Use shared triggers and clocks to synchronize data between:
Multiple subsystems in a device (analog input, analog output, counter input, etc.)
Multiple CompactDAQ or PXI chassis
Counter output channels run independently and are unaffected by synchronization connections.
To achieve perfect synchronization, you must share both a trigger and a clock between your devices.
You can share trigger and clock connections to synchronize operations within a session. Synchronization connections can be:
Devices in a session connected to a trigger or clock source on another device in the session
Devices and chassis in a session connected to a trigger or clock source on another device in the session
