Requires: myRIO Toolkit, roboRIO Toolkit, or NI ELVIS RIO Control Toolkit
Opens a reference to an encoder channel. You must open a reference before you use an encoder channel to read and decode signals from an encoder.
|Allow multiple opens? specifies whether to allow opening the specified channel more than once. The default is FALSE. You must set Allow multiple opens? to TRUE if you also use the specified channel in an Express VI.|
|Channel Name specifies the name of the encoder channel whose reference you want to open.|
|Encoder Signal Mode specifies the type of output signal from the encoder you use.
|error in describes error conditions that occur before this node runs. This input provides standard error in functionality.|
|Start Counter specifies whether the encoder tick counter starts immediately after the channel is open. The default is TRUE.|
|Encoder Ref Out returns a reference to the encoder channel that you specify.|
|error out contains error information. This output provides standard error out functionality.|
