DAQmx simulated digital input

I cannot using the simulated digital input function.

I create a digital input simulated in single channel MAX - a simulation NI PCI-6534, port 0/0, mode of acquisition is 1 sample (on request)

When I click on the 'run' button I see the led turn on and turn off, as I expect.

However, when I remove this LbView task, I can not display flashes regardless of what I tried.

Without doubt, I missed some basic notion. Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong?

(VI attached).


Try starting the task explicitly before the loop (and the task of clearing after the loop):

  • How can I set up a digital input task to read continuous samples?

    I am trying to create an exclusively digital task that will make digital readings at a rate timed by the material using a PCIe-6509. However, when I try to put the task timing as follows (which works on a PCIe-6509), I get the following error:

    Requested value is not supported for this property value. The value of the property may be invalid because it is in conflict with another property.

    Property: NationalInstruments.DAQmx.Timing.SampleTimingType

    Required value: NationalInstruments.DAQmx.SampleTimingType.SampleClock

    Possible values: NationalInstruments.DAQmx.SampleTimingType.OnDemand, NationalInstruments.DAQmx.SampleTimingType.ChangeDetection

    Task name: DigitalInputTask

    State code:-200077

    The relevant parts of my code are:

        public class DigitalInputReader: IDisposable
    public DigitalInputReader()
    dataReadyHandler = new System.AsyncCallback (DataReadyEventHandler);

    daqmxTask = new DigitalInputTask();
    daqmxTask.Configure (Globals.NI);

    daqmxTask.Control (TaskAction.Verify);
    daqmxTask.Control (TaskAction.Commit);

    daqmxReader = new DigitalMultiChannelReader (daqmxTask.Stream);

    public class DigitalInputTask: task

    public DigitalInputTask(): {base ("DigitalInputTask")}

    public virtual void Configure (NiConfiguration niConfig)
    <= niconfig.digitalinputs.count="" -="" 1;="">
    String physicalChannelName = niConfig.Device + "/ port" + niConfig.DigitalInputs [i]. Port.ToString () + "/ line" + niConfig.DigitalInputs [i]. Channel.ToString ();
    String nameToAssignToChannel = niConfig.DigitalInputs [i]. Name;

    DIChannel ch is this. DIChannels.CreateChannel (physicalChannelName, nameToAssignToChannel, ChannelLineGrouping.OneChannelForEachLine);
    c. InvertLines = niConfig.DigitalInputs [i]. InvertLines;
    var signalSource = "";
    This. Timing.ConfigureSampleClock (signalSource, Globals.MachineSettings.SampleRate, SampleClockActiveEdge.Rising, SampleQuantityMode.ContinuousSamples);// Globals.MachineSettings.SamplesPerChannel);

    The last call to Task.Timing.ConfigureSampleClock, it's which throw errors.

    Of the options available, or SampleTimingType.OnDemand or NationalInstruments.DAQmx.SampleTimingType.ChangeDetection provide the same precisely timed calls that I am familiar with the analog input interruptions.

    How is it possible in a digital task?  I mean, it seems that I could set up another task to do call by material for the production of a clock signal and use the ChangeDetection synchronization mode, but this seems a bit complicated for what should be easy to do.  What Miss me?

    Update: I thought about it.  You cannot call ConfigureSampleClock when the digital input card is a device of 650 x, because these devices have any automated examples of clock.  They are configured to run in mode default finite samples.  You must make all sample synchronizing with these devices in the software.

    Be cautious, however, because the .NET timers ensure they put any faster than their scheduled interval.  In practice, they are usually 5 to 10 ms slow by tick.  This means that if you want to read samples every 100 ms by sample clock, you'd end up reading all 108 ms samples.  All counters based on the elapsed time and number of samples would be away after a few seconds of it.

    Instead, you must do one of four things: write a doggone driver that runs in ring 0 and interfaces with the PCIe card in the required interval (i.e. on NC, not you, in practice), tolerate the inclination of the clock, use a multimedia timer as an interruption audio or video that is more likely to respond to the correct interval, or , my solution, an accurate clock allows you to set the interval of the timer.  I wrote the following code to the timer:

    var CorrectiveStopwatch = new System.Diagnostics.Stopwatch();
    var CorrectedTimer = new System.Timers.Timer()

    Interval = targetInterval,
    AutoReset = true,
    CorrectedTimer.Elapsed += (o, e) =>
    var actualMilliseconds =;

    Adjust the next tick so that it's accurate
    EG: Stopwatch says we're at 2015 ms, we should be at 2000 ms
    2000 + 100 - 2015 = 85 and should trigger at the right time
    var StopwatchCorrectedElapsedMilliseconds = newInterval +.

