A code snippet for writing samples of analog data follows. Digital input channels— DIChannel class. NI-DAQmx automatically performs this routing. This site uses cookies to offer you a better browsing experience. Instances of the NI-DAQmx Read function that are capable of reading multiple samples include an input to specify the number of samples per channel to read when the function executes.

The data acquisition applications you ddaqmx using NI-DAQmx benefit from an architecture designed to maximize damqx. This includes specifying whether the operation will be continuous or finite, selecting the number of samples to acquire or generate for finite operations, and creating a buffer ,abview needed. These instances correspond to the specific type of measurement or generation the virtual channel s perform.

When using the NI-DAQmx Trigger function, all valid trigger signals are available as the source input to the function. After rebooting your computer or adding new hardware to your system, you may see the NI Product Registration Wizard appear. Below is a snippet that shows how to use the function for a digital start trigger coming in on PFI0 and looking for a rising edge on that line.

The following snippet creates a simple analog input voltage channel:.

Each instance of the NI-DAQmx Write function has an auto start input to determine if the function will implicitly start the task if it has not already been explicitly started. Then, the source of the sample clock is read.

Installing LabVIEW and NI-DAQmx

Additionally, analog input, analog output, and counter operations use minimum value and maximum value inputs to configure and optimize the measurements and generations based on the minimum and maximum expected values of the signals.


The sample clock controls the rate at which samples are acquired or generated. Important product and driver updates Calibration reminders to keep your hardware in compliance Notifications about warranty expiration Simplified asset management for all your products on ni. These functions are described in detail to help you understand both their functionality and the types of applications in which they are used.

Analog input channels— AIChannel class. NI-DAQmx saves development time and improve the performance of data acquisition applications. If you do not have the original media that was shipped with your products, visit ni.

For example, in the following DAQmx Timing VI, the analog output sample clock signal of the device is available as the source of the sample clock for the analog input channels, without any explicit routing being performed.

NI-DAQmx and LabVIEW Compatibility – National Instruments

Many data acquisition applications require synchronization of different functional areas of a single device e. Furthermore, since the number of samples per channel input has been wired to a constant value of 10, each time the VI executes it will read 10 samples from each virtual channel.

In the running state, the task performs the specified acquisition or generation. Digital output channels— DOChannel class. After creating a Task object and a Channel, you can add a trigger to the task by calling the methods within the Task.

Please take a moment to register your Laview products to receive:. Once a task has been cleared, it cannot be used unless it is recreated. Both of these triggers can be configured to occur on a digital edge, an analog edge, or when an analog signal enters or leaves a window. For example, an input is required to specify the physical channels analog input and analog outputlines digitalor counter that the virtual channel s will use.


NI-DAQmx Properties provide access to all of the properties associated with a data acquisition operation. The following code snippet shows its use for an internal clock running at hz. This begins with an efficient state model that eliminates unnecessary reconfiguration. In the following figure, DAQ Assistant is configured to perform a finite strain measurement.

Getting Started with NI-DAQmx: Main Page – National Instruments

To achieve synchronization in data acquisition applications, just as trigger signals must be routed between the different functional areas of a single device and between multiple devices, timing signals must also be routed in the same manner. If prompted to choose vaqmx installation directory for your NI software, this should be the same root directory where you installed LabVIEW.
