Hardware

  • PXI-4110

Driver

  • NI-DCPower

Issue Details

The Current Programming Accuracy/Resolution section of the PXIe-4110 Specification Sheet makes reference to a current level and a current limit. What should I use?

Solution

The current level setting is applicable only if the output function of the channel is set to NIDCPOWER_VAL_DC_CURRENT. It is the current the device attempts to generate.

 

The current limit setting is applicable only if the output function of the channel is set to NIDCPOWER_VAL_DC_VOLTAGE. It is the current that the output should not exceed when generating voltage.
