Pluggin' into Switch Executive

Solved!
Go to solution

Does anybody have some hints on how to plug in to SwitchExecutive to integrate an own (non-NI based) switching device? In my  case, I am thinking about integrating a pneumatic switching matrix with 72 valves...

If it is possble at all....

 

Cheers

Oli

I never tried that but I've read that with IVI Switch driver you should be able to accomplish this (or at least that what I understand). So, you need custom IVI Switch Driver.

Adding to Michal's links, I have managed to use it with pickering devices. You need to make it IVI compaitble.

@Michal

@Sree

 

thanks for the information, it'a a good starting point! The only thing, which bothers me a bit is that I was not yet able to find a .net template for a IVI switch driver. CVI is not part of our regular toolchain, so I am a bit reluctant.

I shall keep on searching. As of now, we're evaluating the feasibilty of this concept in general.

I'm not the expert but look for ".NET IviSwtch"

https://www.ivifoundation.org/downloads/Class%20Specifications/IVI-4.6_Swtch_2011-08-25.pdf

There is .NET IVI as well.
