instrument handle identifies a particular instrument session. instrument handle is obtained from the niDCPower Initialize With Channels VI.

channel name specifies to which output channel(s) to apply this configuration value. Specify multiple channels by using a channel list or a channel range. A channel list is a comma (,) separated sequence of channel names (for example, 0,2 specifies channels 0 and 2). A channel range is a lower bound channel followed by a hyphen (-) or colon (:) followed by an upper bound channel (for example, 0-2 specifies channels 0, 1, and 2). In the Running state, multiple output channel configurations are performed sequentially based on the order specified in this parameter.

output function configures the function to generate for the specified channel(s).

The default value is DC Voltage (1006).

DC Voltage (1006)

Sets the output function to DC voltage.

DC Current (1007)

Sets the output function to DC current.

Pulse Voltage (1049)

Sets the output function to pulse voltage.

Pulse Current (1050)

Sets the output function to pulse current.

error in (no error) describes error conditions that occur before this node runs. This input provides standard error in functionality.

/images/reference/en-XX/help/370736U-01/cbool.gif

status is TRUE (X) if an error occurred before this VI ran or FALSE (checkmark) to indicate a warning or that no error occurred before this VI ran. The default is FALSE.

/images/reference/en-XX/help/370736U-01/ci32.gif

code is the error or warning code. The default is 0. If status is TRUE, code is a non-zero error code. If status is FALSE, code is 0 or a warning code.

/images/reference/en-XX/help/370736U-01/cstr.gif

source describes the origin of the error or warning and is, in most cases, the name of the VI that produced the error or warning. The default is an empty string.

instrument handle out passes the handle used to identify the session in all subsequent NI-DCPower VI calls.

error out contains error information. This output provides standard error out functionality.

/images/reference/en-XX/help/370736U-01/ibool.gif

status is TRUE (X) if an error occurred or FALSE (checkmark) to indicate a warning or that no error occurred.

/images/reference/en-XX/help/370736U-01/ii32.gif

code is the error or warning code. If status is TRUE, code is a non-zero error code. If status is FALSE, code is 0 or a warning code.

When DC Voltage is selected, the device generates the desired voltage level on the output as long as the output current is below the current limit. The following VIs can be used to configure the channel when DC Voltage is selected:

When DC Current is selected, the device generates the desired current level on the output as long as the output voltage is below the voltage limit. The following VIs can be used to configure the channel when DC Current is selected:

When Pulse Voltage is selected, the device generates pulses at the desired pulse voltage levels on the output as long as the output current is below the pulse current limit. The following VIs can be used to configure the channel when Pulse Voltage is selected:

When Pulse Current is selected, the device generates pulses at the desired pulse current levels on the output as long as the output voltage is below the pulse voltage limit. The following VIs can be used to configure the channel when Pulse Current is selected:
