Short Name: Is Source Channel

Property of niSwitch

Specifies whether to designate the channel as a source channel.

Set this property to TRUE when you connect the channel to a power supply, a function generator, or an active measurement point on the unit under test, and you do not want to connect the channel to another source. The instrument driver prevents source channels from connecting to each other: when you attempt to connect two source channels, the niSwitch Connect Channels VI returns the Attempt To Connect Sources error.
