Double-click the system definition filename node underneath the System Definition File node in the tree on the Project Explorer window to display this window. You also can launch the System Explorer window in stand-alone form by selecting Start»All Programs»National Instruments»NI VeriStand»System Explorer.

Use this window to create and/or modify a system definition file. You configure a system definition file by adding, removing, and modifying options in the configuration tree, located on the left of the System Explorer window. Using the System Explorer window, you can define various components of the system, including alarms, calculated channels, hardware I/O, system mappings, procedures, simulation models, system channels, user channels, and some VeriStand Engine execution settings.

Configuration Tree

The configuration tree on the left side of the window can contain the following options, which correspond to specific configuration pages. Only some of these options appear by default. Others, such as certain device, channel, or section types, only appear when you add the relevant item to the system definition. You typically can add items to a system definition by clicking an Add Item toolbar button or by right-clicking a parent item and selecting a child to add.

Note  Options that appear in italics have user-configurable names. They are listed here with their default names.
