I am using Balzers quadrapole mass spectrometer. As my project I want to get data from Quadstar 422 to the labview with DDE (direct data exchange) But I do not have any idea how to start and how to make my design path. I would be greatfull if some LabVIEW experts help.
note:every small help is also good for me. I am new user of Labview.
It sounds like Quadstar is a program which communicates with the mass spectrometer. DDE is an interface for communicating between software. LabVIEW can communicate with any program which has a DDE interface. I'm not sure of the specifics of the mass spectrometer in question, but some hardware devices only have a proprietary communications protocol that only the manufacturer's software can use, so often the only way to use LabVIEW in that situation is if the device's software has an interface like DDE.
