Configure Trigger (Configure Digital Edge Start Trigger) (G Dataflow)

Version:
    Last Modified: September 14, 2017

    Configures the Start trigger for digital edge triggering.

    The digital pattern instrument responds to the trigger on a physical PXI chassis backplane trigger line and waits for this trigger after you call the Initiate node or the Burst Pattern node. The pattern does not burst until it receives this trigger.

    datatype_icon

    session in

    Instrument session obtained from the niDigital Initialize with Options node.

    datatype_icon

    source

    Parameter that specifies the trigger line you want to use.

    Name Description
    PXI_Trig0 Specifies PXI trigger line 0.
    PXI_Trig1 Specifies PXI trigger line 1.
    PXI_Trig2 Specifies PXI trigger line 2.
    PXI_Trig3 Specifies PXI trigger line 3.
    PXI_Trig4 Specifies PXI trigger line 4.
    PXI_Trig5 Specifies PXI trigger line 5.
    PXI_Trig6 Specifies PXI trigger line 6.
    PXI_Trig7 Specifies PXI trigger line 7.
    datatype_icon

    edge

    The active edge for the Start trigger.

    Name Description
    Rising edge

    Specifies the signal transition from low level to high level.

    Falling edge

    Specifies the signal transition from high level to low level.

    Default: Rising edge

    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

    session out

    Handle that identifies the session in all subsequent NI-Digital node calls.

    datatype_icon

    error out

    Error information.

    The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

    Where This Node Can Run:

    Desktop OS: Windows

    FPGA: Not supported

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