Issue Details

When configuring my DAQmx counter task, I receive the following error:
 
Error -200527: Requested values of the Minimum and Maximum properties for the counter channel are not supported for the given type of device.
 
The values that can be specified for Minimum and Maximum depend on the counter timebase rate.
 
 
How can I resolve this error?

Solution

Check your device's specification sheet for maximum and minimum counter rates.

Additionally, make sure that your minimum property is at least twice your timebase rate, to satisfy Nyquist's Theorem. Your timebase must be twice as fast to record the frequency of a signal, and would ideally be ten times faster to plot a waveform.
