Read Temperature Data


In this exercise, you will create a program using the Analog Express VI to collect temperature data and display it on a chart and thermometer. After all data have been collected, they are saved to a file using the Write To Measurement File Express VI.


In this exercise, you will

  • Create a LabVIEW VI to collect and display point-by-point temperature data.
  • Incorporate LabVIEW Express File functions.
  • Use a While Loop tunnel configured to auto-index to build an array of all data points.
