This article explains and walks you through how to create simulated NI-DAQmx devices in NI MAX.Sometimes you will find yourself needing to understand the functionality and test hardware capabilities without the hardware being physically present next to you, in these situations a simulated device can replicate the general behavior of the real device.Simulated devices are created using the NI-DAQmx Simulated Device option from the NI Measurement and Automation Explorer (MAX).Some important considerations while working with simulated devices:
It's best practice to rename your simulated devices to access them easily in software. To rename your devices navigate to each of your simulated device and right click. Select Rename from the drop-down menu.
