Data Type: uInt32
Description: Specifies the number of pulses of the Master Timebase needed to produce a single pulse of the Sample Clock Timebase.

The rate of the Sample Clock Timebase is equal to (frequency of Master Timebase) / (value of this property). The only valid values for this property are 1 and 200.

Setting this property has a similar effect to setting Rate. Use Rate when you know the rate of the Master Timebase and you want to produce a Sample Clock Timebase at the specified rate. Use this property when you have an external Master Timebase that you want to divide down and use as the Sample Clock Timebase, but you do not know rate of that external Master Timebase.



You can get/set/reset this property using:

  DAQmxGetSampClkTimebaseMasterTimebaseDiv

  DAQmxSetSampClkTimebaseMasterTimebaseDiv

  DAQmxResetSampClkTimebaseMasterTimebaseDiv
