Hi MansoorEE,


Are you working with a Real-Time system, or is this a Windows-based application?

I am trying to use the SMB TRIG connector as well. We are running Labview RT on the controller. Is there any information on how to use it?

Hi pDub,


First, I'd like to point out:

  • At present time, triggers cannot be routed throught the SMB connector if your controller is running Windows.
  • The SMB connector is intended primarily for use in watchdog timing on RT systems.
  • Trigger allocation is required, so that trigger lines are not double-driven.

Since you are running LabVIEW RT, you should be able to take advantage of the connector.  If you plan to route I/O timing or triggering signals for tight synchronization through the connector, I would recommend that you consider alternative options.


That being said, you'll probably find these examples helpful.

Hi kb_MEMBER your link to the usage examples seems to be broken.
