Configure Measurement (Absolute Resolution) (G Dataflow)

Last Modified: September 16, 2017

Configures measurement properties, including absolute resolution.

connector_pane_image
datatype_icon

session in

Instrument identifier from previous NI-DMM nodes.

Default: None

datatype_icon

function

Measurement function used to acquire the measurement. NI-DMM sets the Function property to this value.

datatype_icon

resolution

Absolute resolution of the measurement.

NI-DMM sets the Absolute Resolution property to this value.

Device-Specific Behavior

The PXIe-4080/4081/4082 uses the resolution you specify in this input. The PXI/PCI-4065 and PXI/PCI-4070 and PXI-4071/4072 ignore this input when the range input is set to Auto Range ON (-1.0) or Auto Range ONCE (-3.0).

Default: 0.001 V

datatype_icon

range

Range for the measurement, coerced up to the closest input range.

NI-DMM sets the Range property to this value. Refer to the specifications document for your DMM for a list of valid ranges.

When frequency is specified with the Function input, you must supply the minimum frequency expected with this input. For example, you must type in 100 Hz if you are measuring 101 Hz or higher.

Setting Auto Range

You can configure your DMM for Auto Range using this parameter with the following values:
spd-note-note
Note  

The PXI/PCI/PCIe-4065 only support Auto Range when the trigger and sample trigger are set to Immediate.

Value Configuration Description
-1.0 Auto Range on NI-DMM performs an Auto Range before acquiring the measurement.
-2.0 Auto Range off NI-DMM sets the Range to the current Auto Range Value and uses this range for all subsequent measurements until the measurement configuration is changed.
-3.0 Auto Range once NI-DMM performs an Auto Range before acquiring the next measurement. The Auto Range Value is stored and used for all subsequent measurements until the measurement configuration is changed.

Default: 0.02 V

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

Instrument identifier for subsequent NI-DMM nodes.

datatype_icon

error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

Desktop OS: Windows

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