In this paper, the authors proposed a new practical method was implemented for control and monitoring of purely-mechanical dobby knitting machines. A conventional machine cannot change the fabrication procedure for a pattern change. This machine has a main motor and four servo motors and its process contains three steps: programming, controlling and monitoring. The new customized programming language carried out in LabVIEW; a powerful low-noise microprocessor was used to control the loop and LabVIEW was used for the monitoring process.
