I looked into the ag LabVIEW is an industry-standard graphical programming environment that can be used to quickly and easily acquire, analyze, and present data from the A. The Agilent B AC power sources are pretty commonly used so I find it surprising that someone else hasn’t come across this issue. I’ve tried in both LabView and LabWindows and neither will work. Each routine corresponds to a programmatic operation such as configuring, reading from, writing to, and triggering the instrument. In Figure 3, we show the block diagram of a sample application created with these VIs. The termination is not required with GPIB.

Then, with the example running, the user can toggle any LED in the array to open or close a matrix cross point on the A module. And have you tried setting the termination property in MAX? Generally, you need to call the Close VI agilejt once at the end of an application or when you finish communication with an instrument.

Using the Agilent A with LabVIEW – National Instruments

Most instrument drivers have menu palettes that include the following components. The Configuration VIs- a collection of software routines that configure the instrument to perform the operation you want. Instrument drivers simplify instrument control and reduce test program development time by eliminating the need to learn the programming protocol for each instrument. Two instrument driver palettes are shown below, agllent Figure 2.


Message 2 of It only applies the property while I’m using the test panel. The Close VI- terminates the software connection to the instrument and frees system resources.

Unlike other programming environments, all programming in LabVIEW is labciew graphically through intuitive flowchart-style coding and functional blocks. Message 5 of Generally, you need to call the Initialize VI only once at the beginning of an application.

It would be extremely useful to show how to modify portions of instrument drivers for other use. In the following figure we have opened the Agilent Read Multiple Measurements. Message 7 of The NI CompactDAQ platform is an excellent hardware option to consider when adding to or creating a user-defined, PC-based data logging or bench top automated test system.

The Utility VIs might also include other custom instrument driver VIs that perform operations such as calibration or storage and recall of setups. Figure 1 shows the graphical user interface of one of the A example programs, used to control the A matrix switch module. Message 4 of This application initializes communication with the A, takes 10 voltage readings from 68133b channel in the scan list, and finally ends communication and checks for errors.

However when the voltages around 4. It needs the line feed but the IVI driver does not send the line feed. For other instrument driver types, the examples will be available from the Application Examples subpalette from the corresponding instrument driver.


The Action VIs – initiate or terminate test and measurement operations, such as arming the trigger system or generating a stimulus. Setting up the hardware to achieve these high rates, resolutions, and channel 6813v has never been easier or quicker.

From the block diagram you can see that the instrument is first initialized with the Serial Configuration and VISA resource name specified on the front panel. I just have to get it to work and rebuild the DLL.

This example shows how to configure a measurement and take multiple readings. Message 1 of Auto-suggest helps you quickly narrow down your search results by suggesting possible matches as you type.

Numerous Configuration VIs can exist, depending on the particular instrument. Since peak detection is one of the analysis functions available in LabVIEW, we can easily add that functionality to our 683b. LabVIEW itself is a graphical development environment for creating flexible and scalable test, measurement, and control applications rapidly and at minimal cost.

Message 9 of I looked into the ag Back to Top 2.
