Error -200077 While Performing Sample Clock Timed Digital I/O

Hardware

  • PXI-6030E

Driver

  • NI-DAQmx

Issue Details

I get an error when outputting a digital waveform using an NI-6030E device. What is the cause of this error?

Error -200077 occurred at DAQmx Timing (Sample Clock.vi)
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.


Solution

This error is thrown because the NI-6030E and similar devices do not support hardware timing, even through an external sample clock. For these devices, the user must implement software timing for digitial I/O.

Additional Information

You can check the device routes in MAX to see if there is a route from an external sample clock to a digital port.
