What is SimDev1 used for?



I have came across the SimDev1 device name but never understood what the point of it is. I am currently waiting for my IO card to arrive, so I want to know if I somehow can use SimDev1 device to simulate the behavior of the inputs of my IO card? Thanks in advance.

Hi sallo_93,


SimDev1 is a simulate device used to show an example of how a device may appear in MAX which can then be used in LabVIEW. 


You can therefore create a multitude of simulated devices that you can use simulate I/O cards.


The following shows you how to create simulated devices:


The document then outlines how to use the simulated device


Kind Regards,
