channel names in PXI 6229

Hi,

I am trying to get channel names, like PXI1Slot2/ai0, for a PXI-6229 card. I could not find any APIs for it in nidaqmx.h.

But, NI MAX correctly picks up the number of channels and the channel names in each type..for any MIO card in the Test Panel. Can anyone help me find out how to get the channel names in PXI-6229?

 

Thanks,

Priya.

Hi,

 

I believe you should be able to get the channel names in the same manner as in LabVIEW.

 

Maybe using DAQ Assistant would be of more help. Have a look at the link below:

You can use the "DAQmxGetDeviceAttribute" function to get the list of physical channels in the device.

 

In CVI you can browse to this fucntion from the library tree like this "NI-DAQmx Library > Advanced>DeviceControl"

 

Eg:- DAQmxGetDeviceAttribute ("PXI1Slot2", DAQmx_Dev_AI_PhysicalChans, physicalChannels);
