E-series counter

Hi, evry!

 

The task is to measure time interval (around 10 ms) between rising edges of two different digital lines.

 

How can this be done using 6052E card?

 

Thanks in advance!

Re: E-series counter

OK, let's put it another way.

 

As E-series documentation declares, there are two triggering actions associated with each counter: Start trigger and Pause trigger.

 

How to connect these two triggers with two PFI lines (if it is possible with E-series DAQ card)?

 

Thanks.

Re: E-series counter

Hi JungleBoy,

 

Please take a look at this example from the Example Finder: Meas Two Edge Separation. You can use the Gate and Source of a single counter to measure the time between a rising (or falling) edge of a signal with respect to the falling (or rising) edge of another one. This example can be found in Help » Find Examples » Hardware Input and Output » DAQmx » Counter measurements » Two-Signal Edge-Separation.

Ah, it turned out to be easier than can even be thought!
