I can't reset my PXI-6713. My os is Windows 2000 , LV 6.1 , Nidaq 6.8.0 . I have another card in the pxi chassis , a 6704 wich I can reset. Im using the Reset vi located in Daq AO . I know I have the right dev number as I can set the analog outputs to any level I choose.
Reset on the PXI6713. I found out the 6713 analog outputs won't respond to the Device Reset.VI because of the way the hardware is designed. I don't get an error code except 0 (ok )on the status output. I know the reset failed because I set the outputs to a voltage and they did not go to Zero. I also have a simulator analog card PXI6704 which would respond to the Reset. Now I just send zero volts to the outputs and that solves the problem. I think doing a low level the STC Joint_reset_register (72) I could reset the 6713 thanks for all. P.S I tried this with the CVI Init_ , it did not work either. John
Actually, this is expected behavior. If you want your analog output channel to return to zero at the end of your operation, you do have to write a zero explicitly. You will notice in some of the LabVIEW examples they add a call to AO Update Channel to do this. Here is a link to a KB that backs this up. It also gives some insight on why your 6704 operation might behave differently from the expected behavior.
