Design of PC-based System for Monitoring and Control of a Thermal Process using LabVIEW
PC-based using LabVIEW system was developed to monitor and control the temperature of an oven. The RTDPT100 was used as a temperature sensor which offers high accuracy over a wide range from -200 to 850oc. For system switching control the authors used on-off control algorithm. The system provides a digital readout as well as graphical display for showing system temperature and indicators which indicate system status/progress. National instruments' labview8.5 software was used for programming. This system improves accuracy, easy to operate and upgrade.
