DAQmx Read (Single Sample) (G Dataflow)

Version:
    Last Modified: February 6, 2017

    Reads one floating-point sample from one or more counter tasks. Use an instance that reads a floating-point value when NI-DAQmx scales counter samples to a floating-point value.

    task in

    task in is the name of the task that the operation applies.

    timeout

    timeout specifies the amount of time in seconds to wait for samples to become available. If the time elapses, the node returns an error and any samples read before the timeout elapsed. The default timeout is 10 seconds. If you set timeout to -1, the node waits indefinitely.

    If you set timeout to 0, the node tries once to read the requested samples and returns an error if it is unable to.

    error in

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

    task out

    task out is a reference to the task after this node runs.

    data

    data returns a 1D array of samples. Each element of the array corresponds to a channel in the task. The order of the channels in the array corresponds to the order in which you add the channels to the task or to the order of the channels you specify with the Channels to Read property.

    NI-DAQmx scales the data to the units of the measurement, including any custom scaling you apply to the channels. Use the DAQmx Create Virtual Channel node or the DAQ Assistant to specify these units.

    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.
