019 VISP Extending LabVIEW to the Web with LabSockets


jbergmansI had the pleasure of interviewing John Bergmans from Bergmans Mechatronics. He’s been working with websockets and LabVIEW over the past few years and has evolved his knowledge into a product he calls LabSockets. From his website:

The LabSocket System enables LabVIEW applications to be monitored and controlled remotely using a web browser. The system operates without browser plug-ins, making it suitable for use with a wide range of desktop and mobile browsers. The system is easy to use and requires no knowledge of web programming languages such as HTML or JavaScript.

Listen to the interview to find out more about LabSockets and see if it can help extend your own LabVIEW app, and allow it to be controlled via a web browser interface.

About the author: Michael Aivaliotis has been working in the test and measurement industry since 1993 with LabVIEW 3.0. He started his career as a test engineer and quickly fell in love with the graphical programming paradigm that LabVIEW provided. Since then, he’s worked on or developed an incredible number of complex test systems in electronics, semiconductor, automotive, telecom, biomedical and other industries. He’s an Certified LabVIEW Architect and a Certified LabVIEW Instructor. He also has the distinction of being among a select few LabVIEW Champions. In 2002, he created the LAVA Forums which have now become the largest independent online LabVIEW community. Email Me

    And please, don’t forget to look at a product that can suit your needs much better: WebPager from https://labicom.net/labdeveloper/WebPager/
    It’s better than the discussed here tool in many ways. It doesn’t require opening ports, setting up servers, etc. It produces better UI, certified by National Instruments and cheaper (or even free for educational remote labs). Just have a look:)

    So, THIS IS “WebPager”, NOT “LabSockets”:
