Example

Change Analog Channel Terminal Configuration

Change the terminal configuration of an analog input channel.

Create a session and add an analog input voltage channel.

s = daq.createSession('ni');
ch = addAnalogInputChannel(s,'dev5',0,'voltage')
ch = 

Data acquisition analog input voltage channel 'ai0' on device 'Dev5':

       Coupling: DC
 TerminalConfig: Differential
          Range: -10 to +10 Volts
           Name: ''
             ID: 'ai0'
         Device: [1x1 daq.ni.DeviceInfo]
MeasurementType: 'Voltage'

Change the TerminalConfig of the channel to SingleEnded.

ch.TerminalConfig = 'SingleEnded'
ch = 

Data acquisition analog input voltage channel 'ai0' on device 'Dev5':

       Coupling: DC
 TerminalConfig: SingleEnded
          Range: -10 to +10 Volts
           Name: ''
             ID: 'ai0'
         Device: [1x1 daq.ni.DeviceInfo]
MeasurementType: 'Voltage'
