    Hi,

    I am working on a project which involves LVDT and Labview. I have no prior knowledge of labview. What i need to do is to convert the signals(DC) from the LVDT into simple representation of displacement using the Labview software.

    I am using the LVDT to measure the position of piston in a tank.

    Can anyone please guide me into how to accomplish this task by:
    1)which chapter(s) in any Labview guide manual I should read?
    2)if possible, tell me step by step how to go about this?

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR ANYONE WHO CAN HELP ME!
    I will appreciate any useful input.

    You will need to first digitize your sensors output, then make that data available to Labview via some port on your PC.

    In Labview, you would initialize the port if required, then, if I understand what you need, you would simply loop read the port and send the data to an indicator or chart, with some scaling inbetween.
