Direct Interface Communication in Simulink
The Instrument Control Toolbox™ provides blocks for communicating with instruments and using the serial, TCP/IP, and UDP interfaces in Simulink. The blocks in the Instrument Control Toolbox Block Library and examples showing how to use them are listed below.
|Query Instrument||Query or read instrument data|
|To Instrument||Send simulation data to instrument|
|Serial Configuration||Configure parameters for serial port|
|Serial Receive||Receive binary data over serial port|
|Serial Send||Send binary data over serial port|
|TCP/IP Receive||Receive data over TCP/IP network from specified remote machine|
|TCP/IP Send||Send data over TCP/IP network to specified remote machine|
|UDP Receive||Receive data over UDP network from specified remote machine|
|UDP Send||Send data over UDP network to specified remote machine|
Access the Instrument Control Toolbox block library in two ways.
Send data to a loopback device connected to your computer and read that data back into a model.
Send data to an echo server using TCP/IP and read that data back into a model.
Make your simulation wait while the block receives or sends data.
Determine block execution frequency and relate to real-world time.
