InstrumentStudio creates a single multi-channel session for all devices in a single SMU
device by default in version 2020 and later.
Considerations when configuring
sessions with SMU devices
Using independent channels allows you to
configure multiple channels of the same instrument, or multiple instruments, within
the same session independently of one another. InstrumentStudio exports a single
session configuration for all channels by default. In certain cases, you must change
your session type to Single channel (compatibility) mode.
To manually select the session
type you want to use, open the instrument header menu (
) of the device in your panel,
and click Session Type.
You should select
- Exporting a session to platforms which do not support NI-DCPower independent
channel sessions. These include Python, LabWindows/CVI, LabVIEW NXG, and Linux
- Exporting a session to NI-DCPower version 20.5 and earlier.
- Exporting the session to end-user code which uses deprecated NI-DCPower
Initialize Functions in C/LabVIEW or deprecated constructors in .NET.
Exports from sessions
created in InstrumentStudio with independent channels cannot be imported
into sessions created with single channels. To verify your session channel
configuration, go to the instrument header menu and
click Session Type.
