The LabVIEW HMI family of industrial panels provides three different hardware platforms so LabVIEW developers and programmers can deploy operator interfaces alongside a broad range of NI product platforms. The National Instruments FPT-1015 is a 15 in. flat-panel touch screen for all PXI embedded controllers and a flat-panel monitor for the NI Compact Vision System. The NI TPC-2006 is a 5.7 in. Windows CE touch panel computer programmed with LabVIEW PDA to create a remote terminal for headless real-time controllers such as Compact FieldPoint and CompactRIO. The NI PPC-2015 is a Pentium 4 PC that runs Windows XP and works with a wide range of I/O devices from National instruments; it connects via Ethernet to all NI PACs. To create an HMI for a broad range of distributed data the LabVIEW Datalogging and Supervisory Control (DSC) Module provides connectivity to NI hardware and third-party hardware through OPC, Modbus TCP/IP, and gateways for industrial communication protocols.
Application Notes and Example Code for Getting Started
Learn about new features in LabVIEW 8.20 and the LabVIEW Touch Panel Module in this Web Event, “Creating Distributed HMI Systems with LabVIEW Touch Panel Module” Multimeida Web Event.
Download example code and learn how to architect LabVIEW applications that communicate between HMIs and Distributed PACs using the NI touch panel computer, TPC-2006, with the “Creating LabVIEW Applications to Communicate Between PACs and the NI TPC-2006 Industrial Touch Panel Computer” whitepaper.
