Each year at NIWeek, NI releases a variety of new products to help customers tackle the world’s biggest engineering challenges. But what about the exciting products released by our ecosystem of Alliance Partners? Here are four new software add-ons available on the LabVIEW Tools Network that we’d like to share.
The Bergmans Mechatronics LabSocket System enables remote access to LabVIEW applications from desktop or mobile web browsers without the need for browser plugins or a client-side run-time engine. The system works with many common front panel elements, including waveform charts and graphs, XY graphs, multicolumn listboxes, and tabs.
The GTT LTE RBS Toolkit features LabVIEW VIs that you can use as a complete set of measurements to verify performance and test all sizes of radio base stations. It includes soft front panels that make lab measurements quick and easy to execute. High-level APIs help you get custom sequences up and running quickly.
The LocalGrid PQA delivers advanced real-time and historical power analytics to meet your energy management solution needs. Power quality measurements include flicker, energy, power, unbalance, power factor, and THD up to the 40th harmonic. You can configure the LocalGrid PQA to detect the power quality of related events including sags, swells, interruptions, and rapid voltage changes.
XLR8 is a LabVIEW toolkit that you can use to conduct binary reading, editing, formatting, and writing operations on files stored in the Microsoft Excel file format “*.xls.” Its format compatibility can save you hundreds of dollars when generating reports or reading parameter tables since XLR8 does not require an Excel or other spreadsheet software license or other toolkits for generating reports. Also, the distribution of applications built with XLR8 is free.
