Calendar and the problems of data collection with the DAQ Assistant

Hello NOR Developer area,

I am a Novice of LabVIEW and have seen how helpful you all can be, and if I come to ask for your help.

I'm having some trouble with a VI I built that specifies an input voltage, a SCB - 100 connected to a PCI-6031E and converts this tension in a temperature displayed on a waveform table. The goal is to give a constant reading of the temperature and display it in a chart for as long that the VI is running (and to reset the chart the next time the tracks of VI).

The problems I've encountered currently are:

-After a few minutes of the VI running, I get an error message 200279: tried to read samples that are no longer available. The requested sample was already available, but has since been replaced. (to the DAQ Assistant express VI).

-I don't know how to change my chart so that the minimum value X is both during which the VI was launched and have the maximum X value increases with each iteration of the loop. Currently, I have the VI get the time system and contributing to the property node X scale. This worked for the graph of the voltage, but not for the temperature chart

I appreciate those of you who took the time to read my post.

Thank you all for your help.

What property node is talking?
I do not understand that many different data types. How can I go on the treatment of all the data?

(Did you mean I should wire 'blue' data for mathematical functions rather than using the node property tension?)


In fact, one of the nodes property.  I mean specifically the tension property node.  But in reviewing, I noticed the other nodes in property for the chart.  Just set auto-scaling to the X scale and that should take care of two of the nodes property (right click on the graph, X scale-> AutoScale X Scale).  I also recommend placing your mathematical functions in a Subvi to make things easier to read.  Attached, that's what I think you're after.

I hope that these small tweaks will speed things up enough to avoid your error.  If this isn't the case, then we should begin to look at the design of producer/consumer model or take readings at the same time.  It might also be worth looking away the DAQ Assistant and DAQmx real screws.  But one step at a time.

    Hey again,

    Sometimes a problem with Firefox can be a result of malware installed on your computer, you may not be aware of.

    You can try these free programs to search for malicious software that work with your existing anti-virus software:

  • Calibration of thermocouples in the DAQ Assistant, using data from spreadsheet?

    Hi all

    For my first application LabVIEW, I'm looking to automate the calibration of thermocouples by measuring their response at different temperatures in a dry well Sizer. I get temperatures of thermocouples six by SCXI 1303/1102/1600 and have six channels put in place in one of my subVIs in the DAQ assistant.

    I compare these values to temperature calibrator that I am acquiring by VISA series in an other Subvi. All these values are written in a .csv file.

    Can I import these data into the DAQ Assistant to use for calibration? Is there a simpler way to associate with the channel calibration data? Currently, I could manually copy - paste the cells on the worksheet in the calibration sheet, but that seems just silly.

    If there is everything that I could provide to help solve the problem, let me know!

    Thank you!

    Hi Zoysiamo,

    It is possible to automate the calibration screws DAQmx at a lower level, in particular the DAQmx channel property node. Using you can specify advance nationwide and the values on the scale for your channel. I recommend you take a look at this example of the community. The property node configuration will be similar to, as illustrated below:

  • Precise triggering voltage input and output generation in the DAQ Assistant


    I wonder if anyone has come across a simular problem with the synchronization of input and output voltage. I use a box 11 LabView and NI USB-6259. I have been using the DAQ Assistant to configure the input and output channel. In particular, my task is to generate a single rectangular "pulse" as the output voltage to drive a coil and once the pulse went to get a signal from a sensor of magnetic field and get a power spectrum. This means that the order and the time during which the DAQ Assistant is used is extremely important. For example, the output voltage channel must be opened first for 2 seconds. Subsequently, the channel of input voltage must be open for 1 second, in which the sensor signal is obtained and post-processed. Only after these tasks are performed in this order he can can be repeated in a loop until the experiment is over. I don't know how to trigger data acquisition assistants (one for entry) and the other for the voltage output correctly. Y at - it a trick?

    See you soon


    Hi Dave,.

    Thank you that I wired the error strings but the timing issue was unrelated to it. In the DAQ assistant, I simply had to choose the continuous aquistion of the 'samples' methods 'N-switch' for input and output voltage and all works fine now.

    Thanks again


  • New Daq with the Daq Assistant in the filtering code


    I have a NI USB-6225 DaqMx I used a couple of years. When I started with LabVIEW, I found the Daq Assistant to the best way to measure the voltage with my Daq etc. My company has purchased another DaqMx NI USB-6225 and now I have a big problem: the Daq Assistant in my old Vi does not work with the new data acquisition. I understand why there is this problem, but I do not know how to solve. I found this code on the forum who finds that Daq is connected:

    The problem is that Daq Assistant do not have an entry for it, and it gives me an error if I try to run the code with a different device than the original, I used when I created the code.

    Is there a way to solve this, so I don't have to convert all the Assistants Daq normal code?

    Hello again,

    two options:

    (1) as the old software is related to 'Dev1' you must rename your new device to this alias and skip/rename the old device (and lack).

    (2) rewrite your old software does not become is not dependent on the name of the alias for the data acquisition card...

    It's your choice!

  • Is the DAQ Assistant compatible with LabView7?

    I am equipped with a LabView7 and a NI DAQ - 6015 Pad and am trying to monitor the temperature with two thermocouples. I searched some tutorials online, but most suggest using assistant DAQ, which is not listed in the section of my functions palette entry. I have downloaded the NOR-most recent DAQmx driver who is supposed to be compatible with LabView 7.x. I don't know if this means that it is compatible with LabView 7.0. I still do not see the DAQ assistant appear.

    Any help or suggestion (about DAQ assistant or how to program in LabView7 to solve my problem) is greatly appreciated!

    Thank you.

