A possible cause is opening a new connection on each library call. That is how I usually look at DLLs. The two indicators in the red rectangle are there to show the current execution state and it is this pair of indicators which do not remain synchronized with the actual program state. Thank you again for taking the time to look at this and explain the reasoning behind the soulution. Message 1 of NO gimmicks, games or email “harvesting”. Looking at the Galil documentation, the “:

I have tried tweaking some of the data types in my manually-configured call-library functions to see if I could find a combination that worked better with the library but had no luck there.

That is how I usually look at DLLs. Message 3 of 5.

Message 7 of 7. When a command is sent, check any error return terminal provided by the sending routine for problems Always read and check the Galil response to the command for a “: Brandon, The input to the command node is a string.

Message 5 of Thank you again for taking the time to look at this and explain the reasoning behind the soulution. Note that the only time the VI display is static enough for me to grab a screen shot like this is during the “Test Timeout” period.

There are more errors that are not defined here but the source text will help determine the error response from Galil. Each call-library function returns the error but falil I32 error number is always zero.

Accepted by topic author GypsyEngineer. Message 2 of 5. For the Galil side of things You don’t need to download your program to Galil every time, connect using Galiltools or GalilSuite and download then use the BP command to burn the program to memory.

This can later be changed to the connection string labvieq the controller I believe that most Galil responses are terminated with a CRLF pair so you would want to configure the serial communications to terminate reads on a LF character.

I know it very well and am generally quite pleased with what I can do with it. This is what I do when communicating with the Galil: Here it reads an initial timeout value, sets a new timeout value, reads it back, tests the timeout by requesting a READ of the controller without having first asked it to say anythingfollowed by restoring the initial timeout and then stopping.

Well if you can guarantee to call any and all DLL functions from within this single non-reentrant Action Engine, then you basically are already protecting the calls to the DLL from reentrant executation. You can double click the Call Library Function node and a dialog box will open. It would seem you are doing incomplete reads. Some other commands have no problem being read.


The people who supplied the library also provided some instructions on how to generate the LabVIEW interface VIs using the import wizard and labvirw those instructions they said to leave it set to the “Run in UI thread” default setting and I did not have the knowledge to question that.

Later versions should be compatible as well. In this example, a stop button is used in a event structure. Right now we are using 3 or 4 programs for testing and demo so it is best to make sure the one we are using is what we need.

Auto-suggest helps you quickly narrow down your labvjew results by suggesting possible matches as you type. The manufacturer says they cannot reproduce the error. I do this by writing a Movement command that responds a 0 or 1 accordingly. Labvies 2 of 2. Ahh Galil motion control. I’ve looked all over the examples and forums and youtube tutorials and I’m just really having a hard time and this particular stage is taking too long. You are reading what you sent out?

It seems like if I am seeting up parameters it doesnt like to be read.
