Synchronizing cDAQ Chassis and FieldDAQ Devices

Last Modified: May 2, 2019

If you have multiple devices that support the IEEE 802.1AS standard, you can use Start Trigger synchronization to trigger at a specific time. These devices must either be connected through a daisy chain or a switch that supports IEEE 802.1AS.


If the devices are connected to the network through a real-time host, you must discover these devices in MAX through the real-time host. Refer to the MAX Help for NI-DAQmx for more information on how to discover devices remotely.

For a detailed tutorial on synchronizing FieldDAQ devices, refer to Synchronizing Analog Input FieldDAQ Devices with NI-DAQmx in LabVIEW on
