Newton API for LabVIEW is a library of LabVIEW Virtual Instruments (VI) allowing control and monitoring of Newton controller from custom applications build in LabVIEW graphical programming environment.
Newton API for LabVIEW is intended for Newton Fatigue controllers, and includes the following VIs:
- Open Connection
- Close Connection
- Get Profile Parameters
- Set Profile Parameters
- Get System Status
- Safety Control
- Start Movement
- Stop Movement
- Set Safety Limits
The library is provided as VIPM (VI Package Manager) package, which can be installed on any computer with LabVIEW environment available. The API supports LabVIEW versions 2018 and higher.
Newton LabVIEW API operates in conjunction with Newton software, i.e. Newton software is used to deploy the firmware on the controller, configure machine, create tests, run test, perform offline analysis and generate reports, while VIs included into the API library allow to connect to the machine while it is running and configure safety features, set profile parameters, start/stop movement, jog, monitor status, etc.
For proper operation of the API Newton Controller and Newton software application are required. For more information about Newton Controller and software please check the product brochure https://www.testresources.net/media/pdf/newton-introductory-brochure.pdf
The Newton API for LabVIEW Basic Option Toolkit Supports Newton Software/Firmware version 7.5.1.
- Updated to support Newton 7.5.1 version
