Reading data SCXI-1600

Hi Experts,

I'm new to this interface SCXI. Kindly help me in the framework

I'm developing an application that will be using the SCXI-1125 and SCXI-1600 controller module. In the application, I want to allow the user to configure the different tasks in the front panel.

What are the necessary controls in the front panel to allow the user to configure the task

How to read the data of the SCXI-1600,

How to differentiate the eight channel data from 1125 SCXI thro SCXI-1600

Thanks in advance

True, you can't simulate the SCXI-1600. This means that you will not be able to run your code without the hardware. For simulation purposes, you can, however, use another device that would work in the same way for the SCXI-1600 in terms of triggering, resolution and the frequency of sampling.

In regard to programming, would use it DAQmx as I'd mentioned. There is no specific examples for the SCXI-1600, but you really do not need them. The SCXI-1600 is basically a data acquisition module, which is located in a SCXI format with a USB connection. Your software is concerned, you will use DAQmx to read data from it. Then, take a look at DAQmx examples as data on data acquisition devices.

Your task will define how many channels you will read. Since you are reading a mixture of measures (temperature, pressure and tension may be simple), you will need to decide whether to create separate tasks for each of these measures that are configured to be specific to this type of measure, or to create a task that reads simply all channels not adjusted values (i.e. raw tensions) and then put you in the scale of values in your code. If you open the example Finder and navigate through the input and output hardware tree-> DAQmx-> Analog measures you will see different categories for types of measure. Many of them have graphics.

If you have not already done so, you can start here:

  • How to replace the SCXI-1600?

    Since our IT obliges us to switch to Win7, 64-bit edition, our SCXI-1600 becomes unnecessary because there is no 64 bit driver (Sidenote: the device is still available in the online catalog without obvious by the lack of such a driver warning). in an another tread on this subject, Seth_B advise

    For example, the USB-6251 device mass termination that provides 5 x faster sampling with 7 x better accuracy, USB 2.0 transfer speeds of data transfer more reliable and is only about $300 more including the cable between the DAQ hardware and the SCXI chassis.

    I need more information - I don't understand how exactly who will replace the SCXI-1600 as a connection to the SCXI block, for me, it looks like an ordinary e/s USB device must connect directly to several types of e/s analog and digital through a CBS. What cable should I connect the chassis SCXI containing other maps, how she will turn upward in MAX - in short: I need to decide if the replacement is more trouble with respect to particular software rewriting labview and other efforts that fight OUR guys to keep the System 32 bits for this testbed.

    Hello MBohnet,

    To avoid work or acquisition of new equipment on your part then I would recommend against your IT Department to maintain 32-bit system.

    If you need to upgrade to Windows 7 64 bit then the 6251 is an option at your disposal to communicate and scanning information of you modules SCXI.

    There are steps for setting this up

    1. Remove the 1600 chassis.
    2. Fix a module SCXI-1349 in the back one of the SCXI modules. Then use an SH68-68-EPM cable (the cable is listed on the pricing for the device 6251 tab) to connect the SCXI-1349 module to the PCI-6251.
    3. Your configuration in Measurement & Automation Explorer would be alike in what concerns the addition of your device, but you will point to the 6251 as the digitizer.
    4. The quote above regarding the (5 x faster sampling rate) applies only when using the USB-6251 in parallel mode.
    5. You wouldn't have to make changes to code with switching on the material element.
    6. Also, if you are not connected to the USB take a look at the PCIe-6320 or PCIe-6341 with the SHC-68-68-EPM cable. They are less expensive than the USB-6251 housing alternatives.

  • Error - 10401 with the SCXI-1600

    Hi all

    I have a system of aquistion of data based on the SCXI-1600 and already work with LV6.1 software and I want it to be used with LV12 improve.

    When I tried to record data using MAX I have, it works very well. but trying to save data in labVIEW with function "I acquire waveforms", it gives me error attached 10401.

    can someone help me solve this problem?

    Thanks in advance,

    Ahmed Elsayed

    This function is part of the outdated traditional DAQ driver and your image shows DAQmx is active for the device. You should carry all your code to use DAQmx. DAQmx was introduced with LabVIEW 7. If you choose to stay with the outdated driver, you will need to do a reset and switch drivers, but assistance will be limited.

