The next WA LabVIEW User Group Meeting is on Thursday 17 June and it’s time to kick things up a notch!

You know what that means…..

Road Trip!



We are heading to Murdoch University’s School of Engineering and Energy on the beautiful south side of Perth for an afternoon of LabVIEW adventure!

Courtesy of Associate Professor Graeme Cole and his research group, we will tour the School’s Industrial Computer System Facility and Instrumentation and Control Facility, and Pilot Plant Water Facility.

  • The Industrial Computer System Facility contains a mix of industry standard PLCs and National Instruments’ data acquisition cards, and uses LabVIEW as the basis for teaching industrial data acquisition.
  • The Instrumentation and Control Facility allows students to build real-world control circuits and test different control strategies from within a LabVIEW template application.
  • The Pilot Plant Water Facility is a new large-scale teaching facility fully controlled and instrumented using National Instruments’ CompactRIO hardware and LabVIEW software.

Our guest speaker will be Masters Student Jamie Kurz who will be talking about how he setup and commissioned the CompactRIO system to control the Pilot Plant Water Facility.


You’re Invited

Associate Professor Cole has been an enthusiastic supporter of the LabVIEW environment as a teaching, research, and production tool since his arrival at Murdoch. This is a great opportunity to see how Murdoch University is using LabVIEW to prepare students for today’s instrumentation and control marketplace. And if you haven’t experienced LabVIEW in an industrial setting, here is your chance to see what it can do.

See you on our Road Trip at Murdoch University on Thursday, 17 June.
