Issue Details

I would like to make multiple period separated measurements for several Units Under Test using the Two-Edge Separation Measurement Task. How can I implement this one one cDAQ? 

Solution

A cDAQ can support the same number of Two-Edge Separation Measurement Tasks as the number of counters on your cDAQ. The NI-9361 Counter Input Module only supports Two-Edge Separation Measurements on a cRIO FPGA, and cannot be used on a cDAQ for that type of measurement. It does support many other counter measurements. Please see the NI-9361 Datasheet for more detail.
