|NI-DCPower (English | Japanese)|
Simulate a power supply or SMU using NI-DCPower or Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX) to develop, modify, and/or test an application without hardware. Using a simulated device to test an application eliminates the risk of hardware damage. Additionally, you can use a simulated power supply or SMU to evaluate an NI product for which you do not have hardware.
|Tip As with any installed and configured power supply or SMU, you can use the NI-DCPower Soft Front Panel to test the basic functionality of the device.|
Complete the following steps to create and configure a simulated power supply or SMU using NI-DCPower.
|The DriverSetup keyword is set using the driver setup string—the device model number and board type. When you specify the driver setup string, NI-DCPower ignores the resource name parameter. If you do not specify the driver setup string, NI-DCPower simulates the device specified in the resource name parameter. If you specify neither the driver setup string nor the resource name parameter, NI-DCPower simulates an NI PXI-4110 by default.|
When simulating an NI PXI-4110, use the
following option string parameter:
Simulate=1, DriverSetup=Model:4110; BoardType:PXI
Complete the following steps to create and configure a simulated power supply in Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX).
