Multi-devices synchronization problem with Analog input and quadrature measurement

In my welding application, I use a S series DAQ card (PXI 6123 in slot 2) to capture analog signals, and a M series DAQ card (PXI 6221 in slot 3) to do quadrature displacement measurement. I try to synchronize these two cards with error data flow. 
When I use digital start triggering, the displacement waveform seems correct. 
However, when I change to analog start triggering, the displacement waveform seems incorrect.
I am attaching the screenshot and the VIs to this post. Any help and comment will be very appreciated.

Hi JSInc, I am not exactly sure what I am looking at here.  When you do the digital edge trigger, what signal is connected to PFI0?  You are also doing two fundamentally different triggering types.  One is an edge trigger and one is a reference trigger.  With the edge trigger, it seems like you are acquiring 50ms of data after the rising edge comes in (the one that I'm not sure where it is coming from).  With the reference trigger, you are acquiring 40ms of data after and 10ms of data before the analog signal get's above 100.You have it labeled as current, but the task is setup as a voltage task, so you are using a voltage trigger.  That might be an issue.It looks like the trigger is starting the task too early so the displacement is still at zero when it is being acquired.  Is this correct?If you could elaborate a little more on your application, I can help you much better.

Hi Nick F.,
Sorry I did not explain my problem clear.
I setup a "current" scale in MAX, then I have a "current" task in my VI, which actually is a voltage task.
For the digital edge trigger, I wire the output of a relay as triggering signal to PFI0. When I set falling edge as triggering edge, the close action of the relay will start the DAQ. It seems in this way I can get my VI working now.
My problem is that some of my welding equipments dose NOT have a relay output can do digital edge trigger, so that I have to trigger the DAQ by "current", it is actually a voltage trigger. When I use reference analog window trigger, the counter task starts too early (or too late) so that the data acquired is almost zero.
After my last post, I spent more time in my lab, I found that if I use start analog window trigger, the VI acquired displacement data at the right moment as expected.
Back to my question: Is there anyway to use reference analog window trigger in my application?

Does anybody know whether I did something wrong in the program or this is just how Labview works?

Hello JSInc,


I think I have a couple suggestions that will help you adjust your timing so that you can get the data you want.


1.  When you run the DAQmx Start Task VI for the counter it will begin incrementing from its default value.  However, until your analog input task is running, none of the values from the encoder will be read since you're using the analog input sample clock as the counter sample clock as well.  This brings me to my second point:


2.  The behavior of your analog input task is fundamentally different when you configure a start trigger and an analog window trigger.  Since I'm not sure which you actually want, I'll describe the behavior of both.

a. Start trigger:  When you use a start trigger, calling a DAQmx Start Task VI puts the task into the state of waiting for the start trigger--at this point the sample clock is not running because the task hasn't been started.


b. Analog Window Trigger:  This is a reference trigger and determines which values to save.  When using this type of trigger the DAQmx Start Task start the sample clock and the task is continually acquiring samples.  With this type of trigger the task uses a circular buffer with a size equal to the number of samples to acquire.  Then, when it receives this trigger is saves the pre-trigger samples and acquires enough post-trigger samples to fill the buffer.  The difference here is that the counter is continually buffering samples until the task is stopped.

Depending on what you're trying to do there may be a better way to implement triggering.  In particular it would be helpful to know the following if the above descriptions aren't clear:

1.  Do you want synchronized samples (same rate and start) from the analog input and counter input?

2.  Do you want the same number of samples from both?

3.  Relative to your external trigger when do you want these samples?  All post-trigger?  Some pre-trigger?

4.  Also, you mentioned that you do not have a digital start trigger--what type of signal is your trigger?  Square wave, sine wave, other?  What is the amplitude of the pulse/signal?


With this information it will be easier to provide advice.  I hope this helps, and have a great day!

