Overview
This example demonstrates how to continuously acquire velocity measurements using the NI 9361.

Description:
With the NI 9361, this simple project would be used to measure the angular velocity from an encoder
Note - The example isn't suitable for two pulse encoders, X2, or X4 encoding

Steps to implement or execute code
To implement this example:

  1. Set the Channel Setting to be used
  2. Define the Timing Settings
  3. Run the VI
  4. (Optional) Turn on the Highlight Execution to see the flow of the VI

To execute this example:

  1. Install the required software.
  2. Connect the DAQ hardware that supports the Counter Input (NI 9361) features
  3. Confirm the connection with the MAX with TestPanel
  4. Open the VI and refer the Implement Steps


Requirements
Software
LabVIEW 2012 or compatible
NI-DAQmx 9.0 or compatible

Hardware
cDAQ with C series Counter Input Module (NI 9361)
