I'm using the 2012 Developer suite and I'm trying to set up a vibration anlaysis system using the 1042Q chassis with the PXI4472B 8 channel module. I'm using adell laptop (E6510) with the NI 8360 express card.
The power & link Leds are green. I'm using the MAX explorer.I have I identificed the chassis as a PXI (external PC) which has now shown up under the devices and interfaces. If I click on the chassis, I see slots 2 through 8 with 'Unknown/empty' for the model name. My question is how do I tell the sytem that I'm using the PXI4472B module? (see attached image)
Please right-click on PXI-1042Q "Chassis 1" and select Configure... From here you can select which modules are in your chassis. Hope this helps.
thanks, Ifound theproblem,I thought the laptop had the latest BIOS but it did not, I updated the BIOS now and it works fine
