Short Name: Current Level Autorange

Property of niDCPower

Specifies whether NI-DCPower automatically selects the current level range based on the desired current level for the specified channel(s).

If you set this property to On, NI-DCPower ignores any changes you make to the Current Level Range property. If you change the Current Level Autorange property from On to Off, NI-DCPower retains the last value the Current Level Range property was set to (or the default value if it was never set) and uses that value as the current level range.

Refer to the Current Level Range property for information about which range NI-DCPower automatically selects.

The Current Level Autorange property is applicable only if the Output Function property is set to DC Current.

Default Value:Refer to Supported Properties by Device for the default value by device.
