Marine Data Concentrator
Objective: To accommodate new part types and add printing and
other capabilities to a marine data concentrator module software
used to measure all important signals on various boats and control all
gauges on the instrument cluster.
Challenge: The software can program, calibrate, and test any one
of a number of different types of data concentrators. The customer was
not close to Focus Software's Ann Arbor location, yet the software changes
were made and installed without anyone from our office ever visiting the
actual installation site.
Solution: It's a strong testament to the ease of integration and
installation of the LabVIEW graphical programming language that this remote
installation was possible. We wrote the software at our Ann Arbor office,
then zipped and e-mailed it to the installation site, where it was unzipped
into the appropriate directory.
