3. Configure the Task

After you create a task, you can configure channel-specific settings such as custom scaling, input range, and terminal configuration. You also can configure task-specific settings such as timing and triggering.

To configure the voltage measurement task, complete the following steps.

  1. Specify the input range. You can use the default values.
  2. Select the terminal configuration you used to connect the signal.

  3. Under Timing Settings, select N Samples as the Acquisition Mode. Enter 100.00 for Samples To Read, and enter 1000.00 for Rate (Hz), as shown in the following figure.

Note  This example does not use custom scaling or triggering. To learn about scaling and triggering, refer to the NI-DAQmx Help.
