- class nidaqmx._task_modules.channels.di_channel.DIChannel(task_handle, virtual_or_physical_name)[source]
Represents one or more digital input virtual channels and their properties.
- property chan_type
Indicates the type of the virtual channel.
- property channel_names
Specifies the unflattened list of the virtual channels.
- property description
Specifies a user-defined description for the channel.
- property di_acquire_on
nidaqmx.constants.ActiveOrInactiveEdgeSelection: Specifies on which edge of the sample clock to acquire samples.
- property di_data_xfer_mech
nidaqmx.constants.DataTransferActiveTransferMode: Specifies the data transfer mode for the device.
- property di_data_xfer_req_cond
Specifies under what condition to transfer data from the onboard memory of the device to the buffer.
- property di_dig_fltr_enable
Specifies whether to enable the digital filter for the line(s) or port(s). You can enable the filter on a line-by- line basis. You do not have to enable the filter for all lines in a channel.
- property di_dig_fltr_enable_bus_mode
Specifies whether to enable bus mode for digital filtering. If you set this property to True, NI-DAQmx treats all lines that use common filtering settings as a bus. If any line in the bus has jitter, all lines in the bus hold state until the entire bus stabilizes, or until 2 times the minimum pulse width elapses. If you set this property to False, NI-DAQmx filters all lines individually. Jitter in one line does not affect other lines.
- property di_dig_fltr_min_pulse_width
Specifies in seconds the minimum pulse width the filter recognizes as a valid high or low state transition.
- property di_dig_fltr_timebase_rate
Specifies in hertz the rate of the digital filter timebase. NI-DAQmx uses this value to compute settings for the filter.
- property di_dig_fltr_timebase_src
Specifies the terminal of the signal to use as the timebase of the digital filter.
- property di_dig_sync_enable
Specifies whether to synchronize recognition of transitions in the signal to the internal timebase of the device.
- property di_invert_lines
Specifies whether to invert the lines in the channel. If you set this property to True, the lines are at high logic when off and at low logic when on.
- property di_logic_family
Specifies the logic family to use for acquisition. A logic family corresponds to voltage thresholds that are compatible with a group of voltage standards. Refer to the device documentation for information on the logic high and logic low voltages for these logic families.
- property di_mem_map_enable
Specifies for NI-DAQmx to map hardware registers to the memory space of the application, if possible. Normally, NI- DAQmx maps hardware registers to memory accessible only to the kernel. Mapping the registers to the memory space of the application increases performance. However, if the application accesses the memory space mapped to the registers, it can adversely affect the operation of the device and possibly result in a system crash.
- property di_num_lines
Indicates the number of digital lines in the channel.
- property di_tristate
Specifies whether to tristate the lines in the channel. If you set this property to True, NI-DAQmx tristates the lines in the channel. If you set this property to False, NI-DAQmx does not modify the configuration of the lines even if the lines were previously tristated. Set this property to False to read lines in other tasks or to read output-only lines.
- property di_usb_xfer_req_count
Specifies the maximum number of simultaneous USB transfers used to stream data. Modify this value to affect performance under different combinations of operating system and device.
- property di_usb_xfer_req_size
Specifies the maximum size of a USB transfer request in bytes. Modify this value to affect performance under different combinations of operating system and device.
- property is_global
Indicates whether the channel is a global channel.
- property name
Specifies the name of the virtual channel this object represents.
- property physical_channel
nidaqmx.system.physical_channel.PhysicalChannel: Specifies the name of the physical channel upon which this virtual channel is based.
- save(save_as='', author='', overwrite_existing_channel=False, allow_interactive_editing=True, allow_interactive_deletion=True)
Saves this local or global channel to MAX as a global channel.
save_as (Optional[str]) – Is the name to save the task, global channel, or custom scale as. If you do not specify a value for this input, NI-DAQmx uses the name currently assigned to the task, global channel, or custom scale.
author (Optional[str]) – Is a name to store with the task, global channel, or custom scale.
overwrite_existing_channel (Optional[bool]) – Specifies whether to overwrite a global channel of the same name if one is already saved in MAX. If this input is False and a global channel of the same name is already saved in MAX, this function returns an error.
allow_interactive_editing (Optional[bool]) – Specifies whether to allow the task, global channel, or custom scale to be edited in the DAQ Assistant. If allow_interactive_editing is True, the DAQ Assistant must support all task or global channel settings.
allow_interactive_deletion (Optional[bool]) – Specifies whether to allow the task, global channel, or custom scale to be deleted through MAX.
- property sync_unlock_behavior
Specifies the action to take if the target loses its synchronization to the grand master.
