Hi. Doing the same sort of thing. If you just want to use LabView
to capture data that you will analyze later you could do a simple
serial receiver put the info into an array and use the dataloging
feature of Labview. The r
eason for doing this is no extra programming
involved and to me it would be the fastest method of storing data.
You can then write another vi to get the data and then do what you
want with it. Again this is just a fast method of getting data from a
After that you can use LabView to write the data out to a
spreadsheet this is quite simple.
You can save your data as a binary vi and us MatLab to read the data
for your analysis. They say this is a faster method of saving data
and again it makes sense because there is no conversion and formatting
I guess I'm not sure if you want to do offline or online processing
and what sort of speeds is your data coming in at?
