Logging a Data Set

Last Modified: November 26, 2019

This example illustrates how to use the Data Generator (Data Gen) to generate a data set and use the Data Logger to log the data.

  1. Install the NI ELVIS III prototyping board onto the NI ELVIS III workstation.
  2. Connect a jumper wire between Bank A, Channel AI0 (A/AI0) and A/AO0, and between A/AI1 and A/AO1. Refer to Connecting Signals to Analog Input for more details about connecting to the analog input.
  3. Press the application board power button on the workstation to power on the application board.

    To ensure safety, you must connect the wires before powering on the application board.

  4. Launch the Data Gen Soft Front Panel (SFP).
  5. Configure the Data Gen to generate data on A/AO0 and A/AO1.
  6. Click Run to start generating data.
  7. Launch the Data Logger SFP.
  8. Configure the Data Logger to log the input signal on A/AI0 and A/AI1.
  9. Click Run to start logging the input signal. A waveform appears in the display window.
  10. Adjust the display and trigger settings as needed.

    You must stop the instrument before adjusting the trigger settings.

    The Data Logger automatically saves a data file to your local computer when the logging stops.
