Hello, I am using more than one DT9812 at the same time and I would like to be able to identify witch module is what. Is it possible to set a name or a specific ID /serial that can be used for that ? I would like that the number or name is stored inside the DT9812 that I can detect it even if I change the computer.

Each Data Translation module contains a unique board ID, which can be found in Windows’ (legacy) Control Panel via the Open Layers Control Panel applet. A user can also determine the module’s board ID when developing a custom application with Data Translation’s OpenLayers for .NET (use the GetHardwareInfo method to retrieve the device’s BoardID). Note that while the BoardID is unique, it does not correlate to the S/N labeled on module. The BoardID does seem well suited to your stated need, as it will travel with the module to another computer.
For sake of completeness, while not suitable for your stated need, the following info on DeviceName is provided: When a Data Translation module is connected to a Windows system, the module is assigned a ‘DT-Open Layer Name’ that can be found in Windows’ (legacy) Control Panel via the Open Layers Control Panel applet. The first DT9812-10V module connected will be assigned ‘DT9812(00)’. Additional modules of the same model will have an incremented name, i.e. ‘DT9812(01)’ for the second module. A user can also determine the module’s name when developing a custom application with Data Translation’s OpenLayers for .NET (use the Device class to retrieve the ‘DeviceName’ property). Note, if the DT9812-10V module is disconnected and then connected to a different system, the module’s assigned name will then depend on what order the module was connected to the system and whether or not the module was previously connected to the system. Information for each module’s connection is retained in the system’s Registry (as is the device’s BoardID). Lastly, in the DT9812 Series User’s Manual, the ‘Changing the Name of a Module’ section of chapter 2 discusses how to access the Open Layers Control Panel applet and how to edit the board’s name.
