Specifies the method to use to measure the period of the signal.

Data type: datatype_icon

Name Value Description
Low Frequency with 1 Counter 10105 Use one counter that uses a constant timebase to measure the input signal.
High Frequency with 2 Counters 10157 Use two counters, one of which counts pulses of the signal to measure during the specified measurement time.
Large Range with 2 Counters 10205 Use one counter to divide the frequency of the input signal to create a lower-frequency signal that the second counter can more easily measure.
Dynamic Averaging 16065 Uses one counter and automatically configures the counter settings based on the range of frequencies to be measured. During the acquisition, the counter dynamically adjusts the number of periods that are averaged to balance measurement accuracy and latency.
