Hardware Alarm Conditions
NI-DAQmx Device Communications Errors
-200361 (DAQmx Read) - Onboard device memory overflow. Because of system and/or bus-bandwidth limitations, the driver could not read data from the device fast enough to keep up with the device throughput.
- Most commonly, this error is encountered when a USB PIM module is connected to a USB interface which is not USB 2.0 compatible. PIM USB devices require the high-speed USB 2.0 interface to allow measurement and control data to be shared between the PIM analyzer and the PIM controller. Slower connections will result in memory overflow errors.
