Trying to enable lowpass filter USB-6001 with nidaqmx python library

Solved!
Go to solution

I have read several posts on this forum to try and figure out how to enable the lowpass filter through python on my usb-6001. No one seems to have the issue i am having... The lowpass filter works correctly in labview but everytime I try to implement it in python I am met with the following error code: 

 

nidaqmx.errors.DaqError: Specified property is not supported by the device or is not applicable to the task.
Property: DAQmx_AI_Lowpass_Enable
Channel Name: Dev3/ai3

Task Name: _unnamedTask<0>

Status Code: -200452

 

I will attach my implementation below:

 

with nidaqmx.Task() as task:
    channel = task.ai_channels.add_ai_voltage_chan("Dev3/ai3")
    channel.ai_lowpass_enable = True

I couldn't find in the User Manual or Specifications that 6001 has a configurable low-pass filter.

 

How did you verify that your LabVIEW code works exactly?

 i verified that it works by applying it to a real time voltage reading. Without the filter the graph of data is useless, indiscernible noise. With the filter and cutoff of 10Hz, the data looks as intended

So, you do realize that this low pass filter is a separate function and in no way related to DAQmx and 6001, right?
