How to Monitor PXIe Health Programmatically

Updated May 3, 2018

Issue Details

How can I use the System Monitoring API to read in supply rails, temp, fan speed etc of a PXIe?

Solution

See the example for PXIe Health Monitoring

This example VI demonstrates how to monitor PXIe chassis temperatures, fan speeds, and voltage rails. It can be easily adapted or expanded to include other heath information like CPU Usage.

 

Additional Information

The VI uses the System Configuration API to get a reference to a local or remote PXIe chassis and use that reference to periodically report the chassis' temperatures, fan speeds, and voltage rails. These values are the same ones that are reported in MAX under the "Settings" tab of the PXIe chassis.
