I have NI USB-6343 X Series Data Acquisition, I will collect data from loadcell, and according to the specific loadcell value, i will trigger a motor controller(which has also labview drivers), and tell motor controller to stop and go home position,
My questions are indicated below:
1-) Motor controller is connected to PC, DAQ is also connected to PC, but there is no direct connection btw the motor controller and DAQ, should i keep as it is? OR do i need to buy some equipment such as special cable?
2-) Motor is DC motor, but loadcell gives analog signal. So while triggering: Do i need to convert load cell's analog signal to digital signal?
3-) Do you have any labview samples smilar to this?
My all equipments are indicated below:
Motor Controller= Newport SMC100CC Single-axis DC motor controller/driver
Motor Linear Stage= Newport MFA-CC Miniature Linear Stage DC motor
DAQ= NI USB-6343, X Series Data Acquisition
Loadcell = Transducer Techniques, GSO-100 (Tension&Compression)
Loadcell Signal Conditioner = Transducer Techniques STAND ALONE / BENCH TOP, 0 to ±10VDC OUTPUT
I forgot to ask the most important question,
Does every device triggerable? If not how do i understand that my motor controller could be triggered by DAQ ?
Firstly thank you for response.
I am confused with this issue: In order to trigger motor controller, Dont you think that i need a cable between DAQ and Motor Controller?
And Dont you think motor controller should have triggering option? Or is there such an option with devices?
