I have been using the Labjack U3 Control Panel to test my automation (controlling PMDC motor using a motor controller) by supplying reference voltage to my controller (0-5v), and it works fine. But now, I am switching it to C Programming using a Embedded C Programmer to completely automate the system. I need a sample C program to generate a reference voltage in the DAC 0 and DAC 1 port using LabJack U3 Device. It will be very helpful if you could send me a sample code from which I can develop the sequence of operation. Your support is greatly appreciated. Thanks and Regards

What operating system will the C program be running on?

Considering this is posted in the Apple/Mac OS X forum, Linux/Mac OS X C examples can be found in the Exodriver source code download:


Using the Feedback low-level function you can set the DACs. The u3Feedback.c demonstrates setting DAC0 among other things and u3EFunctions.c demonstrates setting a DAC using the eDAC helper function (it handles the low-level Feedback function for you). Helper functions are in u3.c/h.
