Short Name: Current Limit Autorange

Property of niDCPower

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

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

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

The Current Limit Autorange property is applicable only if the channel is configured to DC Voltage in the Output Function property.

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