Issue Details

  • How can I programmatically read the on-board temperature sensor of a NI DMM device?
  • Can I read the actual internal temperature of NI DMMs?

Solution

In LabVIEW, you can access the device temperature using niDMM Get Dev Temp API. The Temperature value returns the current temperature of the board as a Celsius value. Refer to the below image to programmatically read the on-board temperature sensor of a NI DMM device.


 

Additional Information

The NI 4050 and NI 4060 are not supported. The On-board temperature value can also be used for calculating the accuracy the NI DMM.
