Customizable UI in DMC's Flex Framework

Posted in Data Analysis, Data Mining, and Reporting, LabVIEW Programming, Test and Measurement, Test and Measurement Automation

DMC’s Flex Framework is a powerful tool that improves our development time for complex projects, and it provides our clients with access to an abundance of functional code modules. Projects have the potential to utilize our DMCquencer logic, User Access Level logic, module grid viewer, and many other code modules. One pitfall for large and complex project frameworks is that they come with a predesigned and constrained User Interface (UI) that the new project must also adopt. The result is an...

8-UP ECU Flashing Station

Posted in Automated Test Stand Design, Data Analysis, Data Mining, and Reporting, LabVIEW Programming, LabVIEW Vision Application Development, Test and Measurement, Test and Measurement Automation

Electronic Control Units (ECUs) are embedded modules that perform a wide range of essential functions within modern vehicles.  ECUs run firmware (embedded software) that gives ECUs their “intelligence” and governs their behavior and capabilities. The process of installing or updating this firmware on an ECU is commonly referred to as “flashing”. ECU Flashing is an essential process that transforms ECU hardware into a fully functional controller prior to being...

Oven Temperature Monitoring with National Instruments Compact RIO and Microsoft SQL

Posted in Data Analysis, Data Mining, and Reporting, LabVIEW Programming, Test and Measurement, Test and Measurement Automation

DMC developed a temperature monitoring system designed to monitor and record approximately twenty industrial oven systems for the purpose of curing automotive sealant materials. Due to the nature of product development for these materials, it is critical that the curing process be precisely monitored for temperature fluctuation. The client found, experientially, that the most common failure mode of product samples was rooted in temperature fluctuations during the curing process. DMC was tasked with...

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...
