    Original Code Consulting provides LabVIEW programming from instrument drivers to complete applications.  We have over three decades of combined LabVIEW experience in laboratory data acquisition, experiment control, and data analysis and review tools, and over 18 years as a LabVIEW consultant and National Instruments Alliance Member in Colorado.  Our previous projects have included serial, DAQ, and custom interfaces to mass spectrometers, test and measurement equipment, high speed digitizers, analytical chemistry instruments, and laser and optical systems.  Although many of our consulting projects have been in the R&D world (academic, government, and industrial), we also have extensive experience in commercial and industrial applications such as process monitoring and production test.  Besides working with NI hardware, I have written drivers and programs for instruments and plug-in boards from numerous other manufacturers.  In addition to working with clients throughout Colorado, we have helped customers achieve success throughout the United States, Europe, Asia, and Latin America.

   We provide cost-effective programming solutions designed with long-term maintainability in mind.  Our emphasis is on well-documented, quality code with a highly-functional, easy-to-understand user interface.  End-user support is available to ensure successful implementation and full compliance with the customerís specifications.  A discounted rate is available for educational and government institutions.  Besides extensive experience with LabVIEW itself, we are proficient in using LabVIEW RT (Real Time), and LabVIEW FPGA, and NI's Vision hardware and software, as well as a variety of other programming languages and software tools.

What's New from OCC

    November 25, 2016: With the release of MICAS-X 2.1.3, OCC has created the limited (Ltd) license for MICAS-X. MICAS-X Ltd allows MICAS-X to be sold for simpler projects, where the full price of the standard MICAS-X license may not be competitive with a custom-written LabVIEW program. MICAS-X Ltd is restricted to the specific modules it is licensed for, but allows smaller data logger systems to take advantage of the robust code base and broad existing functionality of MICAS-X.

    October 21, 2016:  Original Code Consulting is pleased to announce that David Thomson has just qualified as a National Instruments Certified LabVIEW Embedded Systems Developer (CLED), demonstrating proficiency in the use of NI's hardware and software for embedded systems.

    October 5, 2016: OCC has posted example code for using the MLSD command with NI's FTP functions. This command is needed when interacting with some FTP servers, since some servers will not return a directory listing with the LIST command that NI's functions use if the directory name has spaces in it.

    September 6, 2016: MICAS-X 2.1.0 has been released, with new fixes and features, including support for cRIO and other NI Real-Time platforms. MICAS-X-RT can deploy data acquisition, logging, and complex control logic directly to embedded RT systems via the standard MICAS-X configuration interface, with no additional programming needed for many applications. Full integration of MICAS-X-RT with MICAS-X on Windows provides an instant highly-functional user interface. As always, custom code can easily be integrated to capture the complete project specifications. For more information, see the MICAS-X web page.

    OCC has recently made available a list of recommendations for configuring a data acquisition computer.
