In addition to creating and editing sequences, ViPE can be used to execute sequences on any target capable of running the NI Veristand run-time engine. During run-time, the operator is able to observe which part of the sequence is currently running. ViPE also contains the ability to include and parametrize sub-sequences if they are created in NI VeriStand Stimulus Profile Editor.
ViPE has predefined blocks that execute various functions. These functions include different acquisition and reporting methods for measurement data and alarms, which can be configured to execute pre-defined actions if specified limit values are met. When these actions occur, the original test sequence can be paused or aborted. Additionally, the user has the possibility to store sequences as library blocks, add custom icons and use them in other sequences. Thus, the user is able to build custom libraries.
