Export Signal (G Dataflow)

    Routes signals (clocks, triggers, and events) to the output terminal you specify. Refer to your device documentation for valid signal destinations.

    If you export a signal with this node and commit the session, the signal is routed to the output terminal you specify. If you then reconfigure the signal to have a different output terminal, the previous output terminal is tristated after the session is committed. If you change output terminal to Do Not Export when you commit the session, the previous output terminal is tristated.

    session in

    Instrument session obtained from the Initialize Acquisition Session node, the Initialize Generation Session node, or the Initialize External Calibration node.

    datatype_icon

    signal identifier

    The signal being exported.

    You can select Script Trigger 0, Script Trigger 1, Script Trigger 2, Script Trigger 3, Marker 0, Marker 1, Marker 2, Marker 3, or None.

    When using the PXI-6544/6545/6547/6548, Script Trigger 3 and Marker 3 are unavailable.

    datatype_icon

    signal

    The signal you want to export.

    Note  

    Selecting Script Trigger or Marker Event requires a signal identifier to describe the particular signal.

    datatype_icon

    output terminal

    The terminal where the signal is exported.

    Name Value Description
    Do not export signal The signal is not exported.
    PFI 0 The signal is exported to the PFI 0 front panel connector.
    PFI <1..3> The signal is exported to PFI <1..3> on the DDC front panel connector.
    PXI Trigger Line/RTSI <0..7> The signal is exported to PXI trigger line or RTSI trigger line.
    CLK OUT The signal is exported to the front panel CLK OUT connector.
    DDC CLK OUT The signal is exported to the DDC CLK OUT pin on the DDC front panel connector.

    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 node calls.

    The session out parameter is obtained from the Initialize Acquisition Session node or the Initialize Generation Session node.

    error out

    Error information.

    The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

    Unconfiguring signal routes

    Any routes created within a session persist after the session closes to prevent signal glitching. To unconfigure signal routes created in previous sessions, set the reset instrument parameter in the Init Generation Session node or the Init Acquisition Session node to True or use the Reset Device node.

    Where This Node Can Run:

    Desktop OS: Windows

    FPGA: Not supported

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