The NI LabVIEW ELVIS RIO Control Toolkit provides you with tools for creating and deploying applications on the NI ELVIS RIO Control Module (CM). The ELVIS RIO Control Toolkit contains the following components:
NI ELVIS RIO CM VIs—The NI ELVIS RIO CM VIs provide functionality that you use to interface with the NI ELVIS RIO CM I/O channels and onboard devices.
NI ELVIS RIO Control Module USB Monitor—This USB monitor shows basic information about the NI ELVIS RIO CM that you connect to your computer and provides options for you to work with the NI ELVIS RIO CM. This USB monitor appears when you use a USB cable to connect the NI ELVIS RIO CM to your computer.
Getting Started with NI ELVIS RIO Control Module—This wizard helps you set up a new NI ELVIS RIO CM and test the onboard devices. To launch this wizard, launch LabVIEW, click the Set Up and Explore link, and select Launch the Getting Started Wizard. You can also access this wizard through the NI ELVIS RIO Control Module USB Monitor.
NI ELVIS RIO Control Module I/O Monitor—This utility helps you test and monitor data from different I/O channels on the NI ELVIS RIO CM without programming. To launch this utility, launch LabVIEW, click the Set Up and Explore link, and select Launch the I/O Monitor. You can also access this dialog box through the NI ELVIS RIO Control Module USB Monitor.
Templates and sample projects—Templates demonstrate useful design patterns and serve as starting points for your applications. Sample projects demonstrate working applications based on the templates. You can customize the templates and sample projects according to the needs of your application. Select File»Create Project to display the Create Project dialog box, which lists templates and sample projects.
Examples—Example VIs demonstrate common applications that you can create by using the ELVIS RIO Control Toolkit. You can modify an example VI to fit an application, or you can copy and paste from one or more example VIs into a VI that you create. You can access these VIs by selecting Help»Find Examples and then selecting Toolkits and Modules»NI ELVIS RIO Control Module in the NI Example Finder.
Visit the NI ELVIS RIO Control Module Community to find sensor drivers and example code, which requires third-party sensors and actuators. You can also share code and collaborate with other NI ELVIS RIO CM users on the NI ELVIS RIO Control Module Community.
