UDP or TCP protocol in Labview with Ethernet device

Question

Hi,

Is it possible to communicate with an E-TC module (Ethernet) via Labview UDP or TCP protocol? The problem I am experiencing is that the device becomes unavailable for another user when using Labview with the universal Measurement Computing library (ULx for for NI Labview)

Thanks for your help,

Hello @Pierre-Luc

Unfortunately no, UDP or TCP protocols are not directly supported.  Access to the E-TC to LabVIEW etc. is only via InstaCal/Universal Library on Windows or via uldaq library on Linux. 

"The problem I am experiencing is that the device becomes unavailable for another user when using LabVIEW with the universal Measurement Computing library (ULx for for NI LabVIEW)" -That is by design.  When MCC's Ethernet devices were being developed, it was decided to lock out any other User's attempting to gain access to the device as they could change the configuration, etc. when the initial user had set it up for their needs.  Thinking outside the 'box', you could send the data from the E-TC to a user defined and created database, allowing for other user's to view the data collected by the E-TC.
