Stepper motor control


I have 

cRIO 9073,

NI 9403,

NI 9215,

stepper motor chopper driver 

and a stepper motor.

I want use develop a control system based on the displacement of the stepper motor. What are relevant training materials I can learn something about it? I am a college student and very new to labview .

Hi Haimi,


Thank you for your post. You seem eager to learn more about LabVIEW and motion control using cRIO, rather than just asking for straight answers... which is very commendable. Please see the following list of links, which I found useful when I started using LabVIEW.


LabVIEW Core 1,n8:28/
Official, instructor-led training. The National Instruments LabVIEW Basics I course introduces you to the LabVIEW environment, its features, dataflow programming, and common LabVIEW architectures in a hands-on format. Learn to develop test and measurement, data acquisition, instrument control, data-logging, and measurement analysis applications.

LabVIEW Core 2,n8:28/
Official, instructor-led training. The National Instruments LabVIEW Basics II course teaches you to design complete, stand-alone applications with LabVIEW. This course, an extension of the LabVIEW Basics I course, introduces you to common design techniques for successfully implementing and distributing LabVIEW applications for research, engineering, and testing environments.


Getting Started with NI LabVIEW Student Training
The online training begins with a video and/or tutorial followed by the corresponding exercises to test your foundational understanding of the topic and help you explore the topic in more detail.


Learn LabVIEW in 3 hours
This step-by-step course provides users new to LabVIEW with an opportunity to learn the basics of using LabVIEW in their engineering applications.


LabVIEW Zone Learning Center
Numerous tutorials and flash videos covering everything from the LabVIEW environment to signal analysis  to  data acquisition.


National Instruments Books and Publications
List if incisive, printed training manuals on a number of LabVIEW related topics


A few more resources, more specific to your application needs


Basic Motor Control


CompactRIO Motor Control Basics Tutorial


Finally, one of the greatest resources you can use when developing LabVIEW applications.... the NI community. Here you will find 1000s of bits of example code and tutorials. It has all been written by fellow LabVIEW developers and National Instruments staff. I would highly recommend booking marking this page, and searching it whenever you are starting a new project.


Best of luck with your project. You have a good attitude to learning, and I am sure you will do well.

Kind regards,
