»View Product Info

By default, LabVIEW executes loops and block diagrams as quickly as possible. However, you might want to control the rate at which a process executes, such as the rate at which data values are plotted to a chart.

You can control timing on loops in one of the following ways:

  • Use a Wait function in the loop to specify the amount of time in milliseconds before the loop re-executes.
  • (Real-Time, Windows) Use a Timed Loop to execute code with time bounds and delays.