Hello Brooks,
Thank you for your input. My answers to your questions:
1. Yes.
2. Yes.
3. If you mean external trigger is digital start trigger, these samples I want are all post-trigger, since I can set my equipment to send out the trigger signal before analog signal comes. For analog trigger, I want some pre-trigger samples, doing so I will not miss any portion of analog signal.
4. For digital start trigger, it is the close contact of a relay sent to the PFI0. For the analog trigger, it is a voltage signal, the shape of the waveform is showed in the attachment of the first post, I am attaching it again in this post, I named it as "Current" in the screenshot. The amplitude of the voltage signal ranges from 0.5 to 2.0 Volts.
Again, I really very appreciate your help.

Hello JSinc,
I think that the problem may be that you've selected an Analog Window Reference Trigger and not an Analog Window Start Trigger.  If you change this to a start trigger I would expect the behavior to be identical to using a digital start trigger.  Is this what you're asking or are you trying to do something more complicated?
x9561 (148438)
5/22/2008 9:10:05 PM
You are right, if I use Analog Window Start Trigger, the behavior would be identical to using digital start trigger. But I will miss a portion of analog signal doing this way.
What I am asking is: Can we make it work with Reference Analog Window Trigger?

Hello JSinc,


It sounds like you want to acquire pre-start-trigger samples.  From what you've said it sounds like you have an analog input signal and encoder that you only want to sample when the analog input it is reading the voltages you see on the screen shots you've provided.  Essentially you want to implement a reference trigger on both measurements.  Is this correct?


If this is the case, I would recommend just doing a continuous acquisition and cropping your data in software.  In order to crop your data you can use the Trigger and Gate VI to implement a software reference trigger after you read all the data in.  To do this just start both tasks together and read continuously.


If you weren't also acquiring samples from your encoder I would recommend using an analog reference trigger to acquire the correct points utilizing the pre-trigger samples feature.  The issue with using this method in your case is that the sample clock is running during the entire acquisition so you would end up with continuous samples from the encoder and only the pre and post-trigger samples specified on the analog input and no way to know when they occurred relative to each other.

Problem with analog input, processing the signal, and analog output
Hello, &nbsp; I'm trying to read a signal continuously, process it by applying a bandpass filter (and in the future, a delay) and converting to a square wave, and using analog output to send it to an instrument. My hardware is a PCI-6031E for input and a PCI-6733 for output. I am reading at 5k samples per second, trying to filter out a 60 Hz component to generate a 60 Hz square wave. I am reading 5000 samples each time the VI is called, so that displays are updated every second. &nbsp; However, when writing out, the data is crammed in the first half second, with the rest of it stuck either at the high or low point of the square wave. Thus, the output frequency of the signal is 120 Hz instead of 60 Hz. &nbsp; What could be the issue? I tried to use shift registers to correct the problem, but that does not happen. When checking the waveforms, they are made of 5000 points with a dt of 0.0002, which should translate to 1 second of data. &nbsp; I attach the diagram of the code, and images of the&nbsp;signal before output and the measured&nbsp;ouput. &nbsp; Thanks! &nbsp; &nbsp; ActualOutput1.gif: http://forums.ni.com/attachments/ni/170/335949/1/ActualOutput1.gif LabVIEW_code1.gif: http://forums.ni.com/attachments/ni/170/335949/2/LabVIEW_code1.gif SoftwareGeneratedSignal1.gif: http://forums.ni.com/attachments/ni/170/335949/3/SoftwareGeneratedSignal1.gif Hi Villalro, &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The digital output ...

Analog measurement WITHOUT DAQ device

If not kindly suggest the options available for DAQ device. &nbsp; In the traditional interfacing techniques which uses parallel port and/or serial port. We can acquire signal using C language and inport and outport commands.And no DAQ is required.... I was hoping if LabVIEW can be used without a DAQ device. &nbsp; I know that RS232 and parallel port can be used but how will the space and mark levels be used for acquiring an analog signals. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The parallel and RS-232 ports cannot be used for analog acquisition with C or any other language.

