This manuscript will guide readers in essential LabVIEW graphical programming logic. It contains tricks of the trade programming skills or techniques, local variables, shift register as well as property node. Readers will learn about Auto scrolling and Auto updating of live synchronous data array; and transferring Real-Time data out of any iteration loop while the iteration is ongoing for offsite processing via EnQueue and DeQueue. This book also discusses some useful logic for numeric count up and count down using iteration For and While loops; polling and monitoring the user input control with Event Structure algorithm; and increasing the front panel display footprint with Tab Controls. Readers may gain the ability to incorporate them into their tasks-at-hand. Each of the hands-on unit is self-contained and can be postponed or visited asynchronously if desired.
For beginning and intermediate LabVIEW programmers, this introductory guide assumes no prior knowledge of LabVIEW. There are in-depth examples in every chapter, and all the answers and source code is provided on the accompanying CD-ROM.

This book provides a practical and accessible understanding of the fundamental principles of virtual instrumentation. It explains how to acquire, analyze and present data using LabVIEW (Laboratory Virtual Instrument Engineering Workbench) as the application development environment. The book introduces the students to the graphical system design model and its different phases of functionality such as design, prototyping and deployment. It explains the basic concepts of graphical programming and highlights the features and techniques used in LabVIEW to create Virtual Instruments (VIs). Using the technique of modular programming, the book teaches how to make a VI as a subVI. Arrays, clusters, structures and strings in LabVIEW are covered in detail. The book also includes coverage of emerging graphical system design technologies for real-world applications. In addition, extensive discussions on data acquisition, image acquisition, motion control and LabVIEW tools are presented. This book is designed for undergraduate and postgraduate students of instrumentation and control engineering, electronics and instrumentation engineering, electrical and electronics engineering, electronics and communication engineering, and computer science and engineering. It will be also useful to engineering students of other disciplines where courses in virtual instrumentation are offered. Key Features : Builds the concept of virtual instrumentation by using clear-cut programming elements. Includes a summary that outlines important learning points and skills taught in the chapter. Offers a number of solved problems to help students gain hands-on experience of problem solving. Provides several chapter-end questions and problems to assist students in reinforcing their knowledge.
(Note: a new file with improved images was uploaded 02/19/15) Effective LabVIEW Programming by Thomas Bress is suitable for all beginning and intermediate LabVIEW programmers. It follows a “teach by showing, learn by doing” approach. It demonstrates what good LabVIEW programs look like by exploring a small set of core LabVIEW functions and common design patterns based on a project drawn from the Certified LabVIEW Developer exam. These patterns build on each other. They provide a firm starting point for most beginning and intermediate projects. Overall, the presentation emphasizes how to use the dataflow paradigm of LabVIEW to create effective programs that are readable, scalable and maintainable. The concepts presented in this book are reinforced by eleven problem sets with full solutions. This book will improve your fluency in LabVIEW and, in the process, will teach you how to “think” in LabVIEW.

Intelligent Control with LabVIEWTM is a fresh and pragmatic approach to the understanding of a subject often clouded by too much mathematical theory. It exploits the full suite of tools provided by LabVIEWTM, showing the student how to design, develop, analyze, and visualize intelligent control algorithms quickly and simply. Block diagrams are used to follow the progress of an algorithm through the design process and allow seamless integration with hardware systems for rapid deployment in laboratory experiments. This text delivers a thorough grounding in the main tools of intelligent control: fuzzy logic systems; artificial neural networks; neuro-fuzzy systems; evolutionary methods; and predictive methods. Learning and teaching are facilitated by: extensive use of worked examples; end of chapter problems with separate solutions; and provision of intelligent control tools for LabVIEWTM.
LabVIEWTM has become one of the preeminent platforms for the development of data acquisition and data analysis programs. LabVIEWTM: A Developer’s Guide to Real World Integration explains how to integrate LabVIEW into real-life applications. Written by experienced LabVIEW developers and engineers, the book describes how LabVIEW has been pivotal in solving real-world challenges. Each chapter is self-contained and demonstrates the power and simplicity of LabVIEW in various applications, from image processing to solar tracking systems. Many of the chapters explore how exciting new technologies can be implemented in LabVIEW to enable novel solutions to new or existing problems. The text also presents novel tricks and tips for integrating LabVIEW with third-party hardware and software. Ideal for LabVIEW users who develop stand-alone applications, this down-to-earth guide shows how LabVIEW provides solutions to a variety of application problems. It includes projects and virtual instrumentation for most of the programs and utilities described. Many of the authors’ own software contributions are available on the accompanying CD-ROM.
LabVIEW is commonly used for data acquisition, instrument control, and industrial automation on a variety of platforms. King'sIntroduction to Data Acquisition with LabVIEWteaches how to automatically measure physical properties with a computer and sensors or instruments. It uses numerous examples and the National Instruments (NI) Corporation LabVIEW graphical programming environment to lower the barriers to learning and to reduce the time required to successfully automated measurements.LabVIEW (short for Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Engineering Workbench) is a program development application, much like C or FORTRAN. LabVIEW, is however, different from those applications in one important respect. Other programming systems used text-based languages to create lines of code, while LabVIEW uses a graphical programming language, G, to create programs in block diagram form. King'sIntroduction to Data Acquisition with LabVIEWis a comprehensive, up to date text that can be purchased with or with out the LabVIEW software.
This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. The goal of this book is to help students learn to use LabVIEW™ on their own. Learning with LabVIEW is the textbook that accompanies the LabVIEW Student Edition from National Instruments, Inc. This textbook, as well as the LabVIEW software (LabVIEW software is not included with this book), has undergone a significant revision from the previous edition. Learning with LabVIEW teaches basic programming concepts in a graphical environment and relates them to real-world applications in academia and industry. Understanding and using the intuitive and powerful LabVIEW software is easier than ever before. As you read through the book and work through the examples, we hope you will agree that this book is more of a personal tour guide than a software manual.
