Trigger Digital Output Task on an NI PCI-6024E

Go to solution



I would like to trigger a Digital Output task on the rising edge of a digital input, as shown in the below example.

SW - block Diagram.PNG

When I implement this VI on my NI PCI-6024E, I receive the following error after the sample clock VI block is run:

Possible reason(s):

Requested value is not a supported value for this property. The property value may be invalid because it conflicts with another property.

Property: SampTimingType
Requested Value: Sample Clock
Possible Values: On Demand

Task Name: _unnamedTask<15>


Am I correct in concluding that because the only possible value of the SampTimingType property is On Demand, I cannot trigger a digital output on the PCI-6024E?


If I am incorrect, I would appreciate any tips that people might have for setting up a digitally triggered digital output on the PCI-6024E.


Thank you!

I'm afraid you're correct, your 6024E device will *NOT* support any kind of hardware-clocked digital output.


The E-series design is more than 20 years old  It's probably time to move up to the PCIe bus and an X-series device (the 63xx series.)

[Edit:  P.S.   It *is* at least conceivable that you might be able to accomplish what you need to do using an AO task rather than a DO task.  I don't think E-series supports retriggering for AO tasks natively, but there's a workaround with its counters.  Unfortunately, the links I found seem to be dead at the moment, possibly a casualty of the very recent site redesign?]
