Go to solution

Hello Expert users,

 

 

My purpose is to used NI DAQ to convert analog signal to digital for a displacement sensor by raspberry pi running uldaq (https://github.com/mccdaq/uldaq).

it works prefect for my usb-201, however not work for my new purchased usb-6008 with error prompt "No DAQ device is detected" as attached.

 

I have checked the usb-6008 is working under windows envirnment using NI utilities.

 

Would you please share your experience if I misssed something to config the new model to make it work under linux envirnement instead of windows ?

 

Thanks,

Calvin

yeah, ulDAQ is for mccdaq devices and DAQmx is for NI-DAQ devices.

 

USB-6008 is made by NI

USB-201 is made by MCC

 

You need to use appropriate drivers for each.

Yeah, you can install NI DAQmx drivers to use USB-6008.

 

You can install NI DAQmx drivers for linux but based on my quick search, it looks like the drivers don't support ARM and may not work on rpi.
