is daq bit resolution applied to the area defined in the daq assistant or well to the limits of physical blood of the daq hardware.

Hello, this is my first post here,

I've been wondering about this:

When you configure a new daq with the daq Assistant, is the resolution applied to the voltage / number of entries you define, or is it a fixed value per volt by channel.

For example:

I have a 6015 usb data acquisition, it has 16 inputs analog, 16-bit resolution 250 kech. / s 09:50 volts.

so is this as (2 ^ 16) / (16 * (-10-10)) = my resolution through volt?

or that this has nothing to do with the amount of channels,

If I want to measure more than 0 to 5 volts, my 16-bit apply from 0 to 5, or even more scale of data acquisition (which is 09:50 volts)

Thank you


You will get full-resolution 16 bits on each channel regardless of the number of channels is configured.  Renault most are multi-plexed if your specification of sampling RATE in usually a global significance that you can only scan channels with a sampling frequency = MAX RATE / number of CHANNELS.  Also, most NI Renault have a Programmable Gain amplifier on the front-end server, so if you specify a range of voltage smaller in your task configuration the amplifier will automatically increase the gain to use most of the possible BIT ADC.  You see care device and for more details...

  • That means the 14-bit resolution


    The '14-bit resolution' refers to the data entry for the PXI-5412 (via niFgen_CreateWaveformFromFileI16 or niFgen_CreateWaveformFromFileF64), the output of the PXI-5412 through channel 0, or both?  To clarify a bit, I know that niFgen_CreateWaveformFromFileI16 reads a 16-bit data source values, but the values contained in these 16 bits must be within a range of 14-bit?

    Some background information...  I use a system that contains a PXI-5412.  I am executing the example C code and change it to some arbitrary waveforms.  I have a Spectrum Analyzer, connected to the output of the PXI-5412 and tries to understand the results.  I use a data file that contains a chirp waveform.

    Generate data of chirp via Matlab.  I can save try it in different formats, but began to record off the coast under 16-bit.  In my application, I load the data using niFgen_CreateWaveformFromFileI16 and start the generation.  The output is fed to a Spectrum Analyzer, but the result doesn't look like a sizzle.  However, if I record the same data on as a double and use the SAME code (do NOT change the niFgen_CreateWaveformFromFileI16 function), I see a Twitter.  This result leads me to my question.

  • NSX 6.1.5 - distribute Firewall rules are not applied to the empty virtual switches

    Hi all

    We have a big problem since we have improved the NSX to version 6.1.3 to 6.1.5.

    I get a bug following this procedure:

    . In vSphere Client--> NSX, create a new virtual switch

    . Distribuer distribute the firewall, create a rule to deny traffic between two survey periods. Example: source: all, destination: all, service: all, Action: reject, applies: the new virtual switch

    . Connect two VMS to the virtual switch and you can test the other (this is false due to the firewall rule)

    . Publish ANY changes on the firewall distribute (could not be related to our rule. Example to change its name to another rule), and the rule starts to operate.

    Additional steps:

    . Remove the firewall rule

    . Identify the virtual machines in the virtual switch

    . Re-create the firewall with applies rule: the virtual switch (still empty)

    . Connect the virtual machines and ping between them. Yet once, the rule does not work.

    . Publish ANY changes on distributed firewalls and the rule starts to operate.

    NSX version 6.1.3 and 6.2.0 both work correctly. But I can't downgrade to 6.1.3 or upgrade to 6.2.0. 6.2.1 upgrade involves the upgrade of several other components.

    I use the following versions:

    . NSX 6.1.5

    . vCenter Version 5.5.0 Build 2414847

    . ESXi, 5.5.0, 2718055

    Please, any ideas?

    Thank you very much


    She seems to be a bug in 6.1.5 NSX and there is no solution for this yet. There are workarounds, but none of them apply to my "fully automated" environment

    We need to wait for a fix or upgrade to NSX 6.2.1 requiring an upgrade of several components as well.


  • How to set the sampling interval using DAQ hardware?

    Now I have a sensor capability and hardware DAQ 24 bit (

    The DAQ hardware has the 50kS/s maximum sampling rate. My question is how to define the range of data collection. For example, if I set the sampling rate of 2000, continuous sample mode, I use DAQmx in a while loop and set the "number of samples per channel" to 100. I want to plot these data over time using a XY Chart and also save this data. So I add a 'Medium' function to get the average of 100 samples per each loop (medium, there are 20 release of data per second). But when I put a 'number of samples per channel' much more small (for more data per second), there are a few problems. It seems that the program cannot read the data as much and get the average at a higher frequency. I don't know where is the problem. Overall, the collection of data more frequently? Maybe I didn't articulate my question. I'll upload a simple program later if necessary. Thank you.

