Issue Details

When trying to calibrate a DAQ card, self test error 200717 pops up on a single input channel.  This is a multi-channel card and we only use a certain subset of those channels.

Is there any way to calibrate the hardware on only the working channels? 


It is not possible to permanently calibrate a subset of the channels on this card. The self calibration procedure works through all available channels.

Single-channel calibration, tied to a specific DAQmx task, is possible. This is a software calibration method that does not update the physical values on the EEPROM.  Refer to this article for instructions on how to do so.
