Parent Topic: Device Type Definitions

Channel type definitions define a set of properties you can assign to channels on a module. Whereas a module type definition defines which channel types a module supports, the channel type definition defines properties of a supported channel type.

Note  This definition is one part within the device type definition structure. In other words, when you export and import a device type definition, this definition is referenced.

You might develop a channel type definition for each kind of measurement that channels on a particular module can perform. For example, channels on the NI 9232 module can measure acceleration, displacement, velocity, voltage, and speed from a tachometer. NI InsightCM Server requires a separate channel type definition for each measurement because each requires some unique properties or default property values.
