    Configures the common properties of the DMM. These properties include the measurement function, maximum range, and resolution.

    error out

    Error information.

    The node produces this output 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.

    error in

    Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

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

    Default: No error

    instrument handle out

    The instrument handle that you obtain from the IviDmm Initialize Node. The handle identifies a particular instrument session.

    Default: None

    Default: None

    range

    Value you pass to specify the measurement range you want to use. The driver sets the IviDmm>Basic Operation>Range property to this value. Use positive values to represent the absolute value of the maximum expected measurement. The value must be in units appropriate for the Measurement Function. For example, when you set the Measurement Function to IVIDMM_VAL_DC_VOLTS, you must specify the Range in volts. Setting this parameter to 10.0 configures the DMM to measure DC voltages from -10.0 to +10.0 volts. The driver reserves special negative values for controlling the DMM's auto-ranging capability.

    Defined Values:
    IVIDMM_VAL_AUTO_RANGE_ON (-1.0) Auto-range On
    IVIDMM_VAL_AUTO_RANGE_OFF (-2.0) Auto-range Off
    spd-note-note
    Note  

    Setting this to parameter IVIDMM_VAL_AUTO_RANGE_OFF configures the DMM to stop auto-ranging and keep the range fixed at the current maximum range.

    IVIDMM_VAL_AUTO_RANGE_ONCE (-3.0) Auto-range Once
    spd-note-note
    Note  

    Setting this parameter to IVIDMM_VAL_AUTO_RANGE_ONCE configures the DMM to auto-range once, turn auto-range off, and then remain at the current maximum range.

    Default: IVIDMM_VAL_AUTO_RANGE_ON (-1.0)

    measurement function

    Pass the measurement node you want the DMM to perform. The driver sets the IviDmm>Basic Operation>Function property to this value. Valid Values:

    IVIDMM_VAL_DC_VOLTS DC Volts
    IVIDMM_VAL_AC_VOLTS AC Volts
    IVIDMM_VAL_DC_CURRENT DC Current
    IVIDMM_VAL_AC_CURRENT AC Current
    IVIDMM_VAL_2_WIRE_RES 2-Wire Resistance
    IVIDMM_VAL_4_WIRE_RES 4-Wire Resistance
    IVIDMM_VAL_AC_PLUS_DC_VOLTS AC plus DC Volts
    AIVIDMM_VAL_AC_PLUS_DC_CURRENT AC plus DC Current
    IVIDMM_VAL_FREQ Frequency
    IVIDMM_VAL_PERIOD Period
    IVIDMM_VAL_TEMPERATURE Temperature (C)

    Default: IVIDMM_VAL_DC_VOLTS

    absolute resolution (0.001)

    Pass your desired measurement resolution in absolute units. The driver sets the IviDmm>Basic Operation>Resolution property to this value. The value must be in units appropriate for the Measurement Function. Setting this parameter to lower values increases the measurement accuracy. Setting this parameter to higher values increases the measurement speed. Default Value: 0.001 Notes: (1) This parameter is ignored if the 'Range' parameter is set to IVIDMM_VAL_AUTO_RANGE_ON.

    Where This Node Can Run:

    Desktop OS: Windows

    FPGA: Not supported

    Web Server: Not supported in VIs that run in a web application
