DAQmx Trigger (Reference » Analog Window) (G Dataflow)

Last Modified: September 18, 2017

Configures the task to stop the acquisition when the device acquires all pretrigger samples; an analog signal enters or leaves a range you specify; and the device acquires all post-trigger samples.

task in

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

datatype_icon

source

source is the name of a virtual channel or terminal where there is an analog signal to use as the source of the trigger.

For E Series devices, if you use a virtual channel, it must be the only channel in the task. The only terminal you can use for E Series devices is PFI0.

datatype_icon

window top

window top is the upper limit of the window. Specify this value in the units of the measurement or generation.

datatype_icon

window bottom

window bottom is the lower limit of the window. Specify this value in the units of the measurement or generation.

datatype_icon

error in

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

datatype_icon

when

when specifies whether the Reference Trigger occurs when the signal enters the window or when it leaves the window. Use window bottom and window top to specify the limits of the window.

Name Description
Entering Window

Trigger when the signal enters the window.

Leaving Window

Trigger when the signal leaves the window.

datatype_icon

pretrigger samples per channel

pretrigger samples per channel specifies the minimum number of samples to acquire per channel before recognizing the Reference Trigger. The number of post-trigger samples per channel is equal to number of samples per channel in the DAQmx Timing node minus pretrigger samples per channel.

datatype_icon

task out

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

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.

Where This Node Can Run:

Desktop OS: Windows

FPGA: LabVIEW NXG does not support FPGA devices

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