Enhancements to LabVIEW NXG enables customisation
Functionality for engineers developing and deploying automated test and measurement systems has been introduced with enhancements by National Instruments (NI) to its LabVIEW NXG engineering system design software.
Engineers can now test smarter with LabVIEW NXG, says NI, with quick instrument set-up, the ability to customise tests to a device’s specifications, and to view results from any web browser, on any device.
This new version of LabVIEW NXG introduces the WebVI, a VI type for building web-based user interfaces (UIs) that can be deployed to any web browser – PC, tablet or phone – with no plug-ins or installers. To reduce hardware configuration time, the new SystemDesigner feature automatically discovers connected hardware, displays installed drivers and directly links to available NI and third-party instrument drivers if they are not yet installed.
This latest release expands hardware support to thousands of box instruments and NI’s high-performance PXI modular instrumentation. Now, LabVIEW NXG also delivers programming capabilities such as object-oriented programming and integration with the industry-leading TestStand test management software, adds NI.
The company designed several features in LabVIEW NXG for use with existing LabVIEW applications without the need for extensive software refactoring. Engineers can reuse test code, including code written with LabVIEW NXG or LabVIEW, through a new package manager interface built on industry-standard package formats.
NI offers engineers and scientists a software-centric platform that incorporates modular hardware and an expansive ecosystem. This approach puts users in control of defining what they need to accelerate their system design within test, measurement and control, says the company.
