Introduction

National Instruments' LabView software supports three different interfaces which are compatible with Eigenvector models. Solo_Predictor can be called directly using .NET interfaces. The m-files output by Model_Exporter can be executed natively within LabView, and LabView allows for using PLS_Toolbox by calling directly into Matlab via its ActiveX interface.

Solo_Predictor Interface

LabView supports both socket, and .NET interfaces, any of which can be used to connect to Solo_Predictor directly. For details on these interfaces and the methods, see the EigenvectorTools pages. For assistance with scripting Solo_Predictor, see the Solo_Predictor User Guide.

Model_Exporter Interface

LabView, if installed with the National Instruments "MathScript" add-on, is configured to work with m-file models which are output by Model_Exporter. In these cases, you do not need Matlab to implement an exported model. To learn more about using Model_Exporter with LabView, see the Model_Exporter User Guide.

PLS_Toolbox Interface

To make predictions with an Eigenvector model from within Matlab, LabView can be configured to call into Matlab and execute a specific script. This script can call PLS_Toolbox commands, as long as PLS_Toolbox is installed along with Matlab. See PLS_Toolbox Unattended Configuration for details on configuring PLS_Toolbox for use in unattended situations. For assistance with scripting for these situations, contact our Helpdesk.
