Possible reason(s):
Requested value is not a supported value for this property. The property value may be invalid because it conflicts with another property.


The NI 9219 only supports internal excitation, and cannot accept an external excitation voltage or perform Half-Bridge and Full-Bridge measurements with no excitation.

Additional Information

To use external excitation, National Instruments recommends the NI 9237 .
