speed sensor (newbe)

Hi,
I am looking for a tutorial on how to take speed sensor info. into
labview. I am alos looking for info on how to control a motor. Does
anyone out there know of such a tutorial.

Thanks,
Bernard

Bernard,

A little more detail is required on your speed sensors to know exactly what types of signals are being read. In addition National Instruments has great products for doing motion control but again defining your application would be helpful here also.

Two suggestions:

1. Contact your local Field Sales Engineer and find out how we can help you.

2. Look on NI Developer zone @ zone.ni.com. Here you can search on keywords and perhaps find applications note to give you more insight into what you want to do.

We are reading in a pulse signal from an Omega speed sensor. We would
like to measure the time betwe
en pulses. My company just got the
hardware (DAQ6035E) and software (labview 6.1) and has decided not to
pay for any application support or training.

Thanks,
Bernard

Hi Bernard,
just connect your sensor to a digital input (if the electrical signal fit) of your DAQ hardware in read the
no. of pulses by a fixed timebase (v = s / t). Do some averaging on your computed speed if you need a more
smooth display. Thats it.
Where is your problem?
