New Idea

Inspired by this post, and my own experience trying to debug a problem that only appeared when I compiled an RT executable, LabVIEW should warn the user when compiling a real-time application that contains property nodes that require access to the front panel, since those property nodes will not execute properly in an RT application and it can be very difficult to find the source of the problem if you don't know this.

Hi all, 

 

With the LabVIEW 2014 Real-Time Module release we included some RT-specific VI Analyzer tests- this is the output of the initial project Tanya mentioned. The block diagram is searched for "offending" gObjects that meet conditions defined by each test. The analyzer returns a report to the user listing the test failures with a description of the problem, and how to resolve the problem in the RT context.

 

You can find these tests after you install 2014 here: C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2014\project\_VI Analyzer\_tests\Real-Time Module\Front Panel Property and Invoke Nodes.llb

 

If anyone runs the tests, we welcome any feedback here.

Currently, you can view the console from MAX, but if you don't know what buttons to press... lets just say it's in there somewhere. My idea is to make it more accessible, such as a right mouse button feature off the RT Target.

I'm going to mark this as completed for the Network Browser use case and then the NI Linux Real-Time target case is captured in this newer post: http://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW-Real-Time-Idea-Exchange/Add-console-to-Linux-based-cRIO/idi-p/287113...

Many developers have the primary ethernet port of their development computer reserved for the corporate intranet/internet access.

Unfortunately, MAX and other tools like RT System Deployment Utility expect the targets to be connected to the same primary port for initial configuration, because they do not allow the specification of a local IP on which to exchange the UDP configuration packets.

Being able to select the ethernet port on which the RT system is connected, e.g. through a ring control populated with all available NICs and their local IPs, would facilitate devolopment enormously in such constellations, because the developer would not need to switch cables and IP configurations every time he needs to reconfigure the RT system.

 

Thanks,

Sebastian

Hi Everyone,

 

With the new NI Linux Real-Time based controllers released at NIWeek this year we include a USB Device port, which I think addresses the pain described in this post, allowing you debug/modify the target without messing with your existing Ethernet infrastructure. For more information you can read here: Ethernet over USB Connection for Simplified Target Configuration, Debugging, and Maintenance

Add a version number to RT EXE files

Status: Completed
by Active Participant gsussman on ‎02-10-2010 11:16 AM

When working in the Windows development environment the application builder has the ability to implement a version number for the built executable. Additionally LabVIEW has the ability to querry this version number through a property node. I would like to see this feature carried over to RT systems as well. It would be very helpful in determining what particular build of the startup.rtexe file is running on the target.

 

Status: Completed

Versioning is an option when you build a component definition file (.cdf), which includes an rtexe and its dependencies. This is an option when you build your rtexe in the Real-Time Application Properties dialog box>>Component Definition. Creating this file allows you to deploy the real-time application using MAX or programmatically with the LabVIEW System Configuration API. You can choose to manually specify the version number when you build the application or LabVIEW will Auto increment the version number each time you build. The first build would be 1.0.0.0 and the next time you build it, it may be 1.0.0.1...etc.

NI Daq 6008 and Labview

Status: Completed
by Member anouardz on ‎02-26-2015 05:36 AM

hello;

 

For the NI 6008 card sampling frequency equal to 10 kS / s and it has 8 analog inputs, but if I will use the 8 analog inputs simultaneously, what is the value of the new échantionnage frequency for each input analog obtained during an acquisition in labview?

Hi anouardz,

 

I think you might've accidentally posted in the wrong place. This forum area is for posting new ideas and suggested features for LabVIEW Real-Time. It looks like you found the right place though, in the Multifunction DAQ board: http://forums.ni.com/t5/Multifunction-DAQ/NI-Daq-6008-and-Labview/td-p/3095362 .
