National Instruments Motion Assistant Converts to LabVIEW and C Code
Motion Assistant 1.2 now offers advanced features such as smart contouring, which gives machine builders and OEMs the ability to redesign a user-defined trajectory based on their desired move constraints while preserving move geometry. They now can easily implement trapezoidal or S-curve velocity profiles for moves with complex geometry, which helps to minimize jitter on mechanical components and increase machine life. This new capability is ideal for profile-cutting applications where engineers must continuously set up machines to trace different contours.
Engineers can download a new, fully functional evaluation version of NI Motion Assistant 1.2 at www.ni.com/motion to explore the software's latest features. With the new evaluation software, engineers can use code-generation functions to convert their motion control projects to LabVIEW or C code.
