instrument handle identifies a particular instrument session.


channels specifies the channel from which to acquire data.

For more information, refer to Channel String Syntax.


vertical range specifies the absolute value of the input range for a channel.

For example, to acquire a sine wave that spans between –5 and +5 V, set the vertical range to 10.0 V.


vertical offset specifies the location of the center of the range with respect to ground.

For example, to acquire a sine wave that spans between 0.0 and 10.0 V, set this property to 5.0 V.


probe attenuation specifies the probe attenuation for the input channel.

Default Value: 1


vertical coupling specifies how to couple the input signal. When input coupling changes, the input stage takes a finite amount of time to settle.


error in describes error conditions that occur before this node runs. This input provides standard error in functionality.


channel enabled specifies whether the channel is enabled for acquisition.

Default Value: TRUE


instrument handle out has the same value as the instrument handle.


error out contains error information. This output provides standard error out functionality.
