What is Instrument Control

Instrument control is a PC-based approach that combines programmable software and hardware connectivity for automating measurement acquisition from third-party instrumentation. An instrument control system consists of instrumentation, connectivity hardware, and a computer with programmable software. Compared to traditional measurement systems, the combination of NI LabVIEW software, instrument drivers, and connectivity hardware is the most productive, flexible approach to automating third-party instrumentation.
