Applications

This is an advanced platform for Datalogging, Management and Monitoring. The platform consists of multiple modules and applications can be used within different areas, such as Process Control, Automation Systems, Home Automation, Smart Houses and Buildings, IoT applications, Industry 4.0 applications, etc. The platform supports LabVIEW, Visual Studio/C#, DAQ devices from National instruments, Arduino and Raspberry Pi.

Databases such as Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL and MariaDB are supported.

Web Services or REST APIs have been developed with LabVIEW and PHP. REST Client API have been developed for LabVIEW and Visual Studio/C#.

 

Multiple Applications and Services have been made, Among other things, different LabVIEW DAQmx Applications. Several LabVIEW applications have been made which supports DAQmx hardware (I/O modules and DAQ devices from National Instruments) out of the box. These applications are presented below. You can also freely download the LabVIEW source code, the database and other services made.

 

Datalogging and Monitoring Examples

Here you find some basic of examples in LabVIEW and Visual Studio/C#. Different Apps for Data Logging and Data Monitoring are presented. The data is stored in SQL Server - both local and using Microsoft Azure.

LabVIEW Apps

Different LabVIEW Apps are shown below. You can download the entire LabVIEW code as well.

LabVIEW App 1: Data Logging and Monitoring App

Do you need to Log Data? Try this Datalogging and Monitoring Application. The Application Plots and Log Data from different DAQmx DAQ devices from National Instruments, such as USB-6008, USB-6001, etc. You can Log Data for up till 32 Channels (depending on the DAQ device you are using). You can log Data to a File or a SQL Server Database.

 

The Application is made with LabVIEW, but you dont need LabVIEW in order to use it. You can also Monitoring the Data using an iPad or an Android device, etc.
