Configure Time Slot (G Dataflow)

Version:
    Last Modified: December 18, 2017

    Configures the time slot mode inputs and outputs.

    This node is applicable only if you set the mode to Time Slot Mode in Configure Acquisition Mode.

    connector_pane_image
    datatype_icon

    session in

    Instrument session obtained from Initialize With Options.

    datatype_icon

    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

    datatype_icon

    channel name

    Name of the channel you want to configure.

    Valid Channel Names:
    • 0
    • empty string ""

    Default: 0

    datatype_icon

    slot width

    Width of each time slot, in seconds.

    Valid Range: 1.0 x 10-5 to 0.100

    spd-note-note
    Note  

    USB-5681: The product of slot count and slot width cannot be greater than 300 ms.

    USB-5683/5684: The product of slot count and slot width cannot be greater than 1000 ms.

    Default: 0.008

    datatype_icon

    slot count

    Number of time slots to acquire at a time.

    Valid Range: 2 to 128

    Default: 8

    datatype_icon

    session out

    Reference to your instrument session passed to the next node.

    datatype_icon

    error out

    Error information.

    The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.
