Counter n Sample Clock Signal

    Last Modified: February 26, 2018

    Use the Counter n Sample Clock (CtrnSampleClock) signal to perform sample clocked acquisitions and generations.

    You can specify an internal or external source for Counter n Sample Clock. You also can specify whether the measurement sample begins on the rising edge or falling edge of Counter n Sample Clock.

    If the cRIO controller receives a Counter n Sample Clock when the FIFO is full, it reports an overflow error to the host software.

    Using an Internal Source

    To use Counter n Sample Clock with an internal source, specify the signal source and the polarity of the signal. The source can be any of the following signals:
    • DI Sample Clock

    • DO Sample Clock

    • AI Sample Clock

    • AI Convert Clock

    • AO Sample Clock

    • DI Change Detection output

    Several other internal signals can be routed to Counter n Sample Clock through internal routes. Refer to Device Routing in MAX in the NI-DAQmx Help or the LabVIEW Help for more information.

    Using an External Source

    You can route any of the following signals as Counter n Sample Clock:
    • Any PFI terminal

    • Analog Comparison Event

    You can sample data on the rising or falling edge of Counter n Sample Clock.

    Routing Counter n Sample Clock to an Output Terminal

    You can route Counter n Sample Clock out to any PFI terminal. The PFI circuitry inverts the polarity of Counter n Sample Clock before driving the PFI terminal.
