LabVIEW-based Data Logger for Product Validation of Commercial Equipment

LabVIEW-based Data Logger for Product Validation of Commercial Equipment

Synchronizing data from multiple data logging instruments

Client – Manufacturer of commercial equipment

Challenge

The client already had a method in place to log data needed for validation testing.  However, this data was acquired from multiple independent data logging applications.  They needed something to aggregate the data and align/synchronize the data across multiple instruments.

Solution

Viewpoint developed a LabVIEW-based product validation solution that continued to utilize the existing data logging hardware, but uses software to aggregate & synchronize the data from multiple sources.  This simplifies post-processing.

Benefits

  • Synchronized & aggregated data from multiple instruments
  • Ability to add capability for new instruments later on
  • Real time graphing of all channels
  • Channel averaging across multiple instruments
  • Ability to save data acquisition configurations for future use
  • Faster channel configuration than current data logging applications

System Overview

The data logging software unifies the collection of data for a particular validation test.  The software configures each instrument, kicks them off, logs the data to a TDMS file, and also graphs data and displays real-time values.
