Issue Details

I am using an NI 9505 module for my motor control application but need to set it to an enabled state in order to be able to use it. How can I do this in LabVIEW?


To set your NI 9505 module to an enabled state use an FPGA I/O Method Node:
  1. Drop an FPGA I/O Method Node to the block diagram from the FPGA I/O palette
  2. Right click on the FPGA I/O Method Node and select Add New FPGA I/O... from the drop down menu
  3. From the dialog box that pops up select your NI 9505 device
  4. You can now programmatically set your device to an enabled state from the configured node
