is this possible in labview 8.2 and the usb daq 6009?
I am wondering if what i am going to do is possible using the usb daq 6009. The aplication is as follows. I need to place a DAQ assistant to run continously in a while loop. Keep it aquiring data and when the signal is above or below a threshold (upper or lower noise levels) to fill an array until the signal goes back to the noise level. When the array has been written with n number of data it should calculate the max min and standard deviation.
I have 4 analog inputs by the way, voltage inputs. the time that takes an object to pass through the sensors is aproximately 2 ms. Is this too fast? I can see the signal when the object passes in the Test window in the DAQ assistant.
I have tried to use the DAQ assistant but it appears that it doesnt have enough time to read the signal, build the array and calculate the statistics it should. So then I created a task from the Measurement and Automation aplication, that consisted of Voltage signals, 500 samples and 1khz. Am i in the right path. I'll upload the VI later. Thanks in advance!
If you think, that my answers are already answered, could you, paste the link in your response please? Thanks!
I created a VI and followed your tips. I can read the signals and see the graph when a seed passes trough the sensors. The thing is that i can catch the max and min values but the standard deviation is affected because the VI ca...USB joystick and NI USB 6009

I would be more than happy to help you with your program. However, it is unclear what the problem is that you are encountering. As I do not have a joystick, I cannot test the VI that you have attached. Is there a specific problem or error with this VI, or are you simply seeking advice on how to improve it?
What exactly are you attempting to accomplish with this VI? I looked at the block diagram but I do not understand what your end goal is. Are you attempting to read the data from the joystick and output it to the USB-6009? If this is indeed the case, it seems as though you would want to connect the data that you acquire with the joystick Acquire Input Data VI to the data input of the DAQmx Write VI. Also, it seems that you would want the DAQmx VIs inside of your While Loop so that you are continuously reading the joystick data and updating the output of the 6009.
I look forward to hearing back from you with more details about your specific application.

Anyway I'm using Labview 7 express and USB - 6009.
I quite simply want to record and view a voltage signal and a current signal.
I have managed to get the

logged at say once per minute?
On my front panel the
graphical display I have for both signals refused to display the line graph
and I have toggled every switch and restarted etc but for some reason but
signals will change but the graph will not move along the time axis.
on the front panel I want
to display both of my channels inputs i.e. voltage and current in a

...How do I update a program written for a Legacy DAQ into one for a USB DAQ?
I am trying to rewrite a program, replacing all of the AI Waveform Scan and AO Update Channel VIs in it with DAQmx VIs. This seems to be the only way for the USB DAQ to respond to the program and not get any errors. I was just hoping for some help in how to replace those VIs with updated DAQmx ones. Attached is the part of the program that I am working on. There is a slight error because of some changes I have made, but the gist of the program is still there. Thanks!!
What I would suggest is that in either your init state or outside the loop, create two separate tasks for the analog in and the analog out. This means using separate DAQmx Create Channel, DAQmx Timing, DAQmx Start Task, etc. Then, you would have the tasks in your shift registers and pass just the appropriate task to either a DAQmx Write or DAQmx Read. No need to pass channel or device. In the End state, you would add a DAQmx Clear Task for each.
Thanks so much! I am super new at labview so it was all a bit confusing for me, especially since I have never dealt with the earlier labview VIs so I wasn't sure what they did exactly. I shoud be able to get it to work now :)
...NI USB-6008 DAQ question
I have run into a bit of a problem, or at least I think its a problem. I am using a USB-6008 Daq and LabVIEW 8 fyi.
I am building a program which will output a voltage for a set amount of time, and then no output for a set amount of time, and then output again, so on and so forth. Is the "while loop" with a "Wait until next ms" combo the best route to go for this?
With the current setup, I am using an external multimeter to measure the current/voltage during these times. However, it seems as if the current/voltage never shut off. Am I perhaps doing something wrong?
Thanks in advance!
p.s. I have attached a picture of what I am working with so far.
Look at your program again. It is working just as you wrote it. You want the output to go to zero, but where in the program do you tell the output to go to zero?
As a test make a boolean LED turn on and off. Then it is the same principle for your output signal.
Here is an example I just made that should help you out.

I've narrowed the problem down to this simple attached VI. Usually when I boot up my pc (same problem on another pc) and run my LV program, there is no com with the DAQ. However if I remove the USB cable & plug it back in, it SOMETIMES starts working. I then worked solely with MAX. After booting up with the DAQ USB cable connected, MAX recognizes the DAQ, says it tests ok, but when I run the Test Panel and tell a specific output to go low, it doesn't, and no error message. I tried closing the test panel & doing initialize, then going back to test panel, & still no response from the DAQ. Then if I unplug the USB cable & plug it back in, I get the 'New Acquisition Dev', I click Cancel, and NOW I can use the test panel to talk to the DAQ. The LV program responds the same way.

What I've done so far is create to routines for logging the measurements, one which logs based upon for loop iterations, which are controlled by measurement frequency (therefore indirect timing), and is controlled by DAQmx tasks, and one which uses a timed loop and a DAQ assistant. My problem with this approach is that I cannot run both of the routines at once... and of course that they use two separate plots.

Do USB mouses and USB keyboards just plug into a 800MHz 12in iBook?
(You'll see elsewhere I'm looking for a .pdf manual so I will then know
what the various "plug-holes" - ports? - are for.)
I've just got this machine and find the trackpad fiddly, similarly for
the keyboard, so I was going to plug in the keyboard and mouse to
overcome these concerns.
Can I plug in a pair of speakers (again are USB speakers universal to
Mac and PC)?
