Short Name: Compliance Limit Symmetry

Property of niDCPower

Specifies whether compliance limits for current generation and voltage generation for the device are applied symmetrically about 0 V and 0 A or asymmetrically with respect to 0 V and 0 A.

When set to Symmetric, voltage limits and current limits are set using a single property with a positive value. The resulting range is bounded by this positive value and its opposite.

When set to Asymmetric, you must separately set a limit high and a limit low using distinct properties.

For asymmetric limits, the range bounded by the limit high and limit low must include zero.

Note  Refer to Supported Properties by Device for information about supported devices.

Default Value: Symmetric
