I have a PXI-6254 that I need to trigger with an external signal so it is synchronised with another device, however whichever source I tell it to use as a trigger (any PFI, PXI_Trig or the PXI_Star line), LabVIEW tells me "Error -200452 ... Specified property is not supported by the device or is not applicable to the task." As an example, I'm trying to do a digital output using the "Write Dig Chan-Int Clk-Dig Start.vi" example.
Is it really the case that this device can't be triggered with an external signal? The manual for this device (http://www.ni.com/pdf/manuals/371291h.pdf) implies that it can be triggered externally, and if it can, what am I doing wrong?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks for your response.
I would just like to point out then that the 625x specifications manual I referred to (http://www.ni.com/pdf/manuals/371291h.pdf) is wrong. On page 9 under "External Digital Triggers" it says "Source: any PFI, RTSI, PXI_TRIG, PXI_STAR." It then says that these are valid triggers for the digital and analogue input and output sample clocks.
