    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.

    Many examples of our previous work are described on this web site, including previous scientific and utiltity LabVIEW programs, drivers for various instruments available for free download, and several publications and presentations we have written, including two that were selected as finalists in the Research category for the NIWeek paper contest.


What's New from OCC

    May 11, 2016: Several new Drivers have been released for MICAS-X 2.0, including support for Measurement Computing devices (analog input, analog output, digital input, digital output, and temperature), Vaisala HI70 humidity sensor, Watlow EZZone temperature controllers, National Instruments Bridge devices, and Modbus instruments.

    March 16. 2016: Both David and Ted made presentations at the March, 2016 ALARM meeting in Golden, Colorado. These presentations have been uploaded to the ALARM website and to Presentations page of this website.

    January 12, 2016: OCC announces the release of MICAS-X 2.0. This version is based on LabVIEW 2015 and includes numerous new features and fixes. The most significant improvement is in the MICAS Driver model, which now allows for any driver(s) to be disabled and re-enabled, and allows MICAS to start and stop all Drivers. These features can be useful for dealing with missing or troublesome hardware without stopping and restarting MICAS-X. Other improvements in 2.0 are the addition of numerous new commands, improved Sequence functionality, and new Drivers and modules.

Previous announcements from OCC can be found here.

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