I am trying to import Vector Cantech BLF logging files into LabView.  Does anyone know of a converter or process to do such a thing?

Good day!


National Instruments offer a series of Data Plugins to extend the data file acces capabilities of NI products such as LabVIEW, DIAdem and NI Data Finder. Among these dataplugins, there are two for Vector products.


Check the following links to learn how to use Data Plugins with LabVIEW:


And the following two to download the relevant Data Plugin (I don't know which version of the MDF file you are using)


Hope that helps!

Hi all,


Is there is any data Plugin for Vector BLF files.


MDF plugins only supporting Vector Logfiles but, I need to read BLF files with Labview.


Please tell me if there is any data plugin can read the .BLF files.

The Vector BLF Format is supported in DIAdem through the CAN Log Converter. I would direct any questions related to that to the DIAdem Forum.


Vector BLF format is not supported in LabVIEW beyond the resources Luis linked above.

Dear Joey S,


Thank you so much for your reply.


I tried with DIAdem buslog converter, it is working fine.

But, I want to read with Labview environment because I need to create .exe (Installer) after creating VI.
