  • Simultaneous data collection with LabView


    I am a PhD student looking at knee joint stiffness following total knee
    arthroplasty and am wondering if anyone out there with experience in LabView
    programming can help?

    I trying to simultaneously acquire continuous data from a torque transducer
    and a Biometrics electrogoniometer using LabView Express 7.0. Torque data is
    collected directly through the USB port, the electrogoniometer data is being
    acquired through a Data Translation DAQ module connected to the other USB

    I have written a LabView program which will acquire the data from both
    channels using DT-LV Link VI's for the electrogoniometer data and
    manufacturer supplied VI's for the torque data. I have successfully included
    all these sub-VI's in a single loop and can write the data to a file but
    cannot work out how to get the program to acquire the data absolutely

    I can set the data acquisition rate for the electrogoniometer but the torque
    data VI's are written to sample as quickly as the processing power will
    allow. I need the torque displacement data to be synchronous but this is not
    happening. I am not sure if the problem is just in writing to the file or in
    the actual acquisition. I am wondering if I need to write the data to a
    buffer before writing to file? My programming skills are limited and we have
    no-one in our University who knows how to use LabView.

    Has anyone got any ideas or has similar VI's which they might be prepared to

    Your hopefully,
