Digital triggering for analog acquisition on PCI-6024

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation
Advertisement
I would like to initiate an analog input scan when a digital line goes low using a PCI-6024 board. I connected the digital line to TRIG, and the analog line to AIN0. I tried using "Acquire N - Multi-Digital Trig.vi"...it almost works. It acquires a scan, but it may (randomly) start at either the rising or falling edge of the trigger, regardless of the rising/falling trigger edge setting. How do I get it to only acquire data on a falling edge?

Dear Dave -- If you set up your task using MAX, you can specify whether you need to start acquiring at the rising or the falling edge. Using this task in your experiment should effectively take care of the issue.
You can do the same from LabVIEW as well using the DAQmx Trigger VI and set the acquisition to begin at the rising or falling edge as you may choose it to be.

    I am using a 6020E BNC DAQPAD to acquire two seperate 12kHz analog signals from a sonar through ACH0 and ACH1. The sonar generates a digital start trigger at the start of each ping to notify the DAQ that new data is to follow and i am using this to t

  • Getting timestamp for analog acquisition with NI6110. Update:11-30

    When I use the AI Read VI to get a waveform containing a sequence of scans, the waveform has a timestamp that presumably represents the absolute time of acquisition of the first scan as measured using the system clock. (I can't find any documentation

  • Can I use the 2 digital triggers on the PCI-6023E to trigger 2 seperate Analog inputs on the same board? Update:11-30

    I want to monitor 2 analog DC signals (single point measurements, not a waveform) and I want to use the digital triggers to start the acquisition, 1 trigger for 1 AI. the measurements need to be made at 1Hz, maybe slower. Is this possible with the PC
