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

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. If needed, expand the node down to Enable Shunt Calibration on multiple channels.

    Additional Information

    The LabVIEW Real-Time Module is required in order to program this functionality in the Scan Interface Mode on a CompactRIO.
