Short Name: Pulse Bias Current Limit

Property of niDCPower

Specifies the pulse bias current limit, in amps, that the output cannot exceed when generating the desired pulse bias voltage on the specified channel(s) during the off phase of a pulse. Limit is specified as a positive value, but symmetric positive and negative limits are enforced simultaneously.

This property is applicable only if the Output Function property is set to Pulse Voltage and the Compliance Limit Symmetry property is set to Symmetric.

Note  The channel must be enabled for the specified pulse bias current limit to take effect. Refer to the Output Enabled property for more information about enabling the output channel.
Note  Refer to Supported Properties by Device for information about supported devices.

Valid Values: The valid values for this property are defined by the values you specify for the Pulse Current Limit Range property.
