Code and Documents



This VI uses the DAQmx TEDS VIs and the TEDS Library for LabVIEW to retrieve information from a smart TEDS sensor and from a virtual TEDS file. TEDS information from either or both sources can be displayed in a LabVIEW table and the user can select the physical channel and/or the name of the virtual TEDS file.

The Virtual TEDS file needs to be located in the same directory as the example program in order to operate correctly.

Software Required: LabVIEW 7.1, NI-DAQmx 7.2, TEDS Library for LabVIEW
