This document is part of the Getting Started with NI-DAQmx Series.This article will walk-through how to create tasks using simulated or physical NI-DAQmx devices in NI Measurement and Automation Explorer (MAX). In order to determine if your device is simulated or real check the icon color. The icon color of all NI-DAQmx simulated devices are the yellow version of the physical devices. Some physical device colors can be green, black, or grey. Be sure to check for Simulated NI-DAQmx Device Considerations to confirm what you want to accomplish can be done with a simulated device.
