Issue Details

We are trying to test our VIs using simulated devices generated in NI MAX. Is it possible to connect virtual PXI-4110 channel 0 to virtual PXI-4070 voltage input? Our simulated PXI-4070 only shows 50 VDC. 

Solution

Unfortunately not. The simulated PXI-4070 is measuring a simulated voltage signal equal to half the set range (100 V in your case) with some small noise added. This value is generated internally using software and cannot be replaced with another simulated value, e.g. from a simulated PXI-4110. 

You can still use both your simulated devices to test your application though, but they will run with independent simulated values.
