LabVIEW instrument drivers simplify instrument control and reduce test program development time by eliminating the need for you to learn the complex, low-level programming commands for each instrument. Each routine that composes the driver corresponds to a programmatic operation such as configuring, reading from, writing to, or triggering the instrument. Six such ready-to-run examples are provided by National Instruments in the driver. The Initialize VI- the first instrument driver VI you call, establishes communication with the instrument. Message 4 of 9. Request a Calibration Quote. The Configuration VIs- a collection of software routines that configure the instrument to perform the operation you want.

The drivers for the original card may still be installed which may fool MAX into believing that there is another card with the same address. Would you like this wgilent calibrated? The most straightforward way to take advantage of the LabVIEW instrument driver is to run the example programs, which require only labvies user configuration.
That fixed the problem. Instead of telling me how to use the agilent tool which I have oneit explains why I should buy something else. Is it an NI gpib board?
Additionally, it can perform any 6162c actions to place the instrument in its default power on state or in another specific state.
After you call these VIs, the instrument is ready to take measurements or to stimulate a system. LabVIEW instrument drivers simplify instrument control and reduce test program development time by eliminating the need for you to learn the complex, low-level programming commands for each instrument. Two instrument driver palettes are shown below, in Figure 2.
The single output, W GPIB CC provide small, compact size for bench and system use; fast, low-noise outputs; and dual-range, precision low current measurement.
The following figure shows this palette and some of the VIs and subpalettes that are shipped with it.
Instrument drivers simplify control and reduce test program development time by eliminating the need to learn the unique programming and communication protocol for the instrument.
Each palette represents a distinct category of instrument driver functions for programming the A.
A significant advantage of customizing your LabVIEW application is that it enables you to combine the unique functions of the instrument driver with the standard functions built-in to LabVIEW.
An instrument driver is a set of software routines that control a programmable instrument. LabVIEW can also be used to interface with a data management system, whether that consists of a simple spreadsheet file or a relational database.
Using the Agilent A with LabVIEW – National Instruments
Back to Top agilet. These VIs include the majority of the instrument driver template VIs, such as reset, self-test, revision, error query, and error message.
To run this example, the user first sets the GPIB or serial communication parameters. The Utility VIs might also include other custom instrument driver VIs that perform operations such as calibration or storage and recall of setups. Finally, the Simple Error Handler is called which indicates whether an error occurred. LabVIEW itself is a graphical development environment for creating flexible and scalable test, measurement, and control applications rapidly and at minimal cost.
How to Use an Instrument Driver in LabVIEW Tutorial
Figure 1 shows the graphical user interface of one of the A example programs, used to control the A matrix switch module.
I’d tried to connect my tektronix tds to my computer via kabview and get the error code: This application initializes communication with the A, takes 10 voltage readings from each channel in the scan list, and finally ends communication and checks for errors. How do I delete it? Message 6 of 9. 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. I have the same problem with this error.
Because creating crisp graphical user interfaces in LabVIEW is easy, we could have also chosen to visualize the data in a chart or graph. If that is so, then go into the control panel and remove the hardware element. I use counter HP A to continuous count frequency to the laptop. If you go to ni. Atilent include VIs for reading a measured value or waveform and VIs for downloading waveforms or digital patterns to a source instrument.
