The NI LabVIEW DSC Module extends graphical programming benefits to the development of Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) or high-channel-count data-logging applications. Use the tools to communicate to conventional programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and programmable automation controllers (PACs), log data to databases, manage alarms and events, and create human machine interfaces (HMIs).
The LabVIEW DSC Module is shipped with support for commonly used industrial protocols including OLE for process control (OPC), which gives an application the ability to communicate with virtually all PLCs and PACs. With this flexibility, you can easily integrate LabVIEW into existing SCADA/HMI systems.
With the LabVIEW DSC Module, you can easily log data to the built-in networked historical database or log to your existing enterprise relational database. Without additional programming, you can use these same configuration-based tools to set up the logging of alarm and notification data.
Developing control applications requires expertise in several areas, including process logic, control system design, and user interface design. The LabVIEW DSC Module provides an alternative to the conventional development environment with a single development environment for logic and HMI development.
