Vernier sensors can be used as inputs to National Instruments’ NI LabVIEW software. The essential components necessary to use our sensors with LabVIEW are:
1. Vernier interface or adapter, such as:
*SensorDAQ (SDAQ). This Vernier interface was designed specifically with LabVIEW in mind. The SensorDAQ is an interface that works with up to 3 analog sensors and 1 digital sensor. In addition, it has a screw terminal that has an additional 2 analog inputs, 4 digital I/O lines, 1 analog output, and 1 counter.
*LabQuest 2 (LABQ2)
*LabQuest Mini (LQ-MINI)
*LabQuest Stream (LQ-STREAM)
*Vernier myDAQ Adapter (BT-MDAQ). Use this adapter if you are using an NI myDAQ.
*Analog Protoboard Adapter (BTA-ELV). Use this adapter if you are connecting Vernier analog sensors (pH, Temperature, Anemometer, etc..) to a non-Vernier interface.
*Digital Protoboard Adapter (BTD-ELV). Use this adapter if you are connecting Vernier digital sensors (Motion, Photogate, Rotary Motion, etc..) to a non-Vernier interface.
2. LabVIEW software
Vernier does not distribute NI LabVIEW software. Visit NI Academic.
3. Vernier drivers, menu items, and examples for LabVIEW
Find a list of all of our LabVIEW example code at LabVIEW Downloads.
We have two lab books that support the use of our sensors with NI LabVIEW:
*Hands-On Introduction to NI LabVIEW with Vernier. This book is a FREE download and features several projects to help get started with Vernier sensors in LabVIEW.
*Engineering Projects with NI LabVIEW and Vernier (EPV)
