Labview stepper motor control
Control stepper motor arduino+labview+easydriver
Hello there. I’d like to use a LabVIEW software to power two stepper motors. LinEngineering provided the stepper motors, and Peter Norberg Consulting provided the stepper motor driver. The stepper motors will be used to drive two linear actuators with a pitot tube fixed on them, allowing me to take various air velocity measurements at various points. I haven’t written code in LabVIEW in a long time, and I was hoping someone could assist me in getting started. I don’t think about the motors’ speed or anything; all I need is a software that can control these stepper motors. Thank you.
Please read through this thread. It is not recommended to control a stepper motor with the counters of an E- or M-Series board, as this method lacks features that are usually needed for motion control applications (e. g. accelerate and decelerate moves to avoid step loss, reliable limit switch and following error tracking,…) Best wishes, Klier, Jochen National Instruments is a company based in the United States

I was planning on writing a Python script to manage the Tic serial commands’ output (integer or equivalent bit-string), and then using LabVIEW to translate/transmit the Tic commands to a TTL communication signal on a digital output pin on the DAQ.
Since we do not use LabVIEW, we are unable to assist you with your project. If you’re having trouble, use an oscilloscope to look at the signals that your LabVIEW code produces. If you have an Arduino board, you could run one of the serial examples from the Tic Stepper Motor Controller library for Arduino and compare the signals to your LabView code.

The TIMS-0201TM single axis stepper motor controllers from Jova Solutions are low-cost “plug and play” solutions for small to midsize stepping motors. PCI plug-in cards and expensive installations are no longer needed thanks to the USB interface, which is now standard on all PCs and laptops. The TIMS-0201 module can be easily attached, removed, and transferred thanks to the USB 1.1/2.0 full speed interface, which removes the need for a lengthy installation or a device reboot.
The TIMS-0201 stepper motor controller includes general-purpose I/O pins with software-configurable features, such as digital input, digital output, counter/timer input, PWM output, and analog input. Home, reverse or forward limit switch inputs, and quadrature encoder inputs can all be programmed on the GPIO pins.
For a number of standard motion control functions, a driver DLL with a fully documented API is provided. For easy integration into LabVIEW programs, a full LabVIEW driver library is also included.
The on-board programmable controller of the TIMS-0201’s stepper motor controller supplies phase output signals to the driver circuits. Internal counts or optional encoder inputs are used to track motor position in a 32-bit position register. The commands in the TIMS 0201 library provide versatility and programming ease.

Good day, everybody! I hope you’re all doing well and having a good time. Today, I’ll show you how to create a simple Virtual Instrument (VI) in LabVIEW for controlling stepper motor direction. I worked on Stepper Motor Direction Control with Arduino in my previous tutorial, in which I managed Stepper Motor Direction Control with Arduino, and I’m going to use the same setup this time, except this time I’m going to do the Stepper Motor Direction Control in LabVIEW. You can also take a look at Matlab-based Stepper Motor Direction Control. In this tutorial, I’ll focus on a LabVIEW software for controlling the direction of a stepper motor. Before diving into the specifics of this tutorial, you can review my previous ones since I’ll be using the same hardware setup and Arduino source code. In LabVIEW, I’ll create a simple GUI (Graphical User Interface) for controlling stepper motor direction. On the Interface, there will be three separate buttons for clockwise, counterclockwise, and stopping the stepper motor, respectively. Controlling the direction of a stepper motor in LabVIEW
