Issue Details

I have a USB-6001 device and I am trying to configure a DAQmx task to use the hardware clock on the device however it returns an error when I try to run the VI. Does my device support hardware timing?


The USB-6001 does not support Digital I/O hardware timing.
It does however support Analog I/O hardware timing.
