Issue Details

I'm using NI ELVIS II+. I would like to use one of the PFI lines on the device as a digital trigger for a Digital Continuous Input/Output task. Is this possible using ELVIS II+?

Solution

You cannot use the PFI lines on ELVIS II+ to route a trigger signal for a Digital Input/Output task.

Additional Information

The ELVIS II+ does not support Start Trigger property for Digital tasks. However, the PFI line on the ELVIS II+ can be used to route triggers for Analog tasks.
