more than 2 trigger input for the pxi-5422

Hi,

I use in my program the pxi-5422 with a script mode. But i need 3 trigger and the 5422 have only two.

 

Can i use trigger of the digital data smb-2163 ? or 3 of the 6 trigger input of the pxi-6653 !

 

Thanks.

Hello,

 

Can you be more specific ?

 

What kind of hardware do you use ? What do you want to do exactly ? Which softwares are you running ?

hello,

my program ( Labview VI ) is the same then the exemple given by the FGEN (FGEN switch between waveforms.vi).

but the difference is that i want to switch between the waveforms using a TRIG signal not a software TRIG.

 

the script that i use :

script SwitchWaveforms
   wait until scriptTrigger1      
         repeat until scriptTrigger2
         generate Waveform1
         end repeat
               repeat until scriptTrigger3        

               generate Waveform2
               end repeat

                    repeat 10        

                    generate Waveform3
                    end repeat
end script 

 

 

so i have 3 waveforms to generate => 3 TRIG signal.

 

i use the pxi 5422 but it propose only 2 trig input !

i try to use the trig input of the PXI-6653 but dont want to work !

 

any solution ?

 

thanks.

Hello,

 

Well, if your card doesn't allow more than 2 trigger, you won't be abled to use a third trigger from another card in the same script.

 

But maybe, you'll be able to use one trigger twice in the same script. Have you tried doing that ?
