Recommended for grades 9–14.
In this exercise, you will open and run an advanced LabVIEW example VI that performs data logging with a Vernier Stainless Steel Temperature Probe connected to the SensorDAQ. Data analysis can then be performed on the logged data. In addition, this example provides feedback that the SensorDAQ and sensor are properly connected. Unlike most of the Vernier SensorDAQ examples, this VI is not an example of simple programming. It is an advanced example that displays some of the power of LabVIEW. This example is designed as a program that can be used in the classroom for data logging and analysis. It is not meant to be used for learning how to program the SensorDAQ using LabVIEW.
In this exercise, you will
- Open and run an example VI.
- Take measurements.
- Receive feedback on your hardware connection.
Sensors and Equipment
This activity requires each of the following Vernier sensors and equipment (unless otherwise noted):
You will also need a SensorDAQ interface and LabVIEW software for data acquisition.
