LabVIEW is the most widely used graphical programming environments for designing Process control systems. Unlike conventional text-based programming languages such as C, C++ and MATLAB, graphical programming involves block-based code developments, allowing a more efficient mechanism to build and analyze control systems. In this paper a LabVIEW environment has been employed as a graphical user interface for monitoring & controlling the level and Flow operation, by visualizing both the closed loop performance and the user selected control conditions, while the real time standalone system was established using cFP 2020, AIO 610 modules with 100BaseTX Ethernet. This tool has been applied to the ON/OFF controller for a binary tank column. By means of such integrated environments the control designer is able to monitor and control the plant behavior and optimize the response. We achieved a transfer rate of 100 Mb/s and able to control the system with online and offline capabilities.
