“For a long time we focused on making additional things possible with LabVIEW, rather than furthering the goal of helping engineers automate measurements quickly and easily,” said NI co-founder Jeff Kodosky. “Now we are squarely addressing this with the introduction of LabView NXG. Common applications can use a simple configuration-based approach, while more complex applications can use the full open-ended graphical programming capability of the LabView language, G.”
For example, for bench-top measurement, there are non-programming workflows to acquire and iteratively analyse measurement data. Behind the scenes, code is automatically generated. “Engineers can drag and drop a section of code equivalent to 50 lines of text-based code,” said NI.
Within the editor, micro-interactions, user interface objects based on vector graphics and zooming capabilities have been streamlined.
For large, complex and distributed test and embedded applications, features include enhanced working with standard internet protocol, and communications protocols such as IEC 61131-3, OPC UA and the secure DDS messaging standard.
“Whether you are buying LabView for the first time or have been on an active service contract for years, you have access to both LabView NXG 1.0 and LabView 2017.” said NI.
NI on LabView NXG 1.0
LabView NXG is the next generation of LabView . This version minimises time to measurement with your data acquisition devices and bench-top instruments with engineering workflows for acquiring and visualising data sets – programming optional. When needed, you can transition to a development approach to customise your test and measurement system.
NI on LabView 2017
LabView simplifies hardware integration so that you can rapidly acquire and visualise data sets from virtually any I/O device, whether by NI or a third-party. Combined with a graphical programming syntax that reduces programming time, LabVIEW 2017 streamlines complex system design with tools and IP at the forefront of today’s technology.
