PLC-LabVIEW Industrial Communication

Posted in Allen Bradley PLC Programming, Consumer Goods, Data Analysis, Data Mining, and Reporting, Food and Beverage, LabVIEW Programming, LabVIEW Programming for Real-Time and FPGA, LabVIEW Vision Application Development, Manufacturing Automation and Intelligence, PLC Programming, Siemens S7 PLC Programming, Test and Measurement, Test and Measurement Automation, Vision Inspection

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...