    It looks like the DAQmx latest version is 8.1 which will work with LV 7.0

  • Why don't the graph and the table of the DAQ Assistant, when it is run more than once

    I have a vi that collects data and the poster. When I press the run button, it collects data as expected. But, if I changed the samples or the rate and press the run button, it collects data on the previous values of the sample and rate. I have the release of the vi and run it again to perceive in the correct values of the sample and rate.

    I plugged it without the DAQ Assistant and everything works as expected. Thanks for your help. Now, just curious as to why DAQ Assistant does not work well.

    Thanks again!

  • Recovery of the DAQ Assistant data acquired


    I'm currently dealing with a continuous data using NOR cDAQ-9174 proposed acquisition and recording of analog input signals of a built-in three-measuring probe.

    I built a simple vi using DAQ Assistant to acquire data and write to an output .txt - rather than .tdms using Signal Express.

    On a day 10 cycle of data acquisition computer was mistakenly turned off - leaving the empty output .txt file.  LabView recovered the VI cut and I wonder if there is a way I can access the data that has been saved by the DAQ Assistant which can be saved in temporary files etc..

    I have no idea where that might be, since you cannot delve deeper down into the 'levels' of DAQ assistant as you would a sub - vi.

    Just as a note aside to apologize my stupidity - I realize that all the data at the end of the writing task is stupid and completely avoidable... but I worked for a date limit.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.


    The most likely answer is not, unfortunately. It looks like you were a table of data at every point of the construction and then measure he writes at the end. In this case, unless you have explicitly recorded data in a temporary file, it is located right in volatile memory, waiting for you to do something with it.

    I realize that this isn't what you want to hear, as it comes to the time of submission of draft / year...

    If you post your VI (preferably version LV2012 or below), I can have a look to see if there is anything obvious.

  • Units of the number of samples and rates for the DAQ Assistant units


    I use the DAQ assistant for analog voltage of an input OR data acquisition card. What is the difference between the rate and the number of samples in the DAQ assistant and what are the units of the two?

    Thank you.

    The number of samples is how many discrete to measures. Rate (per second) is how fast to acquire the specified number of samples.

    If number of samples is 100 and the rate is 1000 samples per second, then the acquisition would take 0.1 second (100 / 1000).


  • Device simulated in MAX, auto test without error and has work Test panels, but is not displayed in the DAQ assistant.

    I am trying to create a development machine, where we can test the new code without using our physical hardware. I followed this guide to set up a system of simulation. I get to step 3.2 b, but the device does not appear in the DAQ assistant. MAX, the device self test and gites calibrated successfully, and when I open the test panels, I see some sort of signal. I guess that's a default entry simulated since I didn't that device to look for anything? Note that two devices, I am creating the show upward into the devices section and Interfaces, but that, even after running auto calibrate, automatic Calibration date is not yet specified.

    When I try to test the device and create a voltage according to the guide, I can't see a device in the creator of data acquisition task.

    Steps 1 and 2 of this guide are of course met. Step 3 is not, but this is not surprising because a simulated device is in device in any case manager. Also, I'm not under RT, so step 4 is satisfied.

    Someone at - it ideas?

    That would be because the PXI-5124 is a digitizer not an analog input device.  You must use the NI SCOPE not NOR DAQmx driver

  • Replacement of simulate signal VI with the DAQ assistant


    I have a VI fucntioning, where signal comes 2 simulate VI signals and is being recorded.

    I replaced that with the DAQ assistant. I want to know if the wiring is correct and if it will give me the same result as the simulated VI.

    Thank you.

    Hello Andy,

    Thanks for the reply, yes I did that as well, another way to do it is the 'split signal VI' that automatically separates the signal into 2 channels, most of the high sons being Ch 0


  • Switch between the graph and the table as in the DAQ Assistant

    I was wondering if it is possible or if anyone has any success making a user interface, such as the DAQ Assistant, where you can switch between a graphical output or an array of the recorded signals.  I would like to have this feature in my code .VI.  From now on, I'm just a waveform graph in my front panel.  I'd love to be able to alternate between this waverform table and a table of output values. I have attached a few screenshots to explain what I mean.


    Personally, I like the TAB ideas that have been validated, but you can also use property nodes and the visible value.

    Good luck.


  • Error with 2 Daq assistant


    Another noob to join the community. Here's my question.

    What I am doing wrong? I use 2 assistants for the acquisition of data on the module of NI9401 for output and input digital. I use it to generate signals of 2. If I test with 1 it works but if I go to 2 or more it fails. This is the error I get. I also added the program as an attachment.

    Thanks in advance.


    This error means that the DIO task is reserved and cannot be obtained by one of the DAQ Assistant. There is actually a program example on what you want to do. It can be found here:

    This example does not use the DAQ Assistasnt but the DAQmx API screws, (which use the DAQ Assistant also still). If the order is not important (and since these DIO tasks are software timed this probably isn't a problem, you can also choose to use the cluster of error one DAQ assistant and connect to another see annex VI.) Do this way force you a data acquisition task to wait on the other a finish. In this way, they don't run to preventing it from time even for the error to occur.

    Kind regards

  • There is no entries or exits on the DAQ assistant to connect to

    Hello world

    I'm new to labview and have encountered difficulties with the DAQ assistant.  I'm under v8.0, v8.7.1 OR-DAQmx labview and have an acquisition data PCI-6224 installed.  It seems that every time I have let down the DAQ assistant (assistant of the instrument and data acquisition simulated has the same question) on the block diagram and configure it, it don't y no input or output that I can wire a control or an indiactor to.  Y at - there a step I'm missing somewhere?

    Thanks in advance!

    Try to repair the DAQmx driver through control panels and see if that solved the problem.
