    DASYLab Usage

    Usage

    When first starting DASYLab, you should see LabJack.DLL loaded in the console window if the driver was loaded properly.

    Any visible device hardware can be configured by navigating to: Measurement >> Hardware Setup >> LabJack >> LJM.

    Configurations will be saved to INI files under C:\Users\Public\Documents\DASYLab\15.1.0\eng\devices\LABJACK-LJM-TASK. The 15.1.0 folder should correspond to the DASYLab version. When exporting a circuit diagram to a new computer, the associated INI configuration files should be exported as well. The name of a task holds the following information:

    • T4 or T7
    • Serial number
    • USB / Ethernet
    • Type AI, AO, DI, DO
    • For AO and DO there are also tasks that specifically take over a job when the measurement is stopped. These also have the name of the hardware line.

    Device IO can be controlled using modules. LabJack modules are found under: Modules >> Inputs / Outputs >> LabJack >> DAQ.

    To modify acquisition rates and other measurement details, navigate to: Measurement >> Measurement Setup >> LabJack >> DAQ Measurement Setup.
