Initialize External Calibration (G Dataflow)

Last Modified: September 26, 2018

Creates and initializes a special NI-FGEN external calibration session.

Flags are set that allow you to program an external calibration procedure using calibration-specific properties and nodes. However, the session can also be used to configure the waveform generator using normal properties and nodes not specific to calibration.

resource name

The instrument name. For example, "PXI1Slot3," where "PXI1Slot3" is an instrument name assigned by Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX).

You can wire in the name of an IVI logical name or an IVI virtual name configured with the IVI Configuration utility. A logical name identifies a particular virtual instrument. A virtual name identifies a specific instrument and specifies the initial settings for the session.

All IVI names, such as logical names, are case-sensitive. If you use logical names, driver session names, or virtual names in your program, you must ensure that the name you use matches the name in the IVI Configuration Store file exactly, without any variations in the case of the characters.

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

password

Calibration password required to open an external calibration session to the waveform generator.

session out

Reference to your instrument session to wire to the next node.

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

Hardware Support:

This node does not support the PXI-5404, which uses different calibration nodes. Refer to the calibration procedure for the PXI-5404 for more information.
