|NI-DCPower (English | Japanese)|
Once you configure the device and it is in the Running state, the measure unit can take measurements.
The following table lists the settings for the niDCPower Measure When property or the NIDCPOWER_ATTR_MEASURE_WHEN attribute.
|On Demand||You can acquire measurements on demand using the niDCPower Measure VI and the niDCPower_Measure function (to measure either the voltage or the current on a single channel) or the niDCPower Measure Multiple VI and the niDCPower_MeasureMultiple function (to measure both the voltage and the current on multiple channels). When you call these VIs and functions, the measure unit takes a measurement and returns it.|
|Automatically after Source Complete||The measure unit acquires a measurement after every source operation and stores it in a buffer on the device. You can use the niDCPower Fetch Multiple VI and the niDCPower_FetchMultiple function to retrieve measurements from the buffer.|
|On Measure Trigger||The measure unit acquires a measurement when it receives a Measure trigger and stores it in a buffer on the device. You can use the niDCPower Fetch Multiple VI and the niDCPower_FetchMultiple function to retrieve measurements from the buffer. For more information see the Configuring Triggers and Events.|
