PFI 0/AI START
PFI 1/REF TRIG
I have never used the 6071 so I am not 100% sure of what its capable of. Maybe if you post an explanation of exactly what you are trying to do either I or someone who has used the 6071 before can give more specific information. Also look in the NI-DAQ and NI-DAQmx help files that should be in the NI-DAQ folder on your computer if you have already installed NI-DAQ.
Unfortunaely I am out of the lab for a few days, and I will not be back in until next week. So I cannot post any code.
But basically I want to start acquiring a finite amount of data from 3 AI channels.
I was thinking of using the Acq&Graph Voltage-Int Clk-Dig Ref.vi from the examples.It uses the PFI ports as a trigger. I have +5V when true, 0V when false signal that I would like to use as the trigger.
This example you mentioned triggers on a rising digital edge from PFI0.
What I am trying to do is to either use and external 5V true signal, 0V false or an internal labview true, in order to start the task.
For example can the task be triggered using one of the digital I/O ports instead of the pfi ports?
This example, can be used.
I have tried using this example with the external hardwired signal appplied to PFI0, and the acquisition does not start.
