    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

    January 20, 2017: OCC has just released a preliminary version of ICM (Instrument Communication Module) as an open source project. ICM is a replacement for OSDS (the OCC Streaming Data System), and allows easy integration of a wide variety of instruments into any LabVIEW program. The primary purpose of ICM is to allow a configuration-based interface to reading and writing data from instruments, allowing the end user of the program to add instruments, channels, and scalings with no programming needed. ICM is written in LabVIEW 2015, and is available on the ALARM GitHub repository. Contact OCC or another ALARM GitHub member to request membership in this project.

    October 6, 2017: The Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences at CU just released a short video about the atmospheric chambers that I have been working on there for the last few years.

OCC's MICAS-X software runs both chambers simultaneously, but asynchronously, allowing two different experiments to be run at once.

    August 31, 2017: The most recent version of MICAS-X, 2.2.0, now includes an extended PID Driver with gain scheduling and auto-tuning as well as new commands that allow individual files to be turned on and off and for the file writing rate to be changed programmatically.

Previous announcements from OCC can be found here.

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