Pulse train on 6024E, Labview (PC)

Hi,
I was wondering if it's possible to change
the output frequency (GPCTR0) without the
output going low for a few milliseconds.

I am using the 'pulse config' and 'counter start'
vi when I need to change the frequency. I plan
to use this setup to calibrate speedometers and
tachs. It would be nice if I could stop the needle
from trying to jump to zero every time I have to
change the drive frequency.

Somewhere in the manuals is mentioned that the
parameters of the DAQ-STC can be changed 'seamlessly'.
I tried (in vain) finding this section again.

Any advice would be welcome.

thanks,

Walter

Walter,

I'm not 100% sure if this example will eliminate the dead spot during
counter reconfiguration or not, but I think it might:

("Pulse Width Modulator for LabVIEW" on the NI example programs site)

It should work with your E Series card.

Thanks John,
I hope to try it today. Will let you know how it
goes.
