I'm very new to LabView and I need a little bit of help to get started.
I'm hoping to build a simple roll bender and I'm looking to see if
LabView would be a good option for controlling the system.
To start off with i want to see if labview 5 can control this system:
My PC interface will be: NI USB-6009 14-Bit, 48 kS/s Multifunction Data
Acquisition for USB
I hope to set up a test rig where I have an LVDT as my input and 2
LED's as my outputs (the led's will indicate FWD/REV... in the future
this output will control an actuator... e.g. motor forward & Reverse).
I want to have a set point where the actuator will move to. In the
future I hope to have the actuator bending a sheet of metal, the LVDT
will input the the sheets position and the actuator will bend to this
How can I so this in lab view especially using a Transfer Function?
In the long Run I'm hoping to find the relationship between the moment
and the curvature so I can control the shape of the metal work piece as
it moves through the bender.
If you would like further info e.g. diagrams etc please email me.
