Hardware

  • PXI-6284
  • PXI-6281

Driver

  • NI-DAQmx 17.5

Issue Details

I am interested in using a multidevice task to synchronize my hardware, does M-Series DAQ support this?

Solution

No, M-Series does not support multidevice tasks.

For information on synchronizing M-Series devices, refer to M Series Synchronization with LabVIEW and NI-DAQmx.

For a list of device families which do support multi-device tasks, refer to the DAQmx Help Documentation regarding Multidevice Tasks.

If you want to test whether two particular devices support multidevice tasks, try simulating the devices in NI-MAX and creating a new AI task which utilizes one channel from each. If this process results in an error (ex. Error 201426), then multidevice tasks are not supported.
