Where Can I Find the PID and Fuzzy Logic Toolkit?

Updated Oct 1, 2019

Software

  • LabVIEW PID and Fuzzy Logic Toolkit
  • LabVIEW Real-Time Module
  • LabWindows/CVI
  • LabVIEW

Issue Details

  • I previously used the LabVIEW 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? 
  • I have LabVIEW Base and want to download the PID and Fuzzy Logic Toolkit.

Solution

With Respect to LabVIEW and LabWindows/CVI


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

In LabVIEW 2014 and later, the PID and Fuzzy Logic Toolkit is included natively within LabVIEW Full and Professional Development Systems, and does not require a separate license, installation, or activation. This is also true for LabWindows/CVI 2014 and later.
 

With Respect to LabVIEW Real-Time Module


Since the introduction of the LabVIEW Real-Time Module, a license for the module has always included within it a license for the PID and Fuzzy Logic Toolkit. If you have purchased the LabVIEW Real-Time Module, and you need to activate the toolkit, simply use the serial number of the module to activate the PID and Fuzzy Logic Toolkit.

Note: LabVIEW 2010 Real-Time Module is the last version of the module that includes the toolkit within its installer. In LabVIEW 2011 Real-Time Module and later, you will need to install the toolkit separately from the module.

Additional Information

Note: LabVIEW Base Development System does not come with the PID and Fuzzy Logic Toolkit.

In LabVIEW, the PID VIs and Fuzzy Logic VIs can be found in the Controls and Simulation category of the Functions Palette.