  • "Could not read data" when you try to print from Android

    Hello. I have a printer HP Officejet 6700 Premium, which is connected via ePrint/HP connected to my Google account so that I can print from my Google devices (Cloud Print). While this works very well when printing from my laptop (29 Chrome on Ubuntu 13.04), it does not when printing my Nexus 10 (Android 4.3) or my Galaxy Nexus (CyanogenMod 10.1.3). I tried printing both outside and inside the network on which the printer is on, but whenever I get "could not read data" in the Cloud Print dialog box. It seems that Cloud Print knows that the printer exists, since it is on the list, but it cannot communicate with the printer. Any way to solve this problem? He's good enough additional features only on my previous printer, who died of old age.

    It seems to me that the question is in fact Cloud Print related. Here is the support page:

    Remember that Google Cloud Print is still in beta phase. Good luck tomslominski.

  • HP Pavilion X 2: HP Pavilion XP cannot read data from USB DVDs

    We bought a HP 10-ND200ND (HP pavilion X 2) in the Mediamarkt and tried to install Microsoft Office from a DVD via a DVD USB Samsung player.  This was not possible. According to Support Mediamarkt this product is a Tablet and so cannot read data DVD´s. Only General to play music. To buy a laptop computer for this application. The operating system is Windows 10 (32 bit). Is that correct. Please advice.

    Hi Banhien, the cause is known. I have seen other comments on the HP forum and concluded that the reader needs more power than is available through the USB connector of. I added a hub that can provide power to its connectors USB, HP X 2, by car and the problem has been resolved! It was noted that the mini USB is also more powerful and with the type of adapter USB USB C it might also work, but I did not test this, because I do not have such an adapter. It's odd that such a mini can provide more power. It is surprising that the HP Pavilion X 2 does not have a powerful USB. But the problem is solved. Thanks for your response! Best regards, wiely

  • Satellite L30-134 PSL33E: CD/DVD player can't read data CD

    I bought my laptop (Satellite L30-134 PSL33E) 4 months ago and I had no problem with the optical drive of my Satellite. But yesterday, I discovered that my drive is no longer can read data CDs.

    I created a CD with the Toshiba ToDisc utility which contained MP3s. The CD works fine on another computer but when I try to play them on this computer Windows laptop tells me that the CD is blank and asks me if I want to save data.

    It doesn't have this problem with the DVD, I can read and write perfectly. My optical drive is a CARPET * a DVD-RAM UJ - 841S. Windows says I have the latest driver for it (5.1.2535.0) but it says it's from 2001 (?) in the properties under the selected hardware.

    Help, please!

  • nvstor64 error - failure of HARD drive to read data

    Backup and restore system is unable to complete - after investigation, about an hour after the backup operation to the system event log records a large number of errors in nvstor64 - "failed to read data from the HARD drive" and the abandonment of the backup operation.  After investigation, I found that the nvstor64 replaced the windows driver update disk drivers HARD during a computer video card.  After many contacts with support from nvidia and further consideration, the problem is reduced to the State of the offence alleged in the second hard drive backup (Seagate 1 TB Baraccuda - development since 2/2011).  When you run the HP disk HARD diagnosis on this drive, it does not hard "SMART short self-test" step with the error message "fails first LBA 45511183".

    Here's my question.  Run the chkdsk BACK on this disc utility passes - no bad sectors.   The HARD drive is visible in the operating system and appears to be fully accessible.  I moved 100 GB of files from the disc to others in the network with no apparent problems.  This really works test by the "SMART short self-test?  This is a 'false positive' test failed?

    Hello smithdp,

    The SMART test tests in-depth hard disk. Here's the Wikipedia record for the short trial (they can explain better than me).
    Check electrical and mechanical performance as well as the disk read performance. Electric tests could include a test of memory buffer RAM, a read/write circuits test or a test of the read/write head elements. Mechanical test includes seeking and servo on the data track. Scans small parts of the drive surface (area is provider-specific and there is a time limit on the test). Checks the list of areas that may be read errors in waiting. (Usually less than two minutes.)

    Having said that it is not perfect, because no test is, it could be bad, or it could be on-site. Sometimes the SMART test can give a warning, but the drive will not fail for another month + is just a 'heads up '.

    Now, with your error in particular LBA is logical block address. The error you are getting is that there is a block (45511183) that the test has detected an error on.

  • SCXI-1600 drivers

    Just discovered that 64-bit to the scxi 1600 drivers do not exist.  Place a service call to see if they are working on it.   Is there a third-party driver that I can buy?  It's really ridiculous.  Must use a 32-bit computer to make it work.  Really disappointed.

    What I understand, the device is unique and the design is old and not recommended for new designs. You can also request support on the exchange of ideas, but I would not hold much hope, unfortunately.

