DriveTest provides code for National Instruments LabVIEW for use of SE3 devices. This code comes as LabVIEW VIs in a Packed Library.
Internally, the VIs are based on the SE3 .net DLL. The deployment system must be able to execute Microsoft .net assemblies. Also, a license is required to use the LabVIEW driver.
This driver is meant to leverage streaming of force measurements with DriveTest SE3 devices in customer LabVIEW applications. Streaming is available at several data rates.
The driver is not capable of permanently changing the configuration of SE3 devices. For this purpose use the program DriveTest PinchPilot. SE3 LabVIEW Driver assumes that the SE3 device is correctly configured.
The following applies to version 1.0 only
The driver requires a license to be used. This is enforced by an entitlement management system, which has to be installed on the target system. Plase download and run the following installer in order to use SE3 LabVIEW Driver. After installation, activation is required, as described in the DriveTest Licensing Manual.
The driver follows an approach similar to other drivers:
DriveTest SE3 force meter devices use a USB-to-Serial conversion chip from FTDI. The driver for this chip is included in Windows (7 and later). In Windows, the force meter appears as a serial COM Port.
When streaming measurement data from the force meter device at high sample rates (>250 samples per second), USB settings for the force meter COM port have to be tweaked.
