1. Connect to Hardware

  • Connecting Your DAQ Hardware Using LabVIEW
    Learn how to connect, test, and validate an NI USB data acquisition device with LabVIEW.

Before You Begin

Before using NI LabVIEW software to take measurements with an NI DAQ device, you need to set up and configure the device. This module explains how to install the proper driver and connect, configure, and test your device using NI Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX) software. It also describes the setup process with the NI myDAQ measurement and control tool, but the same process applies to other USB multifunction DAQ devices such as the NI Educational Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Suite (NI ELVIS) II or NI USB-6009. Prior to starting this module, review the Learn LabVIEW modules to understand the fundamentals of graphical programming.
