  • PXI Oscilloscope

Software

  • System Configuration

Issue Details

NI Measurement & Automation Explorer (NI MAX) shows an Integrity Checksum property in the External Calibration section of my device's information. Is there an API that can read this checksum?

Solution

You can read the Calibration Checksum as shown in NI MAX using the System Hardware Property Node from the System Configuration API. The Calibration Checksum property can be found in The property node in Devices & Chassis >> Calibration, as shown in the screenshot below.

Additional Information

The attached Read Calibration Checksum.vi exemplifies how to use the System Configuration API to retrieve a session for a device, based on its name on NI MAX, to use with the System Hardware Property Node to read the Calibration Checksum property.
