DMC has extensive experience connecting PLCs to LabVIEW on Windows and Real-Time targets. PLC-controlled assembly lines often require testing for quality. Many applications have the need to incorporate high-speed DAQ and complicated processing into end-of-line (EOL) testers. Because PLCs are ill-equipped to handle large arrays of data or run complex algorithms, it is common to augment a PLC-controlled operation with a more powerful and intelligent DAQ controller. This is also a great opportunity...
