to create the program are left to you.
Example problems are provided for all modes of data acquisition, including analog input and output, digital input and output, and counters. For example, the problems show many aspects of analog input, such as hardware and software timing, buffered and triggered acquisition, and examples with common sensors, such as thermocouples and strain gages. Examples from other acquisition modes show how to drive many common output devices, such as stepper motors, servo motors, and DC motors, as well as software control programs, such as the PID compensator and pulse width modulation.
The book is suitable for professionals getting started in data acquisition and for courses involving instrumentation and measurements, experimental methods, and electrical project labs.
