Problem sending signal to electronic board

Solved!
Go to solution

I’m looking for a great way to connect LabView with a Vorne Board. The Vorne Board panels the got two inputs to count parts (Good and Rejects). Does anybody know about a good DAQ module that I can use to receive the Pass/Fail signal from LabView and send the signal to the Vorne Board

Hi Carlos,

 

when you want to send data/signals to some mysterious "Vorne board" you should read the manual of that board to learn about its features!

And it would help to attach that manual here or just provide a link to a datasheet of that "Vorne board"…

Best regards,

Hi Gerd,

 

https://www.vorne.com/xl/xl800-lean-manufacturing-tool.htm

 

XL800-32160T

 

In the install XL manual you can see the inputs currently we got our employees to press a button to create a pass or fail but i will like to automate the process by getting the signal form labview every time a unit pass or fail 

 

thanks

Hi Carlos,

 

that board supports several digital IOs as well as a LAN/Ethernet connection. It even has a serial port…

 

If possible I would prefer to read/write data over that LAN port, using whichever protocol is supported by that board, over connecting it with an additional DAQ device.

For LAN communication you need to read the corresponding manual of your board!

Best regards,
GerdW

Hi Gerd,

 

We're already using the LAN/Ethernet connector to talk and configure the units. that's why im trying to connect to the other inputs like the picture I attached. 

I only need to sent total count (good part) or Reject Count (bad part)

I'm using 4 computers running the same test that's why i will like to connect all of them together to a module get the signal and send to the board

 

at the moment i got my employees to press a button for the input and i a waste of time

So let me get this straight. You are running the same test on four stations and want to combine the pass/fail output of these four stations to one of these displays to display total units tested and total fail?

If this is so then all you need is some cheap digital I/O devices and a good old fashion "Diode OR"

Of course you will have to write the LabVIEW code to toggle the proper DIO bit for each count and reject

Fantastic That's what i need to complete my task. Actually i got 5 computer in the production line 

I need help where i can find the Digitial I/O device and Diode OR which one do you guys recommend to buy 

once i got that i can start on the labview code and share the results with you guys

Well I linked to one of the cheapest USB DIO devices there are.

 

For the "Diode OR" just use diodes, any diode should work but 1N4148 diodes are cheap and easy to get.

 

Thinking about this though it just crossed my mind that that you could conceivably have more than one computer toggling a DIO line at the sametime or overlapping times. Both conditions would result in one or more more counts being dropped.

 

The easy answer never works... 

 

I think you are going to have to put a second ethernet port in the computers and using an Ethernet hub connect them all to the display. Now you will have to figure out how to talk to the display and update its count.

I'm going to buy the Diodes and UBS DIO and start building a demo and also the labview code. and share the picture of the DIO wiring and the labview code with you guys. 

I neeed to make sure I'm connecting the 5 inputs fromt he PC to the DIO

and connect the correct outputs from the DIO to the DIODE OR to the elecotrnic board inputs 

any suggestions on that
