Using labview to measure Beer fermentation

Using labview to measure Beer fermentation

Using labview to measure Beer fermentation

Hello I have Labview 7.1 and am totaly new to it.

I would like to take a switched event, record the times it switches (event timer) have it record the data in 24hr blocks and then maybe do some math with the results.

If anyone can lead me in this it would be great.

Im measuring how many times my airlock burps on my beer fermenter. Knowing the volume of the airlock and some other numbers Id like to figure activity per 24hrs and CO2 volume.

What is your interface device? (data logger, daq card )

RE: Using labview to measure Beer fermentation

Sorry, Its going to be a NI DAQ Isa card digital I/O or serial if possible

The main part of the code will be a loop.
Probably a while loop. Maybe output to a chart.
I usually start by using the random number generator
as an input for testing the program.

Some of the cards have counter inputs
that will count the transitions for you.
I'm looking at the usb-6008 low cost usb data acq.
for my next progect.

Check some of the sample vi's they are easy to modify.

A helpful site http://www.iit.edu/~labview/Dummies.html

National Instruments has alot of online tutorials too.

If someone would like to make this program for me I would pay you for your time. Please let me know...
