Data Type: float64
Description: Indicates the maximum convert rate supported by the task, given the current devices and channel count.

This rate is generally faster than the default AI Convert Clock rate selected by NI-DAQmx, because NI-DAQmx adds in an additional 10 microseconds per channel settling time to compensate for most potential system settling constraints.

For single channel tasks, the maximum AI Convert Clock rate is the maximum rate of the ADC. For multiple channel tasks, the maximum AI Convert Clock rate is the maximum convert rate of the analog hardware, including the ADC, filters, multiplexers, and amplifiers. Signal conditioning accessories can further constrain the maximum AI Convert Clock based on timing and settling requirements.

Restrictions: Not Settable
