Looking at output counter signal



I am using the NI 6132 multifunction daq card and am outputting a continous pulse out of my counter0 out pin.  I would like to somehow monitor what Im actually outputting..Ive tried sending the output of the counter back into an analogue input of the card and ive also tried a PFI input but have had no success...any help would be appreciated.

Hi Agi,


Your application sounds very interesting, you wont be able to read in a counter from an analogue input so to start with wire the Ctr0 Ouput (Pin2) to PFI3 (Pin42). This will allow you to read in a pulse train generated on Ctr0 from Ctr1.


Please let me know how you get on with this.
