Routes signals (clocks, triggers, and events) to the output terminal you specify.

Any routes created within a session persist after the session closes to prevent signal glitching. To unconfigure signal routes created in previous sessions, set Reset Device in niFgen Initialize to TRUE or use niFgen Reset Device.

If you export a signal with this VI and commit the session, the signal is routed to the output terminal you specify.

Instrument Handle identifies your instrument session.

Instrument Handle is obtained from the niFgen Initialize VI, niFgen Initialize With Options VI, or the niFgen Initialize With Channels VI.

Signal Identifier specifies which instance of the selected signals to export.

Default value: None

None Default (for non instance-based signals)
ScriptTrigger0 Script trigger 0
ScriptTrigger1 Script trigger 1
ScriptTrigger2 Script trigger 2
ScriptTrigger3 Script trigger 3
Marker0 Marker 0
Marker1 Marker 1
Marker2 Marker 2
Marker3 Marker 3
DataMarker0 Data Marker 0 *
DataMarker1 Data Marker 1 *
DataMarker2 Data Marker 2 *
DataMarker3 Data Marker 3 *
*These Data Marker values apply only to single-channel devices or to multichannel devices that are configured for single-channel operation. When using a device that is configured for multichannel operation, specify the channel number along with the signal identifier. For example, to export Data Marker 0 on channel 1 of a device configured for multichannel operation, use the value 1/ DataMarker0. If you do not specify a channel when using a device configured for multichannel generation, the Data Marker generates on all channels.

Signal specifies the signal to export.

Sample Clock The Sample clock is exported.
Sample Clock Timebase The Sample clock timebase is exported.
Reference Clock The Reference clock is exported.
Onboard Reference Clock The onboard 10 MHz synchronization clock. (PCI only)
Start Trigger The Start trigger is exported.
Script Trigger The Script trigger is exported.
Marker Event The Marker event is exported.
Data Marker Event The Data Marker event is exported.
Ready For Start Event The Ready For Start event is exported.
Started Event The Started event is exported.
Done Event The Done event is exported.
Synchronization Pulse The synchronization pulse is exported. This signal is a synchronization strobe that is used to guarantee absolute synchronization between two or more signal generators. (NI 5404/5411/5431 only)
