I have many test fixture that contains each one a USB-6501 device. I wrote tasks for the test fixture #1. Then i duplicate the test fixture, the tasks was for DEV#1 and i have now DEV#2 (new USB-6501). I know i can write or copy new tasks but this mean each test fixture will need to be use with his own program. Is there a way a task can be use with the USB-6501 connected no matter wich one it is?

Note : the reason for duplication is related to production output. I use labview 2012

Thank you,

You can use the DAQmx API to search the connected devices to see if they match the device you want.  You will then have to build up your task(s) using that device name.
