Most Active Software Boards: Instrument Driver Organization Once an instrument driver has been downloaded, the instrument driver VIs will be located on the Instrument Drivers palette. Post as a guest Name. You also can use the Instrument Driver Finder to open example programs covering everything from analysis and presentation to using your instrument driver. The Configuration VIs- a collection of software routines that configure the instrument to perform the operation you want.

Can somebody help me with the code. Email Required, but never shown. The function 344401a mentioned does exactly the same thing except you don’t have to do that goofy parsing of the address. Action VIs are different from Configuration VIs because they do not change the instrument settings but order the instrument to carry out an action based on its current configuration.

An instrument driver is a set of software routines that control a programmable instrument.

Numerous Configuration VIs can exist, depending on the particular instrument. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to find a way to achieve this.

Instrument Control (GPIB, Serial, VISA, IVI)

I actually needed the opposite – enable Local instead of enable Remote. Message 2 of 4.

The fastest way to get up and running with your instrument driver is to open one of the pre-built examples. I wish to plot IV, CV curve characteristics of a diode. As a tip I think there are some labview examples for acquiring and plotting IV curves.


Alternatively, is there a labvifw to get the A to continuously display whatever measurement it’s taking while in remote mode?

Regarding your question just coding your own program using GPIB. Les Hammer Complete Test. Try the link below: For other instrument driver types, the examples will be available from the Application Examples subpalette from the corresponding instrument driver.

After the instrument has been configured, the Read VI is used to read multiple points. Message 6 of ph.

Message 1 of 7. These VIs include the majority of the instrument driver template VIs, such as reset, self-test, revision, error query, and error message. It’s a VISA function and you should have just used the search button to find it and turned on Context Help to get the explanation of what it does.

I pabview not to offend NI people http: Agilent A time log RS Thanks for the tip! Each routine corresponds to 344401a programmatic operation such as configuring, reading from, writing to, and triggering the instrument. If you are not very concerned with high speed aka you can wait for the data to be written to diskyou can just add the “Write to delimited Spreadsheet” to the while loop.


This tool searches IDNet to find the specified instrument driver.

Many instrument drivers have a VI Tree VI you can use to view the entire instrument driver hierarchy. Stack Overflow works best with JavaScript enabled. It has been busy for me for the past weeks, but here is the output. Once an instrument driver has been downloaded, the instrument driver VIs will be located on the Instrument Drivers palette.

Examples include VIs for reading a measured value or waveform and VIs for downloading waveforms or digital patterns to a source instrument. The Close VI- terminates the software connection to the instrument and frees system resources.

If I have everything connected, the A will immediately be placed labvifw “Remote” mode when I run my software. I found the function you suggested and it’s indeed a more elegant solution.
