FlexLogger as configuration based software does not support all DAQmx functionality as programming environments like LabVIEW do. This article explains how to use the onboard counters of a CompactDAQ Chassis with FlexLogger.

FlexLogger Versions up to 2020 R3:
Older versions of FlexLogger do not natively support the usage of onboard counters of the CompactDAQ-Chassis.

To configure counter measurements like angular position in FlexLogger for a CompactDAQ-Chassis,
you have to use the C Series Counter Input Module NI-9361.

FlexLogger Version 2020 R4:
This release includes CompactDAQ onboard counter support as preview feature.

To activate the onboard counter support, go to File - Preference - Preview features and activate Enablle the use of onboard counters for cDAQ chassis.
