i need to find a way to control the syringe pump in my lab so that i can control the flow rate in real time from the computer, ideally from a simple dial i scale up or down. the pump can connect to the computer using a rs-232 port and someone suggested to me that labview would be the easiest program to do this with. I have never used labview before and have no idea what i am doing. any help would be appreciated or if u know of an easier way to create the program i need by all means recommend it. thanks.
