Using LabVIEW and the Vision Development Module, you can connect to a variety of hardware in your machine vision system. This helps you develop all the software for a machine vision system from a single software environment. You can connect with NI data acquisition hardware using the NI-DAQmx driver and industrial hardware using communications protocols like Modbus, EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, and more. You can reliably correlate image analysis with other measurements and I/O in your system or send control signals and commands to additional hardware based on your inspection results.
