Measuring Temperature

Hi GZ,

As you mentioned, I need the SDK drivers provided by pico. Now, I have download the SDK. I want to know whether it is enough for me to create a vi document to read the temperature through the PT-104  ?  (I am a total beginner...)

I just took a peek into their LabVIEW-SDK: you may use it to learn the functionality, but I would immediatly start to write my own device driver from their documentation… (The example VI for the PT-104 is a whole mess IMHO.)


Suggestion: As a "total beginner" you really should start with all those "Training resources" offered at the top of the LabVIEW board!

Your device requires to use a 3rd party DLL and you really should learn LabVIEW basics before starting with (kind of advanced) DLL calls…

Hi GerdW,


Many thanks for your helpful answer that is of much significance for me...

I fully agree with you that the example VI for the PT104 is a whole mess...., and I have learned a new English expression "IMHO" from you...I am sure I will use it somewhere in the future...

I will follow your advice to learn from the beginning...

Thank you again for your time and very kind suggestion!!


Best wishes,
