Where does max 2.2 store its (Traditional) DAQ tasks


Wim

Recommended Posts

I had to go to a customer for a very old project of theirs.

 

They still use LV6.1 , tradiotional DAQ , ...

 

After reboot of the PC and login by another user all configured DAQ tasks were gone.

 

There is no documentation on the setup so recreating is not an option.

 

They have an old image of the PC so .... where does MAX (version 2.2) store it's DAQ tasks, scales etc ?

 

Thanks

On modern Windows the folder is something like C:\ProgramData\National Instruments\MAX\Data  Not sure where ProgramData maps in XP I think it was something like C:\Documents and Settings\User\AppData\Roaming\National Instruments\MAX\Data but you'll have to look around to see.

 

I think DAQmx settings are saved in config3.mxd, I don't remember what file the traditional DAQ is saved in but I'd bet it is in that same directory.

 

If this doesn't work is it possible to deploy that image to a temporary PC or a virtual PC, then do a MAX export, and then import it back on the new PC?

 

EDIT:  Oh here is some more information. http://digital.ni.com/public.nsf/allkb/DAD981AFEF149B458625778100775987

      LAVA users,
      We are looking for alternatives for NI DAQ devices for industrial automation. Since NI has its devices mostly focused on advanced/high speed/high precison data acquisition/processing its prices are inadequate to simple automation tasks. 
      I would also say that NI PC based daq systems are expensive if need to be distributed systems (found this but still relatively expensive cRIO required).
      Just now we need to extend our compactDAQ based system with two DIO modules. We even have free chassis slots for this, but station that needs this IOs is few meters away from PC. How easier would it be if we could use single ethernet cable..  Ofcourse we can add another small cDAQ (what we probably going to do) but this is slightly expensive solution for our customer.
      Does anyone have some experience with 3rd party solutions? Any known daq devices vendors? Standalone ethernet daq modules?

      Regards,
      Zyga

      Hi guys
      We had software for a FLIR AX5 thermal camera that worked perfectly.
      The camera started giving problems in the field and we had to replace it with a newer version with the latest firmware.
      No I can't seem to communicate with the new camera.
      MAX tells me that it's unable to get attribute.
      Error 0xBFF69011
      Anybody else had this problem and how did you solve it?
      Thanks in advance.

      Hello Everyone,
      Need some verification with daq program.
      I have one force sensor that connectd with my usb daq device. with this force sensor, unknown object is connected(hanging) and i want to find the mass of this object (F=ma) so i am taking continous sample and generate waveform graph. After the scaling, my waveform will be in Newton unit.
      my question is: if i take RMS of this waveform(1d Array data point) and divide by g (9.8 m/s2) then whatever value come is my correct mass? (F=ma).
      Thank you in advance

      hi
      i have a question in basic understanding of update rate sample rate samples per buffer and cycles per buffer.
      i have DAQ 6343 and electronic circuit. 
      i'm using AO0 for generation sine wave at these frequencies 10Hz, 100Hz, 500Hz, 1kHz, 3kHz this signal enters to electronic circuit.
      and after conversion i must to measure two outputs of this circuit by AI2 and AI3.
      from my understanding of tech spec of the daq analog output update rate is 900kS/s and analog input update rate is 500kS/s
      as i understand if i have freq = 3kHz the maximum sample rate per buffer is 300 samples
      and if i have freq = 10Hz i can generate this signal with 90000 samples per buffer?
      for analog input the formula is the same?
      that meaning of cycles per buffer?
      which sample rate of AI i need to setup to measure data fast and accurately? 
       
      thanks for answers

      I am trying to implement a simple DAQ Watchdog with single digital output but cannot find any logical way to reset the Watchdog timeout signal. One of obvious solutions is invoking DAQmx Reset Device.vi. Unfortunately, it does not work. The Watchdog goes to timeout state but the physical output signal does not turn to High.
       
      For some obscure reason (typical non-qualified guess:) I added bottom part of the code that is red-framed in the BD. The only difference between functional and non-functional code is using DAQmx Start Task.vi, that is located in “Solutionâ€-driven case structure. If Boolean control “Solution†is True, the code works; if False, it doesn’t.
       
      Please help to understand why launching conventional Digital Output task is necessary for normal functioning of the Watchdog?
       
      PS: Attempts to use clear expiration command instead of DAQmx Reset Device.vi were not successful.
       
      PSS: HW is PXIe-6358
       
      PSSS: Unfortunately, I cannot post any image here. Any image format results in "You are not allowed to use that image extension on this community" . The VI is attached.
