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.
