Issue Details

I am working with a number of PXI(e) systems with modular instruments in InstrumentStudio. I'd like to interact with them through this new environment, but not all of them appear. My DMMs and scopes appear just fine, but the HSDIO devices are not present. Are these cards supported in InstrumentStudio?

Solution

As per the InstrumentStudio 2018 ReadMe, the Supported Hardware section notes that NI-DCPower devices, NI-DMM devices, NI-FGEN devices, and NI-SCOPE devices are supported; however, NI-HSDIO devices are not supported. To interact with MI products not supported in InstrumentStudio outside of a software environment such as LabVIEW or LabWindows/CVI, you may use test panels, their respective soft front panel, or in the case of the PXIe-6570 or 6571, the Digital Pattern Editor.
