Manually Scaling Data to DAQmx acquired data


This example showshow to manually apply a scale to DAQmx acquired data



DAQmx has a really easy way of applying a custom scales to your channels.  But there may be a time where you want to read and record the raw voltges along with the scaled voltages.  In this case you would need to manually apply the scales in LabVIEW.


The attached code is an expansion of the continuos acquisition DAQmx example.  The part that is added is the auto-indexing For-loop.  The constants wired to the loop will be used in the formula node to set the slope and intercept of the linear scale being applied in the Formula Node.

LabVIEW 2012 (or Compatible)


Steps to Implement or Execute Code

  1. modify acquisition parameters
  2. run VI
