I need to read a strain gage, a counter and a byte of DIO from a Compact DAQ . I can do all seperatly but not very fast. I can stream multiple channels of the same type but not different types. Is there any way to to read multiple channels of different types (modules) at the same time, at 1000hz?

What CompactDAQ chassis and modules are you using? The sampling rate will depend on what hardware you have. Just to clarify, are you wanting to take these measurements at exactly the same time (simultaneous acquisition) or would multiplexed acquisition suffice?

You can actually use the same sample clock for two tasks. Go ahead and check out this link:
Especially look at number 3, sample clock synchronization.

I confirmed that with your setup, you should be able to access the external clock on the cDAQ chassis. You can specify the particular timebase coming from your cDAQ chassis, as long as you have the correct syntax.
