Initialize External Calibration (G Dataflow)

Last Modified: January 23, 2018

Creates a new IVI instrument driver session to the specified power supply or SMU, returns an instrument handle used to identify the device in all subsequent NI-DCPower node calls, and sends initialization commands to set the device to the state necessary for the operation of NI-DCPower.

resource name

Resource name of the device to initialize. IVI logical names can be valid resource names.

Assigning Resource Name

Assign the resource name in Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX).

Resource Name Example

PXI1Slot3, where PXI1Slot3 is an instrument resource name.

datatype_icon

password

Password for opening a calibration session.

Password Considerations

  • The password can be a maximum of four alphanumeric characters.
  • The initial password is factory configured to NI.
  • The password must be valid for the Initialize External Calibration node to execute.

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

session out

Handle used to identify the session in all subsequent NI-DCPower node calls.

error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

Calibration Session Considerations

Opening a calibration session always performs a reset. Refer to the calibration procedure for the device you are calibrating for detailed instructions on the appropriate use of this node.

Where This Node Can Run:

Desktop OS: Windows

FPGA: Not supported

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