  1. Hi, I am trying to display 2 different values from the same input in DF. Using 2 different channels, one of them has the built in 'Conversion: Thermocouple' selected and the other does not. I want to display the converted temperature reading and the raw voltage reading at the same time using the built in converter equation for the temp channel. However, when this is implemented, the channel that does not have the conversion selected is automatically converted to the temperature value. Is there a way around this that would easily let me display both values without hard-coding the conversion equation. -Using DF 5.91 with a Labjack U6-PRO and a type J Thermocouple. In picture the 2 channels in question are RAWVOLTAGE and Temperature.
  2. I'm a little new to DAQFactory and programming in general so forgive me if this is simple. I have a device with a number of thermocouple jacks for plugging in thermocouple probes, but not all of them are used for some operations. When no probe is connected, the value displayed (after the conversion is applied) is around -170,000 oC. My question is what is the easiest way to get the display to read "OPEN" or "NO TC" when no thermocouple is attached to the jack, but display the temperature as normal when there is a thermocouple connected? Is there a way to do this without having to run a sequence for every reading? Thanks for the help.
