Hi I'm using a philtec displacement sensor, and aquiring data with labview. The displacement is captured via a voltage, and then the sensor has a voltage/displacement curve. I'm trying to use the scaling/mapping feature to convert the voltage into a displacement, but it needs to have an lvm file. I have the spreadsheet with just two columns, the first is voltage the second is microns of displacement.
I'm pretty new to labview, and I've tried to hack through the file I/O stuff, but I can't seem to write an lvm file, I'm sure this is easy, can anyone help???
How do I tell the write LVM file VI to read input from a spreadsheet though? Isn't that ususally used during data aquisition to create an LVM file of what you are measuring? I don't really have a signal to input into that VI.
