OpNI670x Digital Out




The National InstrumentsNI6703 and NI6704 cards feature 16 voltage outputs and 8 digital I/O lines. The NI6704 card also features 16 current outputs. This block monitors the digital I/O lines and configures them as output channels.


Bus TypeSelect the bus type (PCI or PXI) of the target node in this list.
Card TypeSelect the card model in this list.
PCI indexEnter the PCI index (see definition)of the card on the PCI (or PXI) bus.
Selection of channels used in outputEnter the vector of channel numbers to be monitored by this block. The channel numbers, in the range [0-7], can be entered in any order and must appear only once in the list.
Synchronizesee definition.


At each calculation step of the model, the block outputs to the I/O lines the values calculated in the model. Three sets of input values must be specified:

resetValues that will be written to the selected I/O channels when the reset button is hit.
pauseValues that will be written to the selected I/O channels when the model is in pause mode, that is at initialization or when the pause button is hit.
runValues that will be written to the selected I/O channels at each time step.

Note: To ensure that the pause and reset values be properly written out, it is recommended to set these values in the model subsystem that contains the OpNI670x Digital Out block, and not to provide them from the console subsystem.


This block has no outputs.
