“Happy Easter” release of daq.io: Better LabVIEW Cloud Monitoring.

New LabVIEW plugin, new functionality, updated website.

Hello daq.io users,
spring has finally arrived, at least here in Seattle. So has our latest, shiny release of daq.io: V1.2 now includes the ability to store and retrieve waveform data. Monitor your measurement systems and upload high resolution sensor data waveforms when required. Get started with the best LabVIEW Cloud Monitoring solution.

A fresh new look on daq.io:

We have also streamlined our web interface and simplified the user experience: Switching between the Live Dashboards, the Data Viewer and the Event Viewer to analyze your devices is now easier than ever before. Check out the new interface now.

News on the LabVIEW plugin and examples: 

You now have the ability to store and retrieve any signal that has been sampled at high frequencies using the waveform data type. Time series data acquisition is very useful for monitoring purposes with its refresh rates of up to 1 Hz. While this is great to view the status of devices’ health, waveforms can show in-depth analysis of any measurement channel. This can help when drilling down to the root cause of a failed system*.

Reading Back Data
Furthermore, we are shipping a new example that allows you to read back and process your daq.io data in LabVIEW. Download any time series data in various resolutions. Here,

  • the Monthly rollups provide one averaged value per hour,
  • the Daily rollups provide one averaged value per minute,
  • the Hourly rollups contain all raw monitoring data with 1 second resolution.

Reading back Waveforms

Getting started using waveforms and the new examples:

  • After installing the package, open the LabVIEW example finder (Help->Find Examples), search for “daq.io”

Generate a Waveform:

  • Open the “daq.io Machine example.vi”, run it and click “Create Waveform”. The code will generate and upload a 1000-sample waveform of a square wave on channel “Speed (RPM)”. Change the code to generate other waveforms

Reading back data: 

  • Open and run the “daq.io Get Time Series Example.vi”
  • Select the device you would like to get data for
  • Pick a channel, a time resolution and start and end dates. Then click “Download Data” to view it in the graph.
  • If a waveform packet is available, it will show up in the list below the graph, filtered by channel and selected date. Double-click it to view it in a graph.

If you encounter issues or have questions on how to use the current LabVIEW package, do not hesitate to contact us here or use our support forum at https://decibel.ni.com/content/groups/daqio-support-forum. There you will always find the latest package to download and useful up-to-date information.


*) Currently waveforms will not be displayed in the Web UI. This will be coming soon.
