The Distributed Control and Automation Framework helps you create LabVIEW applications for embedded control systems.
The Distributed Control and Automation Framework (DCAF) is software for the development of LabVIEW-based solutions in industrial and embedded environments, such as machine control, process automation, and distributed control. DCAF is built around a core data engine that automates data handling between sensors, actuators, network protocols, and data processing modules. Each of these modules is developed as a plug-in component of the data engine, and the framework provides a range of prebuilt modules including Modbus, UDP, Scan Engine, TDMS, PID, Alarming, Scaling, and CVT. Developers can create custom plug-ins for the framework in LabVIEW or use templates to develop core logic in other programming languages and add new and application-specific capabilities.
