Hi
I would like to know that if the output of external temperature and humidity sensors of Dr.DAQ be used by Labview directly?

Here is an example :

Hello

You can use LabVIEW with the DrDAQ.

See section 3 of http://www.picotech.com/document/pdf/drdaq-en.pdf for details of the programming interface.

There is an example VI available in the software development kit, which can be downloaded from http://www.picotech.com/software.html

Thanks Robin
But I am using Labview 8.5 now. The drdaq_example.vi cant be opened in this version.
Actually I want to use DrDAQ to measure temperature and humidity. Can I follow the program shows in the example I posed before to achive my goal?

Thanks for your support

Hi

The example you mentioned is not for the DrDAQ, so you would not be able to use it without modifying it to use the relevant DLL functions.

I have opened and saved the examples in Labview 8.2, so hopefully you will now be able to open them.

Otherwise you can create your own VI using the information in the User's Guide.
