DAQmx Encoder with TC output

im using a 6602 counter board for quadrature-encoder for angular counting.
I want to get an hardware output at a specific angular position.
I'm not using Z-index.
I need the output for hardware-triggering of another device 6132.

With conventional DAQ it seems I con set counter output TC by attribute VI.
How can this be done with DAQmx?
Thanks for any help.

I'm not quite sure how you got that working right under traditional NI-DAQ without using the Z-index.  The main trick I knew of required use of the Z-index with unidirectional motion.  Care to share the idea?

Anyway, in DAQmx, you can configure that kind of stuff using the DAQmx property nodes.  Probably a DAQmx Channel property node.  Look down in the parts of the property menu for "General Properties" and "Advanced".  Lotsa neat stuff buried in there...

CAUTION! New LabVIEW adopters -- it's too late for me, but you *can* save yourself. The new subscription policy for LabVIEW puts NI's hand in your wallet for the rest of your working life. Are you sure you're *that* dedicated to LabVIEW? (Summary of my reasons in this post, part of a voluminous thread of mostly complaints starting here).
