Short Name: Voltage Level Autorange

Property of niDCPower

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

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

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

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

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