Multipoint networking is now certified for NZ. It has taken. Digi 900MHZ XBEE WIreless DigiMesh or Point to Multipoint networking is now certified for NZ. It has taken two years of extensive work, development and negotiations with the government agency to arrive at this anouncement.

This is a very important technology availability for NZs developent of remote wireless systems, especially for long haul rural or non cellular areas. Pull data out of these difficult areas to link up to Digi Cellular Routers.

Focus >>> ORing

ORing is MasTec's latest company. They approached us recently and said that we needed to include them in our Industrial Comms and Switch group .

We agree. We actually know some of the principal marketers in this company from bygone years, so the linkage is easy.

So do have a look at their INDUSTRIAL GRADE Products.

Two Free LabVIEW Books

"Two Methods to program effectively in LabVIEW"

Book 1 "Hidden Data", that is, cleaning up LV Program's by Removing Constants from Diagrams and putting them in Configuration Files for Loading at runtime.

This method does not use ini files but a far more robust LabVIEW centric method not seen in other literature.

It cleans up Diagrams and also self documents.

Book 2 "Abstraction", that is, removing complexity in the top layer of a LabVIEW diagram by building Abstracted Message Driven LV Components.

This shows how to build Message driven (Test Verbs) Abstracted named (noun) Components that are safe & robust.

It also leads to better cohension of course and no/low coupling.

Both books are expansive, yet simple and this information is not often seen in other LabVIEW information.

Using these methods will simplify design and development plus stabilise your programs and it even make installs easier.

Updating and expanding then follows a standard pattern already in the program design.

These methods delineates Public and Private data clearly.

To get your copy, send this email request to the MasTec LabVIEW Develop Laboratory in Northland NZ.

Our instructor will also cone to your site and do training with your LabVIEW team using these new methods.

Two LabVIEW Books
"Two Methods to program more effectively in LabVIEW"

Book 1 "Hidden Data", that is, cleaning up LV Program's by Removing Constants from Diagrams and putting them in Configuration Files for Loading at runtime.

This method does not use ini files but a far more robust LabVIEW centric method not seen in other literature. It also cleans up Diagrams and Self Documents.

Another Book

Another book is on its way also, more info for the Hidden Data Method plus the development of a built in Cluster Constant Editor in each component for real time editing.

Once you have built a program using this method, if at any point you want to add or delete constants to any of your components cluster constants, maybe just add one more constant or truly expand the calibration to include a whole new sensor set or add more paths etc, just expand the type def for the constant data clusters and make the new entries. These entries can be any data type or grahical data type. Once this new type def cluster is saved, it will automatically appear in the Constant Data Editor TAB Selector . Enter your new data into the new constants and the editor will save this new set of constants for that cluster that has been expanded.

So only one diagram programming step adjusting the Type Def Cluster constant is required for this step. Next time you re/start the program, the expanded cluster with the new data will automatically appear in the section of your program. The wire from the file read and unflatten from string section will now contain the new constants.

You do not have to add or change anything in the diagram to make this happen. The program automatically knows the shape and structure of the new cluster loaded via the cluster local variable that will have expanded to include the new constants and this gives the shape to the file read and unflatten from string module.

MasTec Training
"LabVIEW for Everyone"

MasTec recently under took a 4 day Training course for 15 Academics, (Professors and Grad Students), at one of Oceania's largest universities.

The focus was on getting students to the point where they can undetake projects by the end of the course. A big ask. However, the focus was not on how to use all the bits inside LabVIEW to make software but the development of strategies to allow projects to be undertaken.

The MasTec Instructor has trained all over the globe and has taught over 2000 students.

He will also come to your site and do training with your LabVIEW team, using traditional or these new LabVIEW methods MasTec has developed.

MasTec Projects

MasTec has several large projects on its books, spread out over about 3 years. There are gaps in this schedule.

MasTec is undertaking projects in legacy LV 6.1 systems still running in Windows XP.

Major projects are still undetaken in LabVIEW 7.1 running in Windows 7 32 Bit OS, very successfully. LabVIEW 7.1 is still the best LabVIEW ever released. Fast, efficient and stable. Win 7 32 bit OS will be available for some time. Most large corporations are still running Win 7 due to its excellent history

Other projects are using from LabVIEW 2010 up to the present version of 2015 SP1, which is good, but very processor hungry and slower. We only recommend I7s CPUs with this software with SSDs for the OS and LabVIEW.

Over the last year MasTec has completed 6 major projects in sites through out NZ. Several hundred hours of programming work has been completed, as well as many hundreds of commissioning, site management, and hardware installation.

All these projects involved LabVIEW at the core. However, many of these projects also include PACs, PLCs, Process Controllers, with peripherals like Servos, Actuators, VSDs, Water measurement and control, Hydraulic Control and other real world systems.

Announcement >>> Opportunity

The principal of MasTec has recently decided it is time to realign his life after 50 years of technology, to go horse riding with his wife and dogs Polly, Lilly and newly arrived Freddie.

If you have an interest in owning this important technology company, now is the time to act and start communcation for succession in early 2017.

Racking and Enclosures



The TrippLite Racking and Enclosures (over 100 models)

Enclosures from 2U to 28U heights

With locking doors and side panels, enclosed server rack cabinets are ideal for applications requiring physical equipment security at the rack level (as opposed to the room level). Ventilated doors encourage ample airflow from front to back. Server rack cabinets are popular choices for high-density data centers and server rooms.

Open Frame Racks

Open-frame server racks consist of mounting rails without sides or doors. They’re typically used for applications that don’t require physical security and don’t need added airflow control.

An open-frame rack provides easy access and offers plenty of open space for cable management, making this solution ideal for network wiring closets and distribution frame applications with high-density cabling
Open racks have two or four mounting rails (called posts); 2-post racks generally require less depth but support less weight than 4-post racks

The TrippLite Racking and Enclosures (over 100 models)

Server Racks

wall-mount-network-switch-rack-enclosure

Choose an enclosed server rack for heavier equipment, hotter equipment and applications with higher wattages per rack
Special options include front doors with shatter-resistant clear acrylic windows, seismic ratings for earthquake zones and construction to NEMA IP54 standards for harsh environments


Data center racks organize IT equipment into standard-sized server cabinets for greater efficiency throughout the data center. Rack styles range from open-frame racks consisting of two or four mounting rails (called posts) without sides or doors to lockable enclosure cabinets with rails, front and rear doors and side panels.

The height of a rack cabinet is measured in units designated by the letter U (each rack unit is 1.75 inches/44.45 mm) high; racks are available with capacities ranging from 2U to 58U
Choose floor-standing racks with rolling casters or wall-mount racks for applications where floor space is limited or extra security is important
