Fieldpoint (cFP) and Compact Fieldpoint (cFP) are PAC (programmable automation controller) for command and control industrial applications. They come in the form of a backplane hardened, 4 to 8 slots, to connect modules: DIO, DAQ, relays, voltage or current outputs, Ethernet, serial and other protocols, blocks connections and programmable controllers.

You can use Compact Fieldpoint with a programmable controller in LabVIEW to create an independent PAC, or else use without controller connected to a computer to order by LabWindows/CVI or LabVIEW.

What is LabVIEW?

LabVIEW LabVIEW is a development environment specialized in industrial and scientific applications. Its uniqueness is that it relies on the G language, created by National Instruments, which is fully graphical. It can create complex software, while facilitating the programming and thus reduce development time. Through its library of functions for data acquisition, instrumentation, analysis of mathematical measures, but also through the rapid creation of GUIs and coding simplified, the engineer has more time to focus on specific functions of the instrumentation communication and measurement analysis.

LabVIEW is particularly suitable for developing control, supervision, test and measurement systems.

What is LabWindows/CVI?

LabWindows/CVI LabWindows is a development environment in C language for the implementation of test systems, measurement and instrumentation. Thus, it is possible to enjoy both the power and precision of the C language but also libraries of functions for instrumentation and signal processing from National Instruments.

With LabWindows / CVI, you can develop:

  • software for Windows (exe) or UNIX Linux,
  • libraries (DLL, Active X,. NET),
  • instrument drivers,
  • on embedded targets,
  • on real-time target.

What is Measurement Studio

Measurement Studio pour Visual Studio C++, C# et Visual Basic These are libraries of graphical controls and functions for the rapid development of industrial or laboratory solutions containing .NET technology used directly in Visual Studio, to have power tools National Instruments software and instrumentation functions for C++ , C# or Visual Basic.

What is TestStand

TestStandTestStand is a instruction sequences engine and a development environment for creating a test sequencer evolved several common test for different products. We have a generic software that loads, as the test product, sequences specifying actions, tests and tolerances, and components (such as DLLs) for communication with the hardware.
