Programmatically Configuring the NI 9469 in LabVIEW

Publish Date: Jul 22, 2015 | 0 Ratings | 0.00 out of 5 | Print


This tutorial explains how to use LabVIEW to programmatically configure the NI 9469 Chassis Synchronization Module the same the way you would do it in Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX).

With NI-DAQmx 9.6 or later, the cDAQ Sync API allows users to programmatically configure their multi-chassis setup.

The cDAQ Sync palette can be found in LabVIEW by navigating to:
Measurement I/O»NI-DAQmx»Advanced»System Setup»DAQmx cDAQ Sync

The Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX) options are shown below to their corresponding cDAQ Sync VI's:


Figure 1: DAQmx Auto-Configure cDAQ Sync Connections VI

Figure 2: DAQmx Are Configured cDAQ Sync Ports Disconnected VI

Figure 3: DAQmx Add cDAQ Sync Connection VI

Figure 4: DAQmx Remove cDAQ Connection VI

There is also an example attached demonstrating the usage of these VI's.

Note: The use of these VIs is not intended to change the status of the connections in Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX).

Check out the tutorial Configuring NI 9469 in Measurement & Automation Explorer to learn more about configuring your NI 9469.
