Which Experts Are Valid Inputs for System Configuration API Functions?

Updated Feb 9, 2018

Issue Details

I am trying to use the Find, Export, or Import functions from the System Configuration API in LabVIEW. I would like to filter the devices I see using the Experts input. What are valid strings for each driver when using the Experts input terminal/parameter?

Solution

To get all of the available experts terminal/parameter strings on a system, you can call the Get System Experts VI in the System Configuration API. This VI returns a string array of all the available experts strings on the selected system.

The following table is a list of supported product lines and their associated experts input strings. Note that some product lines may only be used with either the System Configuration Find or the Export/Import VIs, while others may be used with both. You may also leave the input empty to include all supported products.

*NI FlexRIO hardware was accessed through the NI-RIO expert prior to 2014 
**With CompactRIO 14.1, the cRIO expert only supports acquiring temperature data on the sbRIO-9651.
***NI-Sync hardware is accessed through the NI-Sync expert on Linux desktop and LinuxRT systems. On Windows systems, NI-Sync hardware can be accessed through the NI-DAQmx expert.
