DAQmx Create Scale (Linear) (G Dataflow)

Version:
    Last Modified: February 6, 2017

    Creates a custom scale that uses the equation y=mx+b, where x is a pre-scaled value, and y is a scaled value. The equation is identical for input and output. If the equation is in the form x=my+b, you must first solve for y in terms of x.

    name

    name identifies the custom scale for later use, such as with the DAQmx Create Virtual Channel node.

    datatype_icon

    slope

    slope is the slope, m, in the equation.

    datatype_icon

    y-intercept

    y-intercept is the y-intercept, b, in the equation.

    datatype_icon

    error in

    error in describes error conditions that occur before this node runs. This input provides standard 'error in' functionality.

    pre-scaled units

    pre-scaled units is the units of the values to scale.

    scaled units

    scaled units is the units to use for the scaled value. You can use an arbitrary string. LabVIEW uses the units to label a graph or chart.

    datatype_icon

    scale out

    scale out is a reference to the custom scale this node creates.

    datatype_icon

    error out

    error out contains error information. If error in indicates that an error occurred before this node ran, error out contains the same error information. Otherwise, error out describes the error status that this node produces.
