Issue Details

I am trying to acquire analog data using the TB 2708 as an accessory for my NI DAQ Hardware. I was able to configure this in MAX and use the setup in Test Panels. However, DAQ Assistant based LabVIEW code is giving me the error below :

Why is this error occurring ? How can I resolve this ?


The DAQ Assistant is an Express VI. Express VIs are developed to present the user with a choice based interface that increases ease of programming albeit with limited customization options. The accessories that can be used with the DAQ Assistant are hence limited and the error above is an example of the same.

Low level NI DAQmx VIs can be used to write a program for using a DAQ card with an accessory not permitted in DAQ Assistant.

Functional example codes for Data acquisition built with the low level NI DAQmx VIs are available in the example finder to jump start the development. These can be found in Hardware Input and Output -> DAQmx -> Analog Input. The Voltage-Continuous input VI can be used as a starting point for an analog input application.

Note : Please ensure front panel settings are set as per the application before running an example code.
