Firstly, sorry if a similar question has been asked/answered before. I have done some searching and can't find anything that seems to match what I am trying to achieve. Perhaps I'm not using the right words.
I am trying to control humidity in a chamber. I have a sub vi that takes in input from a humidity sensor and outputs humidity readings and also the time required for a humidifier to run.
Where I am having difficulty is that I wish for the data from the first loop to be continously updating to see current humidity levels, but also to periodically every 5mins (currently 2000ms for debugging) run a separate loop that will run the humidifier for a required time.
Please what would be the proper Labview way of achieving this goal?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Sounds like a Queued Message Handler is what you need. It is similar to a Producer/Consumer in that you send commands to the second loop via a queue.
The structure for QMH just knocked the wind out of me, it looks so complicated. This may take a while.
Thanks for the reply crossrulz, description of it sounds like exactly what i'm after.
