Distributed Control and Automation Framework


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.
