Problem sending signal to electronic board

Go to solution

Before you start buying things have you considered the risks of this idea in my last post?


But I guess if you can keep the DIO count pulses as short as possible you can minimize that risk

Thinking about this though it just crossed my mind that that you could conceivably have more than one computer toggling a DIO line at the sametime or overlapping times. Both conditions would result in one or more more counts being dropped

I'm having issues with wiring and the labview code. 

I'm getting confuse in selecting the correct port from the USB-PLUS meaning how to create the labview code that can send the output signal as PASS or FAIL 

And also connecting the wires to the electronic board and the USB-PLUS 


Help please

I just go back from vacation and saw you are still having difficulties.


  1. A quick glance at your breadboard looks like you have all the anodes and cathodes tied together. 
    1. That is not right. Each cathode needs to be connected to a DIO output.
    2. All the anodes are tied together with a pull-up resistor connected to your counter's 12V output and of course a connection to a counter input.
  2. We need to see what code you have so far to give you any meaningful advice on that.

Is my first time working on a project this big with too many inputs can you give me a guidance on how the breadboard should look like and also the connection to the DIO outputs. 

For the labview code I got anything yet i need to start working on that perhaps you got a vi that i can use as an example

Other than the schematic I posted and maybe this, How to Use a Breadboard


I am not sure what else I can give you.
