  1. One thing you can do is make a copy of labview.exe and invoke that one with your new command line arguments. That way it doesn't matter if you have LabVIEW running or not. This will have the overhead of LabVIEW starting up each time, however.
  2. The reason it using so much CPU is because it is restarting the HW and then doing a busy wait while waiting for the point to be available from the hardware. Instead of starting from Measure AC Voltage, I started from Cont Acq & Chart Multiple Samples. This will only start the device once (niDMM Initiate) and then uses niDMM Fetch Multi Point to get the points from the device. What I added was niDMM Read Status in the loop. If there is no point available (backlog == 0), wait a few ms. If there is a point, go fetch it.
  3. QUOTE (ejensen @ Mar 19 2009, 09:25 AM) You will need additional hardware in order to synchronize your two DMMs. The DMMs cannot generate a pulse you would need in order to do this. If it is another PXI device (CTR/Timer or MIO, etc.) you can route the pulses onto the backplane in which case the Trigger Source would be TTL0 - TTL7. If it is not a PXI device, you can use the front connector for the Trigger Source. I don't have NI-DMM installed but I believe the front connector terminal would be something like TrigIn. If you are doing multipoint and want ALL points to be triggered, you will also need to set the Sample Trigger Source to the same terminal. If you have any other questions, I can try to answer them. Good luck, Mark Ex NI-DMM Software Developer
  4. QUOTE (jdunham @ Mar 6 2009, 03:11 PM) All of our Modular Instruments come with Soft Front Panels for interactive use. Specifically, if you are replacing an oscilloscope with one of our high speed digitizers, there is a NI-Scope Soft Front Panel that would probably do everything you might need to do. If you want to check out the capabilities of our SFP, you could download and install the latest NI-Scope, create a simulated high speed digitizer in MAX and then run the SFP from the start menu. This doesn't answer your question directly about Signal Express, but hopefully helps anyway. Mark Silva
  5. Hello, NI-ModInst is what you should use to enumerate any of the Modular Instruments. The problem you're seeing may be due to the fact that it is fairly new, and depending on what versions of the drivers you have installed, the needed files weren't there. I believe NI-Scope was the first instrument driver to install NI-ModInst. I'm not sure when NI-FGEN added support but I know NI-DMM only added it in NI-DMM 2.4. 2.4 was released earlier this year so you'd need either NI-DMM 2.4 or NI-DMM 2.5 to be able to use NI-ModInst for DMM's. The latest NI-FGEN should work for your ARB. Mark NI DMM Software
