Export Signal (G Dataflow)

Version:
    Last Modified: December 19, 2017

    Routes signals (triggers, clocks, and events) to a specified output terminal.

    The NI-RFSG device must be in the Configuration state before you call this node.

    datatype_icon

    session in

    Instrument session obtained from Initialize With Options .

    datatype_icon

    error in

    Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

    The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

    Standard Error Behavior

    Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

    error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
    If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

    If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

    If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

    Default: No error

    datatype_icon

    signal

    Type of signal to route.

    Name Description
    Start Trigger Exports a Start Trigger.
    Script Trigger Exports a Script Trigger.
    Marker Event Exports a Marker Event.
    Ref Clock Routes the onboard 10 MHz synchronization clock (PXI chassis only).
    Started Event Exports a Started Event.
    Done Event Exports a Done Event.
    Configuration List Step Trigger Exports a Configuration List Step Trigger.
    Configuration Settled Event Exports a Configuration Settled Event.
    datatype_icon

    signal identifier

    Script Trigger or Marker Event to configure. This input is useful when you set the signal input to Script Trigger or Marker Event. Otherwise, set this input to None.

    Name Description
    scriptTrigger0 Specifies Script Trigger 0.
    scriptTrigger1 Specifies Script Trigger 1.
    scriptTrigger2 Specifies Script Trigger 2.
    scriptTrigger3 Specifies Script Trigger 3.
    marker0 Specifies Marker 0.
    marker1 Specifies Marker 1.
    marker2 Specifies Marker 2.
    marker3 Specifies Marker 3.
    None Does not export a signal.
    datatype_icon

    output terminal

    Terminal where the signal is exported. You can choose not to export any signal.

    Name Description
    Do not export signal Does not export a signal.
    RefOut Exports a signal to the REF OUT terminal.
    RefOut2 Exports a signal to the REF OUT2 terminal.
    ClkOut Exports a signal to the CLKOUT terminal.
    PFI0 Exports a signal to the PFI 0 terminal.
    PFI1 Exports a signal to the PFI 1 terminal.
    PFI4 Exports a signal to the PFI 4 terminal.
    PFI5 Exports a signal to the PFI 5 terminal.
    PXI_TRIG0 Exports a signal to the PXI trigger line 0 terminal.
    PXI_TRIG1 Exports a signal to the PXI trigger line 1 terminal.
    PXI_TRIG2 Exports a signal to the PXI trigger line 2 terminal.
    PXI_TRIG3 Exports a signal to the PXI trigger line 3 terminal.
    PXI_TRIG4 Exports a signal to the PXI trigger line 4 terminal.
    PXI_TRIG5 Exports a signal to the PXI trigger line 5 terminal.
    PXI_TRIG6 Exports a signal to the PXI trigger line 6 terminal.
    PXI_Star Exports a signal to the PXI star trigger line terminal.
    PXIe_DStarC Exports a signal to the PXIe DStar C trigger line terminal.

    This value is supported on only the PXIe-5820/5840.

    TrigOut Exports a signal to the TRIG IN/OUT terminal.

    Signal Exporting Behavior

    If you export a signal with this node and commit the session with Commit , the signal is routed to the output terminal you specify. If you then reconfigure the signal to have a different output terminal, the previous output terminal is tristated when the session is next committed. If you change the output terminal to Do Not Export and commit the session, the previous output terminal is tristated.

    Any signals exported within a session persist after the session closes to prevent signal glitches between sessions. If you want to tristate the exported output terminal that the signal was exported to when the session closes, first change the value of the output terminal for the exported signal to Do Not Export, and then commit the session again before closing it.

    You can also tristate all PFI lines by setting the reset device input within Initialize With Options .

    datatype_icon

    session out

    Reference to your instrument session passed to the next node.

    datatype_icon

    error out

    Error information.

    The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.
