I have a need to generate a one-shot pulse train of a settable numer of pulses. I also need to be able to vary the duty cycle of the pulse train, but not withing any one sequence.
The problem is that I need to trigger the occurrence of the pulse train with an input signal that is timing critical and cannot involve the host computer or the delays over USB. Once set up, I need the input to trigger the output by itself until told to stop
Is this possible with the U3, or any of the other models? I am a bit confused with DAQFactory and the other software capabilities as to whether I can just set a few parameters via the computer interface (#pulses, duty cycle, etc.) and then just let the labjack operate on it's own, syncing tne output pulses with the one input trigger.
Any help appreciated!
