Counter - Read Pulse Width and Frequency (On Demand)

Created on: Nov 9, 2012 4:09 PM by Patrick_NI - Last Modified:  Nov 9, 2012 4:20 PM by Patrick_NI



This example demonstrates how to measure period, frequency, pulse width, and two edge separation.


This example does not use buffering.  Since the initiation of the measurement comes from software, it is possible to not acquire every single period of your input signal.  To ensure acquisition of every period of your input, you should use Implicit Timing (refer to the other counter input examples).


For instructions on how to connect your signals to the DAQ device, refer to your device documentation.
