Members

Member nameDescription
AnalogInputAccelerometer An analog input channel that measures acceleration from an accelerometer.
AnalogInputBridge An analog input channel that measures Voltage ratios from a Wheatstone bridge.
AnalogInputCurrent An analog input channel that measures current.
AnalogInputForce An analog input channel that uses a Wheatstone bridge to measure force or load.
AnalogInputPressure An analog input channel that uses a Wheatstone bridge to measure pressure.
AnalogInputStrainGage An analog input channel that measures strain.
AnalogInputTemperatureRTD An analog input channel that measures temperature from an RTD.
AnalogInputTemperatureThermistorIex An analog input channel that measures temperature using a thermistor that requires current excitation.
AnalogInputTemperatureThermistorVex An analog input channel that measures temperature using a thermistor that requires voltage excitation.
AnalogInputTemperatureThermocouple An analog input channel that measures temperature using a thermocouple.
AnalogInputTorque An analog input channel that uses a Wheatstone bridge to measure torque.
AnalogInputVoltage An analog input channel that measures voltage.
AnalogOutputCurrent An analog output channel that measures current.
AnalogOutputVoltage An analog output channel that measures voltage.
CounterInputCountEdges A counter input channel that counts the number of rising or falling edges of a digital signal.
CounterInputFrequency A counter input channel that measures the frequency of a digital signal.
CounterInputPeriod A counter input channel that measures the period of a digital signal.
CounterInputPositionLinearEncoder A counter input channel that uses a linear encoder to measure linear position.
CounterInputPulseMeasurement A counter input channel that measures pulse specifications. Note that only X Series DAQ devices support this measurement type.
CounterOutputPulseGeneration A counter output channel that generates digital pulses. To assign this measurement type to channels on a non-X Series DAQ device, use the SetBooleanProperty method to set the isHWTSP property for the counter output channel to false (False in Visual Basic). If isHWTSP is true (True in Visual Basic), only X Series DAQ devices support this measurement type.
DigitalInput A digital input channel that measures digital signals.
DigitalOutput A digital output channel that generates digital signals.
UserDefined A channel that implements a user-defined measurement type.

Remarks

For information about the channel properties that belong to each enumeration value and information about accessing them, refer to the list of DAQ channel properties.
