Message 4 of 6. Message 2 of 6. Supported programs and solutions you can get from the internet are quite often better than if you try to write it your self. Message 2 of 7. Yes you can do this, but in principle you are writing your own driver.

Supported programs and solutions you can get from the internet are quite often better than if you try to write it your self. Additionally, it can perform any necessary actions to place up instrument in its default power on state or in another specific state.

This site uses cookies to offer you a better browsing experience. The Initialize VI- the first instrument driver VI you call, establishes communication with the instrument. Generally, you need to call the Initialize VI only once at the beginning of an application. NI supplies the drivers here: Generally, you need to call the Close VI only once at the end of an application or when you finish communication with an instrument. Usually this is unnecessary 34401a time consuming and 344011a are better of using the supplied Labview drivers.

Sign up using Facebook. You can create instrument control applications and systems by programmatically linking instrument driver VIs on the block diagram.


The alternative to using the NI Instrument Driver Finder is to go directly to the Instrument Driver Network and search for your instrument driver there. In this example, serial communication is used.

34410A, 34411A Digital Multimeter LabVIEW Instrument Drivers

Message labbview of 7. You also can use the Instrument Driver Finder to open example programs covering everything from analysis and presentation to using your instrument driver. I download directly from Agilent’s website.

I labvoew know which driver you are using, so it is difficult to send you an example. The Action VIs – initiate or terminate test and measurement operations, such as arming the trigger system or generating a stimulus.

Once an instrument driver has been downloaded, the instrument driver VIs will be located on the Instrument Drivers palette.

You can use an instrument driver for a particular instrument as is. Message 2 of 4. 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. Learn more about our privacy policy.

There are many other triggers that can be used to stop the acquisisiton time after acquisition started, X of data points, etc.

They also have a CVI driver that can be converted. Message 3 of 6.

Using LabVIEW driver for Agilent A – Discussion Forums – National Instruments

In the following figure we have opened the Agilent Read Multiple Measurements. Then the Configure Measurