I'm sort of new to LabVIEW/a student and during my internship at a company I got an assignment to develop a remote control interface for the Weiss WT3 climate chamber for their tests. I'm using LabVIEW 2014 64-bit.
My previous experience in LabVIEW has been using the NI USB-6211 for remote controlling power supplies with analog voltage control and that is a bit more straight forward, I think.
Anyone with experience in this area that has any VIs that I can take a look at?
Here are some of the things I'm unsure of
Thanks for the reply.
Sorry if the question doesn't make sense. I'm trying to articulate myself as best as I can (english is not my native language).
What I meant was that the oven comes with some software bundled with it to control the chamber via Ethernet, and I was thinking whether or not I am supposed to make LabVIEW communicate with that software (internally on the PC) or I should focus on somehow communicating with the chamber directly from LabVIEW.
I have succesfully used the application for remote controlling the chamber (although it does its job poorly, and has a lot of problems)
Unfortunately I'm not certain the manual is even available as a digital version anywhere. I know I've search a lot on the Internet for it, but without results. I only have a hard copy in the lab.
If you are looking for a pdf version of the protocol for rs232, please find the attached.
I can comminicate with the device(wt180/40) from labview. I am using rs232 interface to communicate to the device.
