Using the DAQ USB-6009 meter and an analog input voltage at the same time.


Currently, I'm reading the two channels of voltage with the USB-6009. It happens that one of the channels is the output of a digital coder, and it would be much easier to use it directly to the PFIO entry that is defined as a counter. The problem I am facing right now, it's that I can't use the DAQ Assistant to use the analog voltage to a channel and the digital channel counter at the same time. Once I put the DAQ Assistant to read the input from analogue voltage, I won't be able to add analog inputs. And as I put the DAQ Assistant to use the PFIO as a counter, I can add more entries to read analog voltage is.

I wonder if it is possible to solve this problem using the lower level data blocks? Another solution would be to read two channels in analog input voltage and that the use of Matlab to process data resulting from it, since I was not able to do the counting to work simultaneously with the acquisition in Labview to impulses.

Hope you guys can help out me.

Thanks in advance.

Using a simple wizard of DAQ is incorrect. You need one to acquire analog inputs and one for the meter.

  • Can PCI 6602:How I use digital lines of the Board of Directors and at the same time to generate trains of pulses by using a meter?


    My problem appeared when I tried to update my traditional NOR-DAQ legacy code to DAQmx.

    I use 2 meter (meter 5 and 7 meter) on PCI-6602, to generate trains of pulses, as well as the lines of e/s digital port 0 (the form lines from 0 to 7). What I do in my request, it's that I'm starting to generate the pulse train on the output of 2 meters and after that I play with the State of digital lines.

    Traditional, it was no problem to use the meters and digital lines at the same time, everything went perfectly, but in DAQmx, is not possible.

    What's happening: I start generating train of pulses on the output of counters, no errors, but when I try to change the State of a line of digital port the generation of the pulse train is stopped. What happens when I start the task associated with the digital way.

    My question is: is it possible to create a channel on digital lines without changing the channels created for meters?

    Another thing that I managed to do with the panels 'Measurement and Automation Explorer' and Test for PCI-6602, is basically the same thing, I generate trains of pulses on the output of the 7 meter and try to start a job on the digital line, but I get an error:

    "Error-200022 occurred in test Panel.
    Possible reasons:
    Measurements: Resource requested by this task has already been reserved by another task.
    Device: Dev4
    "Terminal: PFI8.

    On the contrary if I use the counter 0 or a counter 1 to generate trains of pulses I encounter the same problem.

    What resources are used by 2 to 7 of the PCI-6602 card counters and the counters to 0 and 1 do not use?

    Thanks in advance for any answer!


    After doing some real tests on this device, I found that it is a normal behavior for the jury of 6602.  This is because when you start a task digital all 32 lines are configured for digital i/o, so it replaces your meter operation.  The article below the link explains a little more on this subject.  You must start the digital task before the task of counter to use the features of both in your program.

    2 meter and above will not work correctly when you perform digital i/o on NI 6601 or 6602

  • can I use the same USB cable for two printers - HP Officejet 4315 and HP Officejet 6110?

    I have an existing HP Officejet 4315 with USB cable and want to use the same cable replacement for my other printers, the HP Officejet 6110.  This allows me to change the cable between the printer and still work?

    Thank you for your thoughtful replies.

    As you asked specifically about the compatibility of the USB cable, I would say that it will work because both devices support USB 2.0 (that is, both devices can be used with the same USB cable alternating).

    Installation of the software for the two devices must be made successfully to use various functions.

  • Use wireless and USB at the same time on an OfficeJetPro 8500

    I have a HP OfficeJetPro 8500 Wireless I want to use both wireless to other computers by using the USB connection to the office which is in the same room and the House. Is it possible to do both at the same time? The manual suggests that you connect using wireless or connect USB but says nothing about aid from both. Thank you


    Yes, you can do both.

    Install the USB with your desktop computer at the office.

    Install wireless on other wireless devices.  Your other devices should find the OJ Pro 8500 Wireless and connect.  You should be asked the SSID and password on these devices.

    It will depend also on the number of wireless devices can manage your router, so make sure that your router is capable.

    You can acquire and generate the same VI but obviously you can't generate a wave form unless you do a single point at a time inside a loop with a sample on request and can live with low samples/s specifications.

    Hi Tupaj,

    See a voltage floating as this can sometimes be the result of a measure badly grounded.  It would be useful, like Dennis, to know how you have this wired up.  Please take a look at this guide to make sure that the device is properly connected to Earth:

    Field wiring and analog noise -

    In addition, information about the configuration of your software are also important.  Here's an example of how implementing a fundamental mission of analog input for your 6009:

    Video installation instructions -

    The example Finder has also several screws that already do it for you.  If you work in 2012 before LabVIEW, look for Acq Cont & chart voltage-Int of the in the Finder of the example.  LabVIEW 2012 will have a similar named VI voltage - Software-Timed

    Kind regards

  • USB-6009 HAVE and AO


    I have a USB - 6009 DAQmx. I want to measure an analog input with the highest possible sample rate (48 kHz). At the same time, I need an analog output in voltage from 0 to 5 Volts, lets say 2 minutes of the ramp. Both of these tasks require no synchronization of relatives. With respect to the specification, the highest rate of the AO is 150 Hz. It's ok for my application.

    So far I use the internal clock of the device, and the OD does not work with a timing of software. Is it possible of ramping regardless the voltage output and at the same time reading analog input? If not, is there a work around for this device?

    Thanks for the tips!

    Kind regards

    HI Blook,

    your VI test seems ok. Of course, given that the AO is in sync SW and you run it on a Windows platform may be you will see some jitter on the output. But you said, you don t need a thight synchronization, so it shouldn´t be question.

