Ti-E microscope drivers

Is there someone who works with the new Nikon Ti-E microscope with Labview?
Are there any ready made drivers for it?
Are ther drivers for the older TE2000-E Nikon Microscope?
Thanks.

Re: Ti-E microscope drivers

Hi Liort,

Unfortunately it does not look like there are any drivers for the instruments that you mentioned. 3rd party instrument drivers for LabVIEW are to be found here.

However, this does not mean that you cannot use the instrument with LabVIEW. You can create your own instrument drivers as long as you have the commands that are needed to communicate with the device. There is a tutorial on how you can do this here.

Hi Guy,

As Rasheel mentioned, there are not instrument drivers available at ni.com/idnet. Have you tried to develop your own as Rasheel suggested? If you have the manual for the device you should be able to write the commands to it that you wish using serial, gpib, Ethernet or however else you planed to connect to the device.  Best of luck!

Re: Ti-E microscope drivers

Have u started? I'm about to write a labview program controlling TiE, maybe we can work together and share the information? I'm now collecting the resources that people have done about controlling microscope with Labview on the internet.

Re: Ti-E microscope drivers

I found out the microscope is connected to PC with a USB connection. I also got the Nikon software for controlling. However, I really need to customize control by the Labivew. Could u give me some hints that where shall I start on writing a driver?

Re: Ti-E microscope drivers

Hi There, I am facing the same problem you reported a few years back: I need to control nikon's translation stage (TI-S-E) from software I can customize, labview preferred... Have you progressed on this matter since you posted this? Thanks!

Re: Ti-E microscope drivers

Hi,

 

I am not familiar with this particular drive, but you will get more help if you create a new forum instead of posting on one that is pretty old.  If you do not hear back from the people who originally posted in this forum, I would encourage you to create a new forum on this topic.

 

Regards,
