cDAQ-9181 + NI 9206: How to set nominal range in LV

Solved!
Go to solution
Highlighted

Hello,

 

The specs of the NI 9206 Voltage AI module indicates that 4 (±200 mV, ±1 V, ±5 V, and ±10 V) programmable input ranges are available.

 

The question is, how do I programmatically select one of those ranges from within LabVIEW. I can't find a DAQmx VI or property node to do that.

 

I am looking for something similar to this, but with a cDAQ and PC.

 

Thank you!

The DAQmx Create Channel is used. You set the min and max and the driver will automatically pick the actual range

Hi Dennis, thank you for your answer.

 

I actually asked that question because of what I read in the NI-DAQmx Help: Input Limits (Maximum and Minimum Values).

 

That's why I thought input limits and device range weren't linked to each other.
