Where Can I Find the PID and Fuzzy Logic Toolkit?

Issue Details

  • I previously used the PID and Fuzzy Logic Toolkit, and at the time, it was in a separate installation from LabVIEW. Where can I find the PID and Fuzzy Logic VIs now? Do I need a separate installation?
  • I know some versions of LabVIEW or the Real-Time Module include the PID and Fuzzy Logic Toolkit with their installation. How does the licensing and installation work with LabVIEW, the LabVIEW Real-Time Module and the PID and Fuzzy Logic Toolkit? 

Solution

The PID and Fuzzy Logic Toolkit is an add-on that was originally a toolkit purchased separately from the LabVIEW Development system. It was installed and licensed separately through its 2013 release. 

Starting with LabVIEW 2014, the PID and Fuzzy Logic Toolkit is included with LabVIEW Full and Professional editions. This is also true for LabWindows/CVI 2014. These, and all future versions, include the toolkit with their downloads and do not require a separate license or activation to use its functionality.

From the first introduction of the LabVIEW Real-Time (LVRT) Module, it has included in its software package the PID and Fuzzy Logic Toolkit. The toolkit's license is also included with the license of the LVRT module. There is no need to purchase the toolkit license separately from the LVRT module.

LabVIEW Real-Time 2010 is the last version of the module that includes the toolkit in its software installation. In later versions of the LabVIEW Real-Time Module (2011 and later) you will need to install the toolkit separately from the module, however the module still contains the license for the toolkit.

If you have purchased the LVRT module and you need to activate the toolkit, use the serial number of the module to activate the PID and Fuzzy Logic Toolkit.