    If we're over 1 target interval too slow, trigger ASAP!
    NvelIntervalle = 1;

    CorrectedTimer.Interval = NvelIntervalle;

    StopwatchCorrectedElapsedMilliseconds += targetInterval;

    I hope this helps someone.

  • 6259 switch digital input to output

    Hi all

    I use the NI PXI-6259. One of the digital inputs I want to switch to digital output, send a serial code and switch again one digital input.

    Does anyone have experience with this kind of configuration change during execution of the VI program.

    Thank you

    Basically delete the task that he had as an input, create another task DAQmx with channel configured as output, this task, erase it, create the task with channel configured as an input.

    If you need a tight with switching schedule, I wouldn't recommend this Board.  You may need to set up a Council of RIO with LabVIEW FPGA.

  • virtual digital input problem


    I'm learning about labview data acquisition. So, I made a base for digital vi, with a virtual digital input device. For some reason any I can not output anything other then zero, but when I run the daq assistant (when you install assistant daq) Boolean values between 0 and 1. But, in my VI I can't get any other input then set to zero.

    I enclose my VI.

    Thank you

    You should associate your stop button at the entrance to Stop on the DAQ Assistant.  You are openening and close the task each time when you do not do this.  According to me, which is also reset the activation/deactivation of the simulated device.

  • 9421 sinking digital input module toggles output

    I have a digital input module 9421.  I'm only using a single port (0).  The line is 'high' all the time.  I can see it on the lights and the tool MAX.  I can turn on/off the line and see the LED and MAX change, so I know I have the cable correctly thing.  But in normal operation, it is always powered.

    It is, when I run LabVIEW mode trace with a probe on the output ExpressVI DAQ, I see that all the other times my code, the output of flicks from true to FALSE and vice versa... and so on.  The acquisition of data ExpressVI is inside a while loop.

    Any thoughts?

  • With the help of digital input for Boolean control?


    I have spent a lot of time to search but have not found a solution to this...

    I have LV 2015 with chassis NI 9188 and module NI 9425 DI.  Try to use the input signal to assign a State structure machine program and/or events in real time.  It would be acceptable to have an indicator show the status of the input line, since I can use it elsewhere with Value (Signaling).

    Please do not ask for the code - the problem is quite simple.  I just want to use the digital inputs to program control as a T/F.  I want just the program to analyze the State of the input and decisions - a bit like a PLC.

    All I seem to be able to extract is data of digital waveforms with a task DAQmx.

    It's not a trigger - I already use a trigger to start the analog acquisition.

    Formulate the problem in a simpler way...  What to do if you had a digital input module and you wanted to see the status of each input line in the form of a LED on your face in real time.  How would you do it?

    I really appreciate the help!

    I would like to write what has been read to the Terminal.

    From what I can tell, you want to just read a single static value from your digital line.  You can then simply read the value of one and do some logic with her.

    No, you can't.

    The problem with E-Series cards, is that they have just static DIOs, so you cannot have their clock.

    You would need a M-series card for that where you have correlated DIOs.

  • DAQmx write (digital) works in mode "highlight execution", and not in normal mode


    I would like to create a simple vi (it will work as a Subvi watchdog in a project) to send TTL 5V 0V 3 seconds 3 seconds, by performing an iteration in a loop.

    Use a card PCI-6703 to that effect (beside that I use for the generation of analog static waveform on several stations). I also have a DAQ USB6212 card, and I have test my digital output with this USB card digital input via MAX.

    The strange thing is that when I run my code in mode "highlight execution", I get what I want: 5V 3 seconds, 3 seconds, 0V, iteration.

    When I try to start it in 'normal' mode, I only see the 5V constantly from the output through my digital entry in MAX.

    I know I'm doing something wrong, but no idea what...

    Please find attached the vi simple.

    Thanks in advance!

