The DAQ Assistant is a feature installed along with the DAQmx driver software which allows you to acquire simple measurements in LabVIEW in a short time with minimal programming.
As shown in the DAQmx readme file
, the ELVIS II and ELVIS II+ are the only ELVIS devices supported by DAQmx. Hence, the DAQ Assistant can not be used with the ELVIS I.
To program the ELVIS I, you can use the ELVIS Express VIs, or Soft Front Panel Instruments for simple and quick measurements or outputs, all of which are installed along with the NI ELVIS Traditional 3.0.7 driver software.
The Express VIs are the recommended method for programming NI ELVIS in LabVIEW. Express VIs allow you to interactively configure the settings for each instrument, similar to the DAQ Assistant. This enables you to develop LabVIEW applications without extensive programming expertise. To access the NI ELVIS Traditional Express VIs, open a LabVIEW block diagram and select: Instrument I/O » Instrument Drivers » NI ELVIS Traditional
from the functions palette.
