Driver Links LabView/Servos

Sept. 9, 2007
A new driver for National Instruments’ LabView graphical programming environment allows creation of motion profiles in LabView running on a standard PC with Windows XP for simple point-to-point moves in test and measurement, lab automation and other applications.
Andrew Urda, director of marketing at the vendor, explains that this driver couples the power of LabView via a PCI communication card running Mechatrolink, a digital servo network, to the vendor’s family of AC servo drives and motors. This will allow LabView users to have full use of a range of servo products from 10W to 75kW.Yaskawa Electric America Inc.
