Use Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX) to configure your National Instruments hardware. MAX informs other programs about which devices reside in the system and how they are configured. MAX is installed by default with NI-DMM.

  1. Launch MAX by navigating to Start»All Programs»National Instruments»Measurement & Automation or by clicking the Measurement & Automation desktop icon.
  2. In the Configuration pane, double-click Devices and Interfaces to see the list of installed devices. Installed devices appear under the name of their associated chassis.
  3. Expand your Chassis tree item. MAX lists all devices installed in the chassis. Your default device names may vary.
  4. Record the device identifier MAX assigns to the hardware. Use this identifier when programming your DMM.
