A material refining company needed a program to monitor the weight of the material being processed from their equipment. The company needed the software to communicate with their existing equipment, and save the data in excel for analysis.
We developed a LabVIEW program that communicated with an existing Mettler Toledo scale via RS-485. The software graphed mass flow of the material in real time. The software also contained a graph that calculated a moving average of the mass flow of the material. We saved the collected data in an excel file for later analysis.
This program allowed the operators to view the data from the process in real time. Using this data they could optimize the processing of the material. The saved data was used for advanced process analysis and quality control.
