    To read the current from SLSC channels using the TestStand ECU Software Toolkit, complete the following steps.
    1. Open or create a sequence file in TestStand.
    2. Insert an SLSC FIU – Read Current step from IO Configuration»Instrument Control »SLSC 12251/2 in the Insertion Palette pane.
    3. Configure the step in the Step Settings pane by selecting the Switch Executive Virtual Device associated with your SLSC module.
