Above Threshold Warning of Temperature Data


In the following exercise, you will create a program using the Analog Express VI that records temperature data. The code will allow the user to display the data in Celsius or Fahrenheit units. In addition, a threshold value is compared to the temperature measurement and a message is displayed to alert the user when the temperature is above the threshold.


In this exercise, you will

  • Create a LabVIEW VI to collect temperature data.
  • Become familiar with an Enumerated control.
  • Warn the user when the temperature is above a threshold value.
  • Incorporate code that makes decisions based on user input and numeric comparison.
