Even More Life Changing Mouse Buttons

I recently wrote a post on how to change your life by changing a mouse button . My life has been vastly improved since I added a delete button to my mouse. My hair is growing thicker and fuller, my eyesight has improved, my lawn is greener, and I can delete things so much faster than before. My life has been great, but I still felt like something was missing. Easy access Delete As a...

LabVIEW Queue for Loop Control; Elegant Hack or Abuse of the System?

After 10 years of LabVIEW development, I like to think of myself as fairly experienced. I’ve acquainted myself with a number of design patterns. When I encountered this, I assumed I was dealing with an event-based producer-consumer pattern. Do you spot what’s wrong with this picture? Technically nothing, but it took me a minute to figure out what was really going on with that queue. That’s right, it’s not really a queue. It’s an elegant...

The Secret Combination to Unlocking AutomationDirect Stepper Motors in LabVIEW

I was working on a radiation leakage test system trying to control a STP-DRV-4850 motor designed to spin an array of D-tect sensors around a unit under test. I was able to spin the motor using AutomationDirect's utility program, SureStep Pro and everything was looking good, until I tried to send the motor controller serial commands from LabVIEW. After beating my head against the wall for the greater part of an hour, I finally turned...

Fisnar Glue Application Robot

We recently had a customer come to us with a request to program a Fisnar I&J7100 robot. We did not have any experience with this robot, but told them that if they couldn't find someone to help then we could learn it. Endigit's best feature is our ability to learn and solve new challenges. Bryan had experience with programming and running CNC machines so he volunteered to take this on. Here is the resulting robot...

Change a Mouse Button, Change Your Life

I like being efficient. I don't like doing unnecessary things. I figure out the fastest route to drive everywhere I go. I even tie my shoes differently to save myself two seconds. If you have talked to me in person then it is very likely you have heard me go on about minimizing my wallet. I don't like wasting time or energy. At Endigit, we are proud of our efficiency and ability to complete things...
