|master branch status|
|Info||Python bindings for NI Modular Instrument drivers. See GitHub for the latest source.|
The nimi-python repository generates Python bindings (Application Programming Interface) for interacting with the Modular Instrument drivers. The following drivers are supported:
- NI-DCPower (Python module: nidcpower)
- NI-Digital Pattern Driver (Python module: nidigital)
- NI-DMM (Python module: nidmm)
- NI-FGEN (Python module: nifgen)
- NI-ModInst (Python module: nimodinst)
- NI-SCOPE (Python module: niscope)
- NI Switch Executive (Python module: nise)
- NI-SWITCH (Python module: niswitch)

As a prerequisite to using the nidmm module, you must install the NI-DMM runtime on your system. Visit ni.com/downloads to download the driver runtime for your devices.
The nimi-python modules (i.e. for NI-DMM) can be installed with pip:
$ python -m pip install nidmm~=1.3.2
Or easy_install from setuptools:
$ python -m easy_install nidmm
We welcome contributions! You can clone the project repository, build it, and install it by following these instructions.
The following is a basic example of using the nidmm module to open a session to a DMM and perform a 5.5 digits of resolution voltage measurement in the 10 V range.
import nidmm with nidmm.Session("Dev1") as session: session.configureMeasurementDigits(nidmm.Function.DC_VOLTS, 10, 5.5) print("Measurement: " + str(session.read()))
Additional examples for NI-DMM are located in src/nidmm/examples/ directory.
