7037-D Card with 7001 Mainframe

Post by supadhyay » July 1st, 2011, 7:30 pm

We are using a 7037-D single pole relay and digital I/O card for both switching and reading digital lines through signals DIG IN 1..10. We are using labview driver to control the relay channels, which works great. The problem is reading the digital lines. How to read the digital lines? The 7001 switch puts out a matrix on the display. But, when we connect a 5V to the DIG IN 1 line, nothing happens on the display. When I scan the channel, I don't see anything happening.

I couldn't find anywhere, how to read the digital lines through 7001 GPIB commands.

Below is a link to the 7037 User Manual. Section 5 deals with operation and can explain in more detail than I can. Specifically, I would estimate the main part of what you're looking for would be on page 39-40 of the PDF. Hope this helps.
