Use Analog Input (AI) channels with waveform tasks to control waveform acquisitions by DAQ devices, such as how VeriStand logs waveform data and defines triggers that start and stop acquisitions.As part of setting up an AI channel(s) to acquire waveforms, you need to specify the rate, size, and other properties of the acquisitions you want to perform. You set these properties in a group called a task, and then assign the task back to the AI channel(s). You must assign one task to each DAQ device that performs waveform acquisitions.
|Goals||Task Channel||How to Add|
|Set a task to an active, running state.||Task Enabled||Always available under each task.|
|Specify if logging occurs during acquisitions.||Logging Enabled||
In the Logging Configuration page, click Allow TDMS logging .
|Specify when logging stops and begins with a new file.||Start New File|
|Set a finite task to automatically restart itself and wait for a new trigger when the acquisition is complete.||Retriggerable||
In the Triggers Configuration page, set Acquisition mode to Finite.
|Set a software start trigger to begin an acquisition.||Start Trigger||
In the Triggers Configuration page, set Trigger type to Software.
