Setting Shunt Calibration in Scan Mode for CompactRIO

Issue Details

I am using CompactRIO Scan Mode and need to programmatically set the shunt calibration of a channel. How can I do this?

Solution

There are two ways to accomplish this:
  1.  In versions of LabVIEW later than 8.6, there is a VI available to use specifically for this purpose. You can find the Set Shunt Calibration (Scan Interface) VI located at: 

    <LabVIEW>\examples\CompactRIO\Shared\Set Shunt Calibration (Scan Interface).vi
  2.  Use a Property Node for the Module you are using and set Property:Enable Shunt Calibration to True.


     

Additional Information

Since we are using a Property Node, you can expand the node down to Enable Shunt Calibration for every channel on the module.
