How Do I Import Tasks from NI MAX into SignalExpress?

Updated Jul 4, 2018

  • SignalExpress
  • Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX)

Issue Details

I have created several tasks in Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX), but I am unable to select from these tasks when I create a SignalExpress project.  Is there a way to use the tasks that I have already created?


You can import DAQmx Tasks that exist in MAX into a SignalExpress project like below procedures.

 1. Select Tools»Import NI-DAQmx Tasks From MAX...​

Figure.1 Select Import NI-DAQ Task from MAX...

2. A dialog will appear and you can select the specific task that you want to import. Then click OK.  
Figure.2 Set NI-DAQmx Task

Additional Information

Once imported, the task will be the same as a DAQmx Acquire step that you create from scratch. It will also include the same settings and calibration that you had set in NI MAX.
