Starting with NI LabVIEW 2014, the remote development and deployment functionality of the LabVIEW Touch Panel Module is included in the LabVIEW development systems. As part of this transition, the LabVIEW 2014 development systems support only NI TPC-22xx touch panel computers running Windows Embedded Standard 7 (WES7). This OS provides increased reliability, fault tolerance, and customization features not available in other Windows OSs.
With the LabVIEW Touch Panel Module, you can quickly create and deploy human machine interface (HMI) applications to communicate with NI embedded real-time platforms such as Compact FieldPoint, CompactRIO, and Compact Vision System. These HMIs display data from and control autonomous, distributed real-time systems. The LabVIEW Touch Panel Module includes tools for user interface development as well as functions for communication, data analysis, and data storage.
The module is optimized for development and deployment to NI HMI hardware. Each NI touch panel computer includes one LabVIEW Touch Panel Module deployment license; there is no additional deployment cost for large industrial systems.
