Re: Integrated Lab Measuring and Controlling (Labview, Labjack, ...)

John, I thought you were talking about an old USB port driver (from an old Windows) for a newer version of a USB port controller chip (hardware on the mainboard).

Re: Integrated Lab Measuring and Controlling (Labview, Labjack, ...)

USB is a standardized interface. Thus, a generic USB driver can be used for any USB controller (instead of an individual one), right?

Aren't new USB controllers (USB 3.0, 3.1) downward compatible to USB 2.0, so that also USB 2.0 drivers might be used on them?

Re: Integrated Lab Measuring and Controlling (Labview, Labjack, ...)

Update. Currently these points are still open: High frequency (> 3 MHZ) sensing with Atmel controller chip (Arduino) Time synchronisation of different (high frequency) meters Running (old) USB-drivers on (old) Windows in a virtual machine to reenable old measuring equipment (typically the Windows dr...

Re: Integrated Lab Measuring and Controlling (Labview, Labjack, ...)

Ok, I got you. Once I want a summarizing synopsis, I have to do it. But these points are stil open (to do this): High frequency sensing with Atmel controller chip (Arduino) Time synchronisation of different (high frequency) meters Maybe a trigger signal e.g. from a pulse generator can be used for ti...

Re: Integrated Lab Measuring and Controlling (Labview, Labjack, ...)

Thank you all for those good contributions to the topic.

Maybe some overviewing this field could do a short summarizing synopsis with the strengths and weaknesses of each measuring approach to provide guidance for the others?

Re: How to figure out the specs of old Rigaku scintillation tube probe?

Unfortunately - as I told before - I've already purchased the x-ray scintillitor tube. Mainly because of two reasons: I have got a small budget, thus I am dependent on maximum-universal measuring insruments. All those 50kV warning postings jared on my nerves. By the way, where have all those 50kV wa...

Re: Integrated Lab Measuring and Controlling (Labview, Labjack, ...)

Yes, but you won't be able to assemble the (high-frequency) data from different instruments correctly by time, then (even if they would allow a data export on USB stick or SD card).

Re: Integrated Lab Measuring and Controlling (Labview, Labjack, ...)

The MegunoLink seems to be a nice insider tip. However I doubt, ATMega Controller can do high frequency sensing like a PC oscilloscope. Last week at cleaning up my old lab stuff I have refound my old USB-PC-oscilloscope. 70MHZ and with Labview driver. Really no bad equipment. However, as it is alrea...

Re: Integrated Lab Measuring and Controlling (Labview, Labjack, ...)

You are right Richard. On the other hand, however, integrated lab measuring on a computer also offers some advantages: Exact time synchronization of different measurements. Producing an integrated data set with all measured variables, that can be analyzed by a statistics software, that allows very s...
