Issue Details

I am using an encoder in my application and I would like to enable Z indexing.  How do I do this?

Solution

To enable Z indexing follow these steps:
  1. Place a DAQmx Create Channel node on your block diagram.
  2. Configure the node as CI Angular Encoder (Counter Input>>Position>>Angular Encoder).  
  3. Wire a True Constant into the node's Z Axis Enable input.

Additional Information

An example of this implementation can be found in this DAQmx-Measure Angular Position document.
