Yes I want to programmatically select the timebase range that will work depending on the connected encoder PPR and expected RPM ranges.
I will look into the Configure Range.vi thank you.
I found the VI in the VI.lib under FieldPoint\Configuration\Configure Range.llb
It looks like it will work - for clarity here is a picture of the VI and the Input Range constant and the Channel numbers that would apparently be needed. Module address would need to be 1-to-[max module #] depending on which module in the system it is.
I don't have a module right now to test this VI with, so if someone does have one and can verify that this VI works with the cFP-QUAD-510 as well as the original intended target of the FP-QUAD-510, I would appreciate it.
I am really interested in knowing if this will work with cFP-QUAD-510 modules in a cFP-1804 chassis.
lt would really help if someone at NI could verify with an 1808 or 1804 backplane and a cFP-QUAD-510 hooked up whether I could implement this VI with that hardware.
I see the list of possible timebases in the operations manual, and the corresponding selections from the range constant. I'd rather not buy it to try it!