  • Tecra P11 - No Windows 7 64-bit display driver on the Toshiba site


    I just got a new laptop today and installed Windows 7 64-bit. Looking at the website of Toshiba (win 7 page) I discovered that there are no drivers listed for the P11. Given that my laptop came with a Windows 7 license I at least expect that Windows 7 drivers would be on the Page of the Toshiba Support. If someone could post a link that would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    I ve checked page Australian support and drivers Win7 does not exist, yet.
    To be honest this Tecra is unknown to me, but if you have newer model laptop, I assume that all of the drivers, tools, and utilities will soon be available. There is no other connection.

    I m wondering you did not check the support page before you do a clean install.
    By the way: this license key, activations belongs to delivered version Win7 and you cannot use it for the installation of the operating system with the Microsoft installation disc.

  • Diffenernce / choice between using a shielded connection block (2120 BNC) or the DAQ hardware?


    We build a new configuration of lab that will need hardware in the loop detection by sensors data and formatting / analysis using programs and possibly return data in material for the control.

    We are confused that the connection block shielded BNC (who has the outputs and analog inputs / digital) or a DAQ hardware for can be used?

    What are the main differences between them?

    shed light on the above is very appreciated...

    Data acquisition is what is the real measure of the signals.  The Terminal is just a simple way to route signals for data acquisition.  If you can actually the terminal box, cable and card DAQ.

    I highly recommend talking to your representative local sales OR to make sure that you get exactly what you need.

  • We can connect the output of the sensor directly to the DAQ hardware or any interface necessary?

    We can connect the output of the sensor directly to the DAQ hardware or any interface necessary? If so wat kinda necessary interface?

    How to change the sensor output to match entry-level data acquisition?

    If the sensor output beyond daq range is provided. What are its effects? pls answer

    -It depends on your signal and the type of device you have. Your DAQ provides a package of signals? Also, what type of signal you want to measure? You must select DAQ that matches that. Take a look at the following before you start:

    Getting started with NO-DAQmx: Main Page

    And take a look at table 1 in the following article to wire your signal to the right:

    Wiring and considerations of noise for analog signals

    -You will need to use external circuitory to match the input of data acquisition range.

    -You could damage the unit.

    If you have any other questions, please after return. And, don't forget to give more details about your configuration, the hardware and what you're trying to do.

  • Determine the number of traditional DAQ hardware using Labview.


    Anyone can answer the question:

    Regarding materials traditional DAQ, for example the DMM OR-4060, how

    can I programmatically determine the number of device which can be seen in MAX?

    With the help of Labview 8.5, I looked into the following function libraries:




    None of the libraries above seem to provide access the number of traditional DAQ hardware

    property, which is automatically assigned.


    I have a 18 PXI chassis containing 2 DMM, in housing 3 and 14.

    The DMM may be a mixture of type OR-4060 or NOR-4070.

    The system is controlled by a Teststand sequence employing IVI - DMM


    When you set the IVI logical name step, I am referring to IVI device defined Sessions

    Max - rutime determined.

    Labview VISA functions using I can determine the model, i.e. 4060 or 4070.

    Because the DMM just locate into the slots 3 or 14, then the devices NOR-4070

    are accessible using the following descriptors of resources: PXI1Slot3 or


    (The 4070 is compatible DAQmX.)

    So for devices OR-4070, I can predefine 2 Sessions of IVI device, knowing

    It will be sufficient for all occasions, when I run my Teststand sequence, which will be

    determine what device session to use at run time.

    But I'm stuck for the NOR-4060.

    At the Session of the device, I have to give a descriptor of resource the following

    format: DAQ::x (where x is the device number)

    I could create device 18 sessions each reference to a different DAQ::x, but to select

    the good pair during execution, I would need to programmatically determine the device

    number, i.e. the value of x.

    Where my question.

    The closest I came to a solution was an entry of the Knowledge Base that said that the

    Assigned device number would be the same as the slot number, providing the

    Number of the device had not previously configured manually.

    Unfortunately, our device numbers have been changed manually and maybe in the future.

    All popular solutions.


    Hi Gary,.

    Good afternoon and I hope that your well today.

    Thanks for your post and I want to help you solve your problems.

    I don't think there is just a function that you can use to identify and collect information on all cards with your. For traditional DAQ devices in particular I suggest using the of DAQ devices get.

    If you look at this link,

    SAL posted an example VI entitled, find dev

    You can get information such as serial number, Dev name and the Base address.

    The assistance of the respective drivers to collect information you could generate an array of strings with the information that you need all the slots.
