Hardware for Digital Trigger


I´m planning to acquire data of a acceleration sensor with a NI9234 Module. I´m using DIAdem as a measurement software. 

I would like to trigger the whole measurement with a signal impulse out of our machine tool. When the milling is starting, one signal is set from 0 to 1. 

My plan is to measure this signal and start the acquisition of the acceleration when the machine signal is changed.


But there is one problem left: which module do I need to measure the trigger signal which comes out of the machine?


Thanks in advance!

Can you tell us more about your setup (what chassis are you using, are there other modules, etc.)?  For example if you are using a CompactDAQ chassis, you can connect your signal to the PFI lines and use them as trigger source. Also some other modules have PFI lines that can be used.