    Kind regards

    Your overall loop time is 3 seconds (3000 MS of waiting).  You have a 3 second delay between writing the real and write the value false.  But as soon as the false is written, the loop reminds immediately (the second set of 3 waiting operates in parallel to the writing-Delay-Write sequence) so the real gets drafted immediately after the fake.  It will be just a blip.  So that if you run in the execution of climax, the code goes pretty slowly so that you see the Boolean value False as LabVIEW takes his time data flowing drawing wires.

    Put a delay function after your DAQmx write wrong, as well.

  • The iMac has a digital input?


    I searched for centuries for the answer to what I thought was a simple question - the iMac has one digital input (optical or other)?

    I know that the headphone port doubles as an analog audio to as well as an optical digital output, but this port also accepts input optical? If not, is it possible to enter a digital signal via a USB port?

  • Digital input to Toshiba 46TL-&gt; no analog audio output to amplifier

    Hi all

    When I connect a video source (e.g. computer laptop via DLNA) to my 46TL, output TV audio analog (red/white taken connected to an amplifier) does not work.

    It does, however, watching television.

    Is it possible to configure the TV to read the audio data from digital input (HDMI/DLNA) to the analog output?

    Thank you for the help

    Not quite what series of TLxxx you have, but for example the TL938 supports a digital (optical) audio output port that provides a digital audio signal.
    Why n t connect the amplifier to the TV using this Jack?

    Connectors for component video / audio to the rear of the TV are the ports of ENTRY and not the OUTPUT ports. So, you can send an audio signal to the TV and not the amplifier output.

  • Interrupt with digital input


    I am relative new to LabWindows.

    I have a program that starts when I press a button. The program controls a motor. Now I press a button on the motor and the program must cease (Safty Stop). The button is connected to a digital input on my card (PCI Express 6343). Now, I have the question, how do I program the interruption? I know not how do in CVI (controls the digital input whenever the program runs).

    I hope someone can help me.

    Best regards

    The starting point must be to look relevant examples that NEITHER provide:

    ReadDigChan - ChangeDetection.prj


    ReadDigChan - ChangeDetectionEvent.prj

    However, I must advice against using a PC as a "Safety Stop". As a general rule, the PC are completely inappropriate to the core functions of security, unless you follow the standard IEC 62304 relevent to the letter. Tip: it's hard to do with a PC. To implement safety functions such as emergency and interlocks stops you buy much better a specialist dedicated safety relay and following the instructions of the manufacturer. If life-threatening energy (either electric or medcanical) may be present, then consult a professional engineer.

  • How to combine several digital inputs for playback?

    Hi comrade Labview users.

    I just started using LabView and I am very new to it. I know him understand how it works and you have something to work, but I need to be more effective.

    I use DIO96H - USB DAQ Measurement Computing, which includes 96 digital inputs. I use the DAQ to acquire the activations of relay and record the number of times the relays flips.

    Basically, I created a digital input read and then copy & pasted 95 times... it works but I know that's not the best way to use LabView.

    How can I change the digital input (Di1/1stPortA/dev0) in multiples so that it iterates through all 96 channels without copying and pasting the same pattern over and over again?


    You have the correct polymorphic instance for playback? Once again, for the material OR it would be a NChan Read. There should be a similar choice if I remember correctly.

  • Digital input current limits


    After reading everything that specifications and manuals, I decided to ask a general question.

    In the data sheets, user guides I've read, in general, there are two warnings for DIO:

    -Do not connect the outputs digital circuits which operates above the limits.

    -Do not drive the line with tensions outside its operating range.

    Generally speaking they tell me I need to know when dealing with output and voltage when dealing with entries. So I have this question, can I wire a power supply for digital inputs directly without exceeding its "beach of normal operation and without any protection circuit? In fact, my feelings, this is not possible. But why certain documents produced clearly mention that the impedance internal inputs while that of others is not clear those? How can I determine if I can connect a signal directly to an entry (for example USB-6525 indicates a current limiter circuit, but I don't see a clear explanation in the datasheet USB-6251)?

    As long as the input voltages are within specified limits, no damage will be the DAQ hardware. Logic devices often have two lines of non overlapping input, one for low input and high input. If the input voltage lies between the beaches, the performance of the device can be unpredictable. Also, check your power supply to make sure that this doesn't not exceeding when turned on or off as that could exceed the DAQ limit.
