Does anyone know a way of streaming realtime data from a labjack DAQ to max msp. I know about ljcontroller :


but it only works on mac osx and I am using a windows pc. Is there is also the possibility of using UDP form labjacks software into max msp for example ?

I have not used MAXMSP, but it will need to access the LabJack DAQ's driver, or use direct TCP/UDP communications that use the low-level functions or Modbus interface/packets. Currently only the LabJack UE9 and T7 support TCP/UDP, and their drivers only support TCP.

For MAXMSP information go to the Cycling '74 website:


Doing a quick forum search on the Cycling '74 site on accessing a dll it looks like one way is through a Max external object.

Max can receive udp or tcp - as long as I can get it out of labjacks software or compatible (labview can send export udp for example) but Id rather use free software if possible

As of this writing, we don't have any software that will let you talk to the U3 using TCP. We do, however, have the UE9 and T7 which can speak TCP directly. You need to be able to open a socket, send some particular bytes and read back the response. The bytes you send and receive are in the Modbus TCP protocol.
