1 Workshop 7 of 7 Welcome!

2 Today's Topics Data Acquisition MAX DAQ Assistant Express VI DAQmx API Create Task Configure Task Configure Trigger Start Task Read/Write Close Task Sampling Mode, Rate and Size myDAQ Activity

3 Data Acquisition (DAQ) 1.Signal 2.Terminal Block 3.Cable 4.DAQ Device 5.Computer 3

4 Data Acquisition (DAQ) with myDAQ 1.Signal 2. myDAQ 3.Computer 4 USB 3.5mm cable

5 NI-DAQmx Driver level software Detects DAQ devices Installs NI-DAQmx functions in LabVIEW Measurement & Automation Explorer Configure and test DAQ device DAQ Assistant Configurable Express VI used to create a DAQ application DAQmx API Provides a set of VIs to program DAQ applications Data Acquisition (DAQ): Software

6 Measurement & Automation Explorer Configure and test DAQ device Verify: - Installed devices - Installed software -Available remote devices Access wiring diagrams

7 Devices and Interfaces- list of installed devices (on local computer is under My System) Device currently installed Device previously installed but not currently installed Device ????? Measurement & Automation Explorer My System – the local computer; the one you are currently using Remote Systems – computers or devices (cRIO, PXI) that are available to communicate with local computer through the internet

8 Demonstration: Using Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX) - Plug in your myDAQ and verify you can see it in MAX

9 DAQ terminology Task: DAQmx’s method of organizing Analog Input, Analog Output, Digital Input, Digital Output under- the-hood; cannot have AO and AI in the same task Channel: physical connection on the DAQ device; place where the wire(s) connect Virtual Channel: DAQmx’s representation of a corresponding physical channel Sampling Rate (Hz): how quickly a data point (sample) is acquired or generated. Sample Mode: method of acquiring data- one point, chunks or continuously 9

10 DAQ Assistant Quick way to create a VI that acquires data. Place DAQ Assistant on block diagram -> configuration window will pop up -> configure your device -> press OK and LabVIEW will build the DAQ task 10

11 Demonstration: Configuring the DAQ Assistant

12 DAQmx API DAQmx API: set of DAQ functions 12

13 DAQ: Basic Flow 13 Configure Task Acquire or Generate Data Clear Task Create Task Start Task A basic DAQmx application involves the following process: only do read/write within the loop

14 DAQ: Example 14

15 ELVISmx - Driver on top of DAQmx specifically for myDAQ and ELVIS instruments

16 myDAQ Activity: Audio Equalizer https://decibel.ni.com/content/docs/DOC

17 myDAQ Activity: Audio Equalizer https://decibel.ni.com/content/docs/DOC-8435 DAQ Assistant 2: - Output >> Voltage - Signal Output Range: -2 to 2 V - Samples to Write: Generation Mode: Continuous 17 Filters -Lowpass: -Cutoff Frequency 400 Hz -Bandpass: -Low cutoff frequency: 450 -High cutoff frequency: Bandpass: -Low cutoff frequency: High cutoff frequency: DAQ Assistant 1: -Input >>Voltage -Signal Input Range: -2 to 2 V -Acquisition Mode: Continuous -Samples to Read : 20k -Rate (Hz): 100k Spectral Measurements - Power Spectrum Simulate Signal -Add Noise -Amplitude: 0 -Noise Amplitude: 0.6 -Sampling Rate: 100,000 -Number of Samples: 20,000

18 Demonstration: Completed Audio Equalizer
