eReadNameArray [LJM User's Guide]

Read consecutive device registers, with the starting register specified by a name.


int Handle,
const char * Name,
int NumValues,
double * aValues,
int * ErrorAddress)


Handle [in]

A device handle. The handle is a connection ID for an active device. Generate a handle with LJM_Open or LJM_OpenS.

Name [in]

The name that specifies the Modbus register(s) to read.  Names can be found throughout the device datasheet or in the Modbus Map.

NumValues [in]

The number of consecutive values to read.

aValues [out]

An array of values to be transferred from the device. The array size should be equal to NumValues. Each value will be converted according to the type of Name.

ErrorAddress [out]

If error, the address responsible for causing an error.


LJM errorcodes or 0 for no error.


The Address version of this function is LJM_eReadAddressArray.

If NumValues is large enough, these functions will automatically split reads into multiple packets based on the current device's effective data packet size. Using both non-buffer and buffer registers in one function call is not supported.


Read analog inputs 0 through 7

int LJMError;
int errorAddress;
double newValues[8];

// handle comes from LJM_Open()
LJMError = LJM_eReadNameArray(handle, "AIN0", 8, newValues, &errorAddress);
if (LJMError != LJME_NOERROR) {
    // Deal with error
