Short Name: CO.Prescaler

Property of DAQmx Channel

Specifies the divisor to apply to the signal you connect to the counter source terminal. Pulse generations defined by frequency or time take this setting into account, but pulse generations defined by ticks do not. You should use a prescaler only when you connect an external signal to the counter source terminal and when that signal has a higher frequency than the fastest onboard timebase.
