Hi,

Connect the encoder to the UMI. Drag the read position VI into the block diagram and put it in a while loop. Give the board ID as shown in max. Provide the axis to which the encoder i connected. Put an indicator to diaply the counts.Now run the VI and rotate the encoder to see the counts.

Re: How to read position from PCI 7342

Please find the examples in LabVIEW folder. The VI that you want is already demonstrated there. I do not have motion driver installed, so can give example, sorry.

Hey bkk,

You can find all the motion examples in the following folder: C:\Program Files\National Instruments\LabVIEW x.x \examples\Motion\FlexMotion. You can find these examples if you have the NI-Motion driver installed. Also, you can find examples in the NI Example Finder if you do a search and Browse by directory structure - in the Motion folder.

Regards,
