Module names per cDAQ chassis?

Go to solution

Hi all,

is there a way to get module names cDAQ-chassis based?


I'm trying to check if two (or more) identical chassis with different modules are connected to my PC.



Module 1: cDAQ-9174 with Modules "A", "B", "C", emptySlot, in just that order

Module 2: cDAQ-9174 with Modules "D", "E", "emptySlot", "emptySlot"


The "ActiveDev" property node then delivers the ProductType output array of [cDAQ-9174, cDAQ-9174, A, B, C, D, E, ...further devices on the system]


I can't see which of the modules is plugged into which chassis.


Any help is appreciated!


Thanks in advance

Hi Achim,


Please see the attachment or the screenshot for the requested functionality.


The example is a modified version of this example:

If you meant something different, just write me back.

Hi Christoph,

thanks for the code! I found a slightly different, but by far not so smart, solution...I'm checking the ActiveDev.ProductCategory, and if a "14658" shows up, I then check the ActiveDev.Chassis.ModuleDevNames, ProductType(s) for the right chassis (only one should be connected), and the right modules in this chassis.


Elsewise, I produce errors.


Best regards
