I am trying to generate a voltage from a PCI-6703 board. I am using Visual Basic and in examples there is a method AOChannels.VreateVoltageChannel(physicalChannel, ...)
I am wondering what the string physicalChannel should contain. In the example it contains "dev1/ao0" where dev1 is the device and ao0 is channel (Analog Out Channel 0). however dev1 on my computer corresponds to my PCI-6509 board not my PCI-6703 board... And it's only the 6509 that has a real "name" in Measurement & Automation. It can be renamed and such, but the 6703 board cannot, it just says Device 1. What should i write in the string to be able to, for example, generate voltage on channel 0 on my 6703 board?
The device string NI-DAQmx uses for the device is in MAX under the NI-DAQmx Devices folder, next to the device, in quotes. In the system below, the name of the PCI-6713 is: Dev3. So the channel string for analog output channel 0 of the 6713 in this system would be "Dev3/ao0".
Thanks Alan, but the problem is that the device does not show up under
the "NI-DAQmx Devices", only under "Traditional DAQ Devices" and does not
have a name... But according to support that problem will be fixed when
I upgrade to version 8.0 of NI-DAQmx, so in around 500 Mb of download I
will know if it works... 🙂
