Right-click an NI 9205 or NI 9206 C Series module in the Project Explorer window and select Properties from the shortcut menu to display this dialog box.

Use this dialog box to configure a C Series module.

This dialog box includes the following components:

  • Name—Specifies the name of the C Series module, which appears in the Project Explorer window. LabVIEW assigns a default name to the module based on the slot number. You can use this field to give the module a descriptive name.
  • Module Type—Specifies the type of C Series module. You cannot change this option.
  • Location—Specifies a slot in the chassis for the C Series module.
  • Calibration Mode—Sets the calibration mode for the C Series module. Select Calibrated if you want the FPGA I/O Node to return calibrated, fixed-point data from the module in units of volts. The fixed-point data is signed, with a word length of 26 bits and an integer word length of 5 bits. Select Raw if you want the FPGA I/O Node to return uncalibrated, binary data from the module. If you select Raw, you must convert and calibrate the analog input values in the host VI. The default is Calibrated.
  • Channel Configuration—Specifies the input range for each channel.
    • Channels—Specifies the channel(s) for which you want to select the input range.
    • Input Range—Specifies the input range for the selected channel(s) as ±10 V, ±5 V, ±1 V, or ±200 mV.
    • Terminal Mode—Specifies the terminal mode for the selected channel(s) as RSE (referenced single-ended), NRSE (non-referenced single-ended ), or DIFF (differential).
  • Minimum Time Between Conversions—Specifies the minimum time between conversions in µs.
  • Enable Advanced Self-Calibration Nodes—Place a checkmark in this checkbox if you want to enable Self-Calibration support in the FPGA for this module.
