Exp4: Practical LabVIEW programming This will be a fast-paced lab, requiring prolonged concentration. At the end of it, you should have a basic basic working knowledge of LabVIEW, together with some idea of its potential in laboratory applications. There is no report, but fill in the checklist on the back page as you go along, and show us your functioning programs as they roll off the production line. You will have three or four shiny new VIs by end-of-lab. Principles: 1. Reading and displaying lab data. 2. Data conversion and calibrated output. 3. Simple decisions based on data values. 1

Recall (read and inwardly digest) Here is a brief reminder of some basic principles: 1. There are two main windows into the programming environment. The Front Panel , which deals with cosmetics, input of numerical values and logical switches, and display of output values. The Block Diagram , which contains all calculation and instrument interface details. 2. Both Front Panel and Block Diagram have two sets of associated panels, or palettes. Both have a Tools palette. The Front Panel also has a Controls palette, while the Block Diagram has a Functions palette. The Controls palette has all the knobs, bells, whistles and display gizmos. The Functions palette is very large (each item typically has many nested submenus), and contains all the pre-potted functions for actually acquiring data, making calculations, or controlling instruments. 3.
