    Last Modified: February 26, 2018

    The Counter n Gate signal can perform many different operations depending on the application including starting and stopping the counter, and saving the counter contents.

    Routing a Signal to Counter n Gate

    Each counter has independent input selectors for the Counter n Gate signal. Any of the following signals can be routed to the Counter n Gate input:
    • Any PFI terminal

    • AI Reference Trigger

    • AI Start Trigger

    • AO Sample Clock

    • DI Sample Clock

    • DI Reference Trigger

    • DO Sample Clock

    • Change Detection Event

    • Analog Comparison Event

    In addition, a counter’s Internal Output or Source can be routed to a different counter’s gate.

    Some of these options may not be available in some driver software. Refer to the Device Routing in MAX topic in the NI-DAQmx Help or the LabVIEW Help for more information about available routing options.
