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 or LabQuest interface. Data analysis can then be performed on the logged data. In addition, this example provides feedback that the interface and sensor are properly connected.

Most of the examples in this book and on the Vernier web site are very simple. They are kept simple so that they are easier to understand. This VI is different; it is a fairly advanced example that displays some of the power of LabVIEW. It is designed as a program that can be used in the classroom for data logging and analysis.


In this exercise, you will

  1. Open and run an example VI.
  2. Take measurements.
  3. Receive feedback on your hardware connection.
