The following flowchart depicts the main steps required in an NI-DAQmx application to measure temperature with a thermocouple. Alternatively, you can configure a task for measuring temperature using the DAQ Assistant.

Tip  To increase performance, especially when multiple samples are read, include the Start function/VI and Stop function/VI in your application. In the previous flowchart, the Start function/VI would come just before you read samples, and Stop would come just before you clear the task.

Measuring temperature is an example of analog input measurement. Refer to Analog Input Programming Flowcharts for additional flowcharts that can help you create an application.