    For what concerns the way in which LV manages data acquired from a multiplexed DAQ card, that should be kept in mind

    that the timestamp of the waveform is generated from the driver on the PC and not directly on the map. This means that even if the sample of both channels are acquired in two different

    moments (like you supposed to separate by the time of the ADC) this will be transparent to the SW and they will be considered granted exactly at the same time.

    National Isntrumetns offers also simultaneous of sampled acquisition card (and not multiplexed) to overcome this problem.

    Best regards


  • Can I use the same profile of TB on my laptop and PC via Onedrive or iCloud? If so, how?

    I know that I can move my TB profile location and create new ones using Profile Manager. I did it using my account Onedrive and TB works very well. It would be very useful to be able to use the same profile Onedrive of two PC, but is it possible and how can I do? Thank you very much.

    It is possible, but prone to failure.

    If I disconnect the first device I connected, the other starts to work,

    Is an odd question, and I can not find someone to live something similar...

    No idea how could it be the cause, or how can I solve it?

    Thank you

    I m wondering if the same problem is displayed using another computer or another USB hub with an additional power supply.

    From my point of view of the few this problem could be related to the low power provided by a single USB port.

    The two hard drives seem to support the USB 3.0 standard.
    The USB 2.0 port common provides 500mA and USB 3.0 requires 900mA
    This means that two USB devices connected simultaneously use 1800mA which could be too much for the USB ports for s laptop

  • Try to use the same pattern for more than two channels (CSR configuration) with usb 6000


    I am currently trying to implement a LabView code to get readings of voltage using 5 different places at the same time. I want to only use the first location in the ground and get 4 measurements of voltage between the ground and each of the other 4 channels. I use a USB 6000 which, for now, allows me to use the same pattern for only two channels. Is it possible to use the same pattern for 4 channels?

    Thank you


    The images do not explain everything. You must explain what are the sensors. I think you totally wrong on how they should be linked. CSR, all sensors must be a common understanding and the outputs not individual channels as I have already explained. If you are unable to do this, you should probably not use CSR and you have the wrong data acquisition device. If you want a side of a sensor as a reference, you need differential connections.

  • iP8720 - wired USB and wifi at the same time?

    I sought an answer to this but have not found one that I really understand.  An iP87290 can be used as a wired printer and printer wifi simultaneously?

    I put up as a USB Wired printer on the office a year ago.  Works very well.  Now my wife wants to know if she can print on it from his laptop.  I have the wifi set up in the House and she often logs from the living room... as I have from my android tablet. What we do when she wants to print something, it is transferred to an SD card, then put the SD card in the office and printing from it.  Aging.  It would be much better if she could just walk into the 'office' and turn the printer on and print directly from his laptop.  I like to keep the printer connected to the desktop also.

    Thank you.

    Hi Muhammed.

    You can connect your PIXMA iP8720 to a computer with a USB cable and also use wireless with other computers and devices at the same time.

  • How is it that a computer which works very well with a direct Ethernet connection won't work with a switch, however any other computer using the same port, cable, ect, and so on, can?

    Switch issues. Help, please.

    How is it that a computer which works very well with a direct Ethernet connection won't work with a switch, however any other computer using the same port, cable, ect, and so on, can? We already checked the firewall as a question, that it was not, and now, we are puzzled.

    Well, I know that the issue is long-term... believe me, it's a long, but as they say, the devil is in the details. Anywho, the question is, my grandfather has a HP laptop, which for two years has been able to run through a Linksys switch to his router and connect its printers to his laptop. About two months ago it suddenly doesn't work like that. Now, it works fine if it plugs directly into the router/Ethernet. My uncle suggested that the switch was bad, but after testing the same port, cable and all, the switch worked well for him. ' GRAMPS really needs this answered, but someone else, it is called can not understand and now I, in turn, ask you all for what you can offer. Here are the ideas that we have already discredited.

    -Switch bad: as above, is that this particular laptop, even under identical conditions, the works of my uncle very well.
    -Bad NIC: debunked through the fact we connected to the computer directly to the router and it worked fine.
    -Bad configuration of the firewall: we have disabled the firewall (please do not notice, he wasn't the smartest idea, we already know) and even if she recorded the switch exists, the internet is always triggered when you are connected with the switch.

    Thanks in advance for any assistance that you can provide and Merry Christmas to you all.

    It would be useful to consult the results of the ipconfig/all command both when it is connected to the switch and when it is connected directly to the router.  In addition, what is the model of the switch?

    To save the manual copy and the new hits of the ipconfig/all command output-

    First connect through switch.
    Open a command prompt window (start > run > cmd > OK)
    Type the following lines in the black command prompt window and press ENTER after each line

    echo "Connected via the button" > "% UserProfile%\Desktop\ipinfo.txt".
    ipconfig/all > "% UserProfile%\Desktop\ipinfo.txt".

    Now connect directly to the router, type the following lines in the command prompt window and press ENTER after each line

    echo "Connected to the router" > "% UserProfile%\Desktop\ipinfo.txt".
    ipconfig/all > "% UserProfile%\Desktop\ipinfo.txt".
    Notepad '% UserProfile%\Desktop\ipinfo.txt '.

    Copy the contents of the Notepad window in your response (if you use the laptop when it is connected directly to the router) or close the Notepad window, and then copy ipinfo.txt of the laptop to the Gramps in a USB FlashDrive you can connect to any computer allows you to answer.

    You can delete ipinfo.txt on the desktop when you are finished.
