8. Device recognition with serial numbers

The Serials Example in serials.vi shows how to:

  • Retrieve the serial number of a device
  • Retrieve the model name of a device
  • Open a device based on the serial number and model name

Usage: Select a device from the device list box. You will see the device's model name and, if present, the device's serial number in the two text fields next to the list box.

So that you can differentiate between two or more devices of the same time, the model name is the "real" name of the device without trailing numbers. With this name and the serial number, it is possible to identify a device even after devices of the same type have been removed from the system or after a reboot.
