Issue Details

I want to simulate an oscilloscope PXIe-5172 in NI Measurement and Automated Explorer (NI MAX) but I can't find a PXIe-5172 from NI-DAQmx Simulated Devices.
 
 

Solution

You can not simulate a PXIe-5172 in NI MAX. However, you can simulate a PXIe-5172 in LabVIEW using the niScope Initialize With Options  function of the NI-SCOPE driver. This requires that you have the NI-SCOPE driver installed. In addition, you have to use correct model names  5172 (4CH - 325T), 5172 (8CH - 325T) and 5172 (8CH - 410T) for option string of niScope Initialize With Options function to simulate the corresponding PXIe devices.

The option strings are:
  • Simulate = 1, DriverSetup = Model:5172 (4CH - 325T); BoardType:PXIe
  • Simulate = 1, DriverSetup = Model:5172 (8CH - 325T); BoardType:PXIe
  • Simulate = 1, DriverSetup = Model:5172 (8CH - 410T); BoardType:PXIe
