Communicate with a cDAQ or USB DAQ Device Using SCPI Commands

Updated Sep 11, 2019

Reported In

Hardware

  • CompactDAQ Chassis

Driver

  • NI-DAQmx

Issue Details

  • I have a cDAQ chassis and I would like to communicate with it using low level VISA SCPI commands. Is this possible and is there a manual with the SCPI commands?
  • I have a USB-6525 that I would like to communicate with it using low level VISA SCPI commands. Is this possible?

Solution

No, neither the cDAQ platform nor NI USB's are SCPI complaint. Instead, we have developed NI-DAQmx which is the driver needed to communicate with our National Instruments hardware. It is possible to control your cDAQ with Python and DAQmx.

 

Additional Information

The NI-DAQmx driver can be used to program in LabVIEW, LabWindows/CVI, and Measurement Studio for Visual Studio .NET.
