Labview Interface with DG-II Series Driver

Postby krishnakumar.vengadasamy » Tue Jul 21, 2015 4:32 am

We are planning to procure the following actuator DG200R-ARAC-3 along with LSD-C Driver (DG-II Series). We have few queries regarding the same..

a) We dont want to use MEX software whereas we are planning to create an application using Labview. We have gone through few posts where some drivers from oriental motors have been interfaced with Labview and ASCII commands are sent. What are the ASCII commands to control the actuator for DG-II Series?

b) If ASCII commands arent available what is the way to find out the different ASCII commands for different inputs...

Actuator information :- ... 6|3001325x

Drive Information:- ... vers/lsd-c

If more info is required, please let me know....

Cheers, Have a nice day!!!!!!

Your product model, DG200R-ARAC-3, does not offer any network communication capabilities. It'll require pulse/direction or CW/CCW pulse signals from an external pulse controller. A slightly different model, DG200R-ARACD-3, would be able to communicate via RS-485 hardware and Modbus RTU industrial fieldbus network protocol. For this to work, you would need a ASCII to Modbus RTU library. I'm not sure if it exists from National Instruments but they do offer a LabView to Modbus RTU library. For your existing product to interpret ASCII, it'll require a controller such as our SCX11 standalone pulse controller which accepts RS232 serial connection. You would be commanding the SCX11 via ASCII, and the SCX11 would send pulse/direction signals to the DG200R-ARAC-3 driver. You would have to convert all of our program commands shown in our manual (all that you use) to ASCII first.

[ SCX11 ] ... lers/scx11

Please let us know if this will work for you.
