Testing an SCXI Chassis

To test an SCXI chassis, complete the following steps:

  1. Expand Devices and Interfaces»NI-DAQmx Devices.

    If you are using a remote RT target, expand Remote Systems, find and expand your target, and expand Devices and Interfaces»NI-DAQmx Devices.

  2. Right-click the SCXI chassis you want to test. Select Test.


    Select the SCXI chassis you want to test. Click Test in the MAX toolbar.

MAX verifies your SCXI configuration by reading the module ID of each configured SCXI module and comparing it against the modules you configured. MAX notifies you if there is any discrepancy or if the SCXI communication path was not set up correctly.

Refer to your SCXI chassis and module documentation if you experience problems with your configuration.
