Property of niRFSG

Returns the device temperature. If the NI-RFSG session is controlling multiple devices, this property returns the temperature of the primary RF device. The NI-RFSG session is opened using the primary RF device name.

Serial signals between the sensor and the system control unit can potentially modulate the signal being generated, thus causing phase spurs. After the device thoroughly warms up, its temperature varies only slightly (less than 1 degree Celsius) and slowly, and it is not necessary to constantly poll this temperature sensor.
