    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

    August 1, 2015:  Original Code is pleased to announce that Ted Anderson has joined our team as a Systems Integration Engineer.  Ted brings decades of valuable experience to OCC, both as a LabVIEW programmer as well as in numerous other engineering endeavors.  Ted will be bolstering OCC's established presence for LabVIEW development in commercial and research environments, and also brings extensive familiarity with computation fluid dynamics, hydrology, GPS & GIS, data presentation, and statistical analysis of sparse data sets.

    June 12, 2015:  Version 1.5.1 of MICAS-X has been released.  This version brings almost all MICAS-X Drivers in line with the new standard, including timing information, optional time channel, and OSDS recording when applicable.  Version 1.5.1 of the Web Power Switch 7 Driver is also available, which adds optional read-back of the current outlet states and the ability to use the WPS7 as a watchdog, shutting down power to a device if the computer or software hangs.

Previous announcements from OCC can be found here.

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