Now, we have been assigned a more difficult task, for which we would like to hear your advice. We apologize in advance for our bad english. We are going to acquirie analog data from 16 different channels, using a pci-6143 card. In addition, we want to activate our external stimulation device using a digital output 24bit&nbsp; 1D boolean array. This action is supposed to happen after a certain amount of analog measurements, e.g. 2000 time steps. To receive the most exact data, we want to avoid LabViews clock functions and only use the clocks of the PCI-Card So, the question is: Is there a way to tell the PCI-Card to do different things after a certain amount of time steps? Like saying: For the first 2000 time steps, you send a 24 bit binary array containing only FALSEs, in that particular step you send an array containing only TRUEs and afterwards again only FALSEs. The way we assume this could work is the following: We create a CO-Pulse channel, use the "Get Terminal Name with Device Prefix.vi" and use this as a source for our sample clock with which we are going to get our analog samples. In addition, we create another CO-Pulse channel with a specified delay and another "*Device Prefix.vi" to use as a source for our second sample clock which is wired to our digital output channel. This way, the time difference between the start of the a...

Configuration problem with LabVIEW and Measurement &amp; Automation
Hi, I have been trying to run the NI-DAQmx for the last couple of days but it is not working properly or actually not working at all. I am trying to acquire data using a PCI-6143 card. Everytime I am trying to open the Measurement &amp; Automation explorer it tells me to check the configuration. It says: "Executable version (7.1.1) doesn't match resource file (7.1). Check your configuration." When I then click ok nothing happens I have to close it using the task manager. I tried to check the configuration but even that does not help or does not even work. How&nbsp;will I be able to get it run again. I talked to some of my colleagues and they told me that it has never been a problem before. Is there any other way then reinstalling it? &nbsp; Thank you for your help ...

Problem with PCI 6040 in reading multiple analog inputs.
i am using PCI-6040 in my appliation. I am required to read 8 analog inputs. I started with reading two&nbsp;analog inputs&nbsp; (A00 &amp; A01)&nbsp;using two DAQs.I found that only&nbsp;&nbsp;one of them is reading the input and other just reads 0V always. &nbsp; if i use single step&nbsp; both DAQ&nbsp;will work properly. Also if i use "Highlight Execution" button then both DAQ work properly. but if i try running it ( without single step and " Highlight execution" ) one of them dont work properly. &nbsp; summary is, if i use&nbsp;two ( or more )&nbsp;DAQ in same VI is one of them will not&nbsp;work. But if i use only&nbsp;one DAQ in VI, it is working properly. I checked it for both channels .( A00 and A01 ) &nbsp; i tried using single DAQ for both inputs. But after configuring for the same if found that&nbsp;DAQ is giving only one output pin. &nbsp; i am new to Labview and i am in need of desparate help &nbsp; please help me &nbsp; thanks in advance.. Hi there, &nbsp; gwd is right.&nbsp;Please attach your VI to your post and we can take a look at it.&nbsp; Another tip is to try to open and understand a DAQmx example from the NI Example Finder.&nbsp; One good example for you would be Acq&amp;Graph Voltage-Int Clk.vi&nbsp;under Hardware Input and Output &gt;&gt; DAQmx &gt;&gt; Analog Measurements.&nbsp; Just change the&nbsp;Physical...

Problem that Calling DLL with 2D array input in LabVIEW
Hello, &nbsp; I have to call a DLL which a 2D&nbsp;character array&nbsp;as an input,&nbsp;the DLL can't be changed any more because some odd reason. How can I call&nbsp;this kind of DLL&nbsp;in LabView? &nbsp; Any help shall be appreciated. Thanks, Steven &nbsp; &nbsp; Hi Steven, &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Can you post the DLL function's prototype, or even some of the code?&nbsp; Cheers. Hello, Thanks for your reply. &nbsp; The definition of one function(get the&nbsp;QTY of the loading box currently using and its ID) Int&nbsp;&nbsp;binResLists (char *ids[ID_LENGTH + 1], int maxNum) output:&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; char *ids[ID_LENGTH + 1]&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;// a array used for store the ID read back. Input:&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; int maxNum&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;//&nbsp;&nbsp;specify the maxmum loading box. how many loading box using will be returned after cal...
