DCAF channels and tags with LabVIEW units (e.g. degC, ml)

Does DCAF support using channels and tags with LabVIEW units (e.g. degC, ml)? If not, is there a workaround other than removing the units on one end and re-applying them on the other?

DCAF does not support numerics with LabVIEW units. You could implement a workaround such as you described and/or you could use string tags to transfer units information.


If you are modifying processing based on units strings, I suggest using base SI units for all tags transferred between modules, and only use LabVIEW units within the scope of a single module.
