LabVIEW Instrument Design Libraries for Reconfigurable Oscilloscopes

Use Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX) to configure your National Instruments hardware. MAX informs other programs about which devices reside in the system and how they are configured. MAX can optionally be installed with the instrument design libraries.

  1. Launch MAX by navigating to Start»All Programs»National Instruments»Measurement & Automation or by clicking the NI MAX desktop icon.
  2. In the Configuration pane, double-click Devices and Interfaces to see the list of installed devices. Installed devices appear under the name of their associated chassis.
  3. Expand your Chassis tree item. MAX lists all devices installed in the chassis. NI reconfigurable oscilloscopes appear as NI-RIO devices in the list. Your default device names may vary.
    Note Note  If you do not see your hardware listed, refer to the Troubleshooting topic.
  4. Record the RIO Resource Name MAX assigns to the hardware. Use this identifier when programming your reconfigurable oscilloscope.
Caution Caution  When you install, uninstall, or move an NI-RIO device in your system, resource identification of your NI-RIO devices may change. Whenever any of these changes occur, verify resource identification of all your NI-RIO devices in MAX, and, if necessary, make changes to your software and documentation.
