Output: DevString
This command gets the device status (stored in its device_status data member) and returns it to the caller.
StartInput: DevVoid
Output: DevVoid
Start acquisition.
StopInput: DevVoid
Output: DevVoid
Stop acquisition.
CalibrateInput: DevVoid
Output: DevVoid
Calibrate hardware.
ResetInput: DevVoid
Output: DevVoid
Resets all channels data.



Name Description
BoardTypeDevShort The board type ( the possible values are SAI_2005, SAI_2010).
BoardNumDevShort The number of the board in the cPCI chassis (between 0 and 7).
InputRange0DevShort The input range for channel 0 ( possible values are B_10, B_5, B_2_5, B_1_25, U_10, U_5, U_2_5, U_1_25 ).
InputRange1DevShort The input range for channel 1 ( possible values are B_10, B_5, B_2_5, B_1_25, U_10, U_5, U_2_5, U_1_25 ).
InputRange2DevShort The input range for channel 2 ( possible values are B_10, B_5, B_2_5, B_1_25, U_10, U_5, U_2_5, U_1_25 ).
InputRange3DevShort The input range for channel 3 ( possible values are B_10, B_5, B_2_5, B_1_25, U_10, U_5, U_2_5, U_1_25 ).
TimeoutDevDouble The time to wait for incoming data before generating a timout. In seconds.
TriggerModeDevShort The trigger mode. Can be a POST trigger and data is acquired just after the received trigger. Can be a DELAY trigger and data is acquired after a certain delay.
TriggerSourceDevShort To choose analog (ATRIG) or digital trigger(DTRIG).
ATRIGSelectionDevShort To select the type of analog trigger. The trigger can be generated when the analog trigger passes below a level or above a level. The possible values are BELOWand ABOVE.
ATRIGLevelDevDouble The level of the analog trigger in volts.
DTRIGPolarityDevShort The digital level polarity. It can be detected on rising edge or falling edge. The possible values are RISING or FALLING.
DelayDevDouble The delay after a Delay trigger in seconds.
ConversionSourceDevShort Set the AI conversion signal source (i.e. DAC sampling source). Use one of the following: INTERNAL, EXTSAMPLING.
AutoStartDevBoolean Start the acquisition when starting the device.
ContinuousAcquisitionDevBoolean Allows the acquisition to run indefinitely.
MemorizedGenerateNexusFileDevBoolean Allows storage of acquired data into Nexus files.
MemorizedNexusFilePathDevString Contains the last value of the nexusFilePath attribute. [default value =d:\\target]
