New driver from HBM offers simple integration


Now available from HBM is the LabVIEW driver, which for the first time allows HBM’s QuantumX, SomatXR, PMX and MGCplus data acquisition systems to be conveniently integrated into LabVIEW measurement and control system design software.

The new driver simplifies instrument control and reduces test program development time, meaning data from multiple devices and channels can now be acquired with only eight Virtual Instruments (VIs). These VIs come complete with ready-made user interfaces for device scan and channel selection, which help make this software extremely suitable for users.

Designed to suit all levels of programming knowledge, HBM has supplied detailed examples and documentation on the new driver, as well as a video on how to use LabVIEW with HBM data acquisition systems, to ensure users are quickly and simply guided to the desired measurement results.

Customers using different data acquisition systems from HBM can also save time, as general commands such as device scan, channel selection and measurement are the same for all systems, so that no re-programming of these components is required when changing over to the new hardware.

Device specific LabVIEW drivers are also available from HBM, including the QuantumX CANape Driver which, when integrated with QuantumX data acquisition, enables users to record high-speed signals from external sensors with measurement rates of up to 96,000.
