The Omega tempscan (I saw it on the Omega website as OMB-TEMPSCAN-1100) is its own data acquisition system.
So are you going to connect the thermocouples to the TC-120 and read them by way of the the FP-1000 network module?
Or are you going to connect them to the Omega tempscan and read them by way of RS-232 or RS-422?
It would be one way or the other.
Labview won't automatically detect the hardware either way. Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX) would detect the FP network module when you search for remote systems. You would have to right some code in Labview with fieldpoint read VI's to do something with the data. For the Omega tempscan, you will have to write even more code to be able to read the data into the computer's serial port.

yes i am going to connect the thermocouples but not exactly to the FP-TC-120(which is the io module) but to the FP-TB-3 (terminal base) which is connected to the IO module and yes these two combine connect to the FP-1000 network module and then i can read the data by way of RS 232 in a pc? thats what my plan.