  • SCXI-1600 is not communicating with MAX


    Maybe that someone else has come across this.  I have connected an SCXI-1600 module in an SCXI-1000 chassis to a computer with a USB cable.  I can not get NOR-MAX to recognize the device.  I ' v tried to restart and reconnect in different orders.  I traded with a well-known USB cable.  I even took it on another computer.  On the new computer, when I plugged it first of all, I have a message "new hardware found" Windows (XP) that the-1600 had been identified, but I still couldn't it appears in the tree, even if I tried to add devices manually.  I removed the other modules in the chassis and reconnect the - 1600, still no luck.  Any advice would be great!  Thank you.

    Reinstall the suite OR-DAQ solved the problem.  Didn't try it before posting because I had the same problem on several computers and so I thought of something else.  Please do not take into account post.  Thank you.

  • CAN read data using NI-XNET

    I was playing around with the new NI XNET drivers read CAN data and I need some experts advise on this topic. In the frame API, I remember to be able to check that if there is data on the queue of read before reading, with Xnet, I have not found this option. XNET use playback function that will read the entire queue without worrying if the data is present.

    This causes me a problem, because I'm constantly calling loop playback function, the data are written to a table of images, then the table will be empty for the next iteration because the reading queue was empty during the second reading.

    How can I continually read data from the queue of reading without accidental my output table?

    I tried the survey/Deque method, but it works well for me. Is someone can you please tell me what is the best practice for continuously reading the CAN data and treatment using drivers XNET?

    Thank you


    Looks like you want to use with your berries shift registers. Discover this Subvi, which is part of the expedition OR XNET examples. You can find examples from the Finder example under help > find examples.

    Apart from converting it the image into a string, the additions loop the string to an array and use the shift registers to pass the array in the iterations of the loop.

  • Reading data external pc

    Hi guys, I'm kinda new to the instruments OR, and I need to understand how to read data from a PXI-1042 q, which has a PXI-8187 embedded controller and an array of the PXI-4472. I need to read the data to an external computer via one of the serial ports on PXI-8187, using a python House program. I found something on how to send and retrieve data from a serial port using pyVisa, I still don't know how to communicate with the PXI-8187 and select the appropriate entry in the PXI-4472. I need to create a custom PXI-8187 VI do listen to the entries via serial and send output to the same port? Any suggestion will be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    do I still need create a VI for the PXI-8187 with my computer via the LAN interface?

    Yes.  The controller is another computer.  Treat it as one.  This computer must interface with the PXI instruments.  Your computer you write Python scripts for has no interaction except through any interface that you create, both in series or LAN (I recommend using both the LAN).

  • Simulation read data file (*.) (DAT) by using the worksheet (file reading eror - zeros)

    Dear OR community,

    IM pretty new in LabVIEW, so I have a few broblems with reading the data.

    I take a screenshot and mark a problem like part - A and part b below:

    The description of the goal:

    I do a mathematical simulation, using the old software whitch exporting results as shown in 1... DAT file, as it shown in the picture (Notepad).

    First of all I need not read these data then I need to draw the graph XY.

    Description of the problem:

    I created a LabVIEW program and im using a funciont reading of spreadsheet per section B - but when im trying to read data im getting all zeros...

    so I can't identify my problem... What is the problem?

    I try different file to read its Case_test_working.txt and everything is good with this data but when im trying to read *. DAT file zeros is array...

    I tried to use seperator different symbols, also try to imort data to exel then export to *.scv, *.txt formats, but the performance was the same as that indicated in part-A.

    Whenever I get zeros, but not a results as in *. DAT or another file format exported with the same data.

    Please be respectifull and understand that im still newbie in labview but I think its excellent software of filtering of the analysis of data and calculations, so I want to master this software for my future use.

  • Can read data from xls using teststand 3.5?


    I use 3.5 TestStand and LabVIEW know these are quite old versions now, but we must continue with this on a test bench.

    My question is how can I read data from the file xls using TestStand 3.5? I have already mentioned a few posts on this, and one response suggested that I should use "tGetExcel" using ActiveX adapter. I tried to run the test example related to "", but a run-time error. He says that "the tGetExcel type library information not found. Make sure that the server is registered in the system.

    TestStand 4.2, I could easily run excel at the base of operations by using the Office Excel Toolkit.

    I was wondering, is there another way, I can read just .xls file data by using Teststand 3.5?

    Thank you


    Please check this example for charger of property:

    C:\Program Files (x 86) \National Instruments\TestStand 3.5\Examples\LoadingLimits

    This shows the limits of excel file loading.

    But you can load the values of the variables-consult the help file / Reference manual for this type of step.

    Also in the loader type forum search property - you can find more information.
