Low Level TDMS Data Streaming Across Multiple Files using LabVIEW

This example demonstrates how to save data in multiple TDMS files. 


On occasion, it may be necessary or desirable stream data from an acquisition to multiple smaller files rather than just one.  This short example demonstrates how, using the low level TDMS file functions, data can be written across multiple files.  By utilizing the loop counter, a new file for data streaming is created every 1000th iteration. 


  • LabVIEW Base Development System 2012 (or compatible)

Steps to Implement or Execute Code

  1. Fill in the “File Name” control.
  2. Run the VI. 
  3. TDMS files are created in the application directory.
