Linx LabView Custom Command - Read sensor value


Hello, guys! 

I have 2 weeks left of my bachelor thesis, and i really need help on this one..

I have build a IR-sensor to measure the RPM of a DC-motor, using Arduino mega2560 and Arduino IDE it works really well. But i need to use Labview to control a system, and need the feedback from my sensors, for this i will have to use a custom command. Attached is a code i found online to read the RPM from the sensor, and it works well with the arduino IDE.

I need to write the code for the custom command, but having 0 experience with coding and arduino im really stuck.. 

Is anyone willing to help a desperate student?

Hey Sodcom,

In general, we try to avoid doing too much to help students with school assignments. That doesn't mean that I can't answer questions, it just means I can't write any code for you. Below I have attached links that should help you out. feel free to ask if you have any specific questions about those links or you run into a problem that you need help as much as possible. 


That's the link to LINX, it's a LabVIEW add-on that will help you interface with your Arduino mega2560. Unfortunately, LINX only works with LabVIEW 2014. You can download a 45-day evaluation version of 2014 here.


That is a walkthrough showing you how to use LINX to add a custom command 


This link is a blog post called "How to use LINX Custom Commands"
