Can't take Temperature Readings Using the TestPanels in MAX

Hardware

  • SCXI-1102

Software

  • Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX)

Issue Details

I'm using an SCXI system that has an SCXI 1001 chassis and an SCXI 1102 cards and I want to acquire temperature measurements using the Test Panels in NI-MAX. I'm only able to see the Analog Input task option. 

Solution

Is an expected behavior that you are only allowed to use an analog input task in the Test Panels with the SCXI 1102 card. Test Panels provide you with the lowest possible and direct access to the actual signals being read or generated by a device. Since the lowest form of data of temperature readings is a simple analog voltage, you will be able to read the voltage coming out from the thermocouple as an analog input task. 

Additional Information

The functionality that is offered by the Test Panels depends upon the specific device and/or task configuration.
