Automatically synchronize acquisitions between systems across an Ethernet network.
Synchronization-enabled devices use the IEEE 802.1AS protocol over the network and
cannot synchronize with devices that use other protocols or IEEE 1588 profiles or
Ensure that your system includes at least two devices that support network
synchronization. Refer to the Supported Hardware topic for
Ensure that the synchronization-enabled devices in your system are using a
connection configuration that supports network synchronization. You can use the
following topology configuration options:
Refer to your device documentation, available at ni.com/manuals,
for additional information on synchronization and networking.
Ensure that synchronization is enabled by going to
File»Preferences and checking Enable

When the network synchronization-supported
devices in your system are properly connected and configured, and synchronization is
enabled in FlexLogger, the SYNC displays green in the toolbar, indicating that
synchronization is working properly. If the SYNC display is not appearing or is not
green, refer to the Synchronization Status
topic for troubleshooting information.
