With the NI LabVIEW Control Design Toolkit, you use graphical tools to design and analyze control systems. These control systems can be represented as transfer functions, state-space, or zero-pole-gain models. With built-in tools, you can import plant models from the LabVIEW System Identification Toolkit, construct a feedback control system, and analyze the system. Using tools such as root-locus plots, you can analyze the performance of the controller while modifying parameters. Finally, you can simulate or implement the controller using the LabVIEW Simulation Module.
You can purchase the LabVIEW Control Design Toolkit separately or as part of NI Developer Suite, a modular product offering with which you can select software components based on your application needs. With an NI Developer Suite subscription, you receive a new set of CDs featuring the most recent software version for each product in the suite four times a year as well as direct access to technical support from NI applications engineers via phone and e-mail.
