IviCounter Initiate (G Dataflow)

Version:
    Last Modified: October 24, 2017

    Initiates a measurement based on the preset configuration. You must configure the measurement type and input channel before calling this node. After you call this node, the Counter leaves the Idle state and waits for a trigger. The Counter makes a measurement for each channel you have enabled with the IviCounter_ConfigureChannel Node. You must call the fetch node in order to retrieve the result of the measurement. Notes: This node does not check the instrument status. Typically, you call this node only in a sequence of calls to other low-level driver nodes. The sequence performs one operation. You use the low-level nodes to optimize one or more aspects of interaction with the instrument. If you want to check the instrument status, call the IviCounter_error_query Node at the conclusion of the sequence.

    instrument handle

    The instrument handle that you obtain from IviACPwr Initialize or IviACPwr Initialize With Options. The handle identifies a particular instrument session.

    Default: None

    error in

    Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

    The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

    Standard Error Behavior

    Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

    error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
    If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

    If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

    If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

    Default: No error

    instrument handle out

    The instrument handle that you obtain from IviACPwr Initialize or IviACPwr Initialize With Options.
