In order to effectively monitor the trace of the welding quality, improve the equipment utilization and save energy in the process of ship welding, a group monitoring system for welding power supply was developed by using ZigBee wireless communication technology and Labview software. The design of the whole system is mainly introduced, including the circuit of slave computer, the development of node program, the structure of ZigBee network and the design of host computer software. Considering the complexity of the workshop environment,the mesh network structure of ZigBee network is adopted,the system test showed that the whole system ran stably and could monitor the welding power supply in real time.
