The information in this topic applies to the following modules:
You can access Transducer Electronic Data Sheet (TEDS) information from TEDS-compatible transducers connected to the channels of the module. You must enable TEDS support for the module before you can read TEDS information. You can access TEDS information only from the host VI.
Complete the following steps to enable TEDS support for the module.
The FPGA VI must have an FPGA I/O Node or an FPGA I/O Property Node that communicates with the module. If it does not, the LabVIEW FPGA Compile Server optimizes the VI when you compile it, and the host VI cannot communicate with the module.
After you develop the FPGA VI and open a reference to it in the host VI, complete the following steps to read TEDS information from the module.
|Note The host VI cannot access TEDS information while the module is in acquisition mode. The module must exit acquisition mode before the host VI can access TEDS information.|
|Modules||Valid Channel Values|
|NI 9218||0 through 1|
|NI 9219||0 through 3|
|NI 9230||0 through 2|
|NI 9231||0 through 7|
|NI 9232||0 through 2|
|NI 9234||0 through 3|
|NI 9237||0 through 3|
|NI 9250||0 through 1|
When you run the VI, LabVIEW reads the TEDS from the sensor, and the LabVIEW TEDS Toolkit parses the TEDS information and outputs it as a table.
|Note You must enable error handling in the FPGA VI to receive consistent error messages in the host VI.|
Refer to the module Getting Started (FPGA) VI at labview\examples\CompactRIO\Module Specific\<module>\<module> Getting Started for an example of how to access TEDS information.
