Configure Powerline Frequency (G Dataflow)

Version:
    Last Modified: September 16, 2017

    Specifies the powerline frequency.

    NI-DMM sets the Powerline Frequency property to this value. The DMM uses this value to select a timebase for setting the Aperture Time property in powerline cycles (PLCs).

    After configuring powerline frequency, set the Aperture Time Units property to PLCs. When setting the Aperture Time property, select the number of PLCs for the powerline frequency. For example, if powerline frequency = 50 Hz (20ms) and aperture time in PLCs = 5, then aperture time in seconds = 20 ms ×5 PLCs = 100 ms.

    Note  

    When using a resolution of 6.5 digits, 50 Hz and 60 Hz noise will be rejected automatically. This is due to the selection of default aperture times, which appropriately filter out noise.

    datatype_icon

    session in

    Instrument identifier from previous NI-DMM nodes.

    Default: None

    datatype_icon

    powerline frequency

    Powerline frequency to be set.

    spd-note-note
    Note  

    You should set this control to the frequency of the AC power line. For 400 Hz power line, use the 50 Hz setting.

    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.

    Where This Node Can Run:

    Desktop OS: Windows

    FPGA: Not supported

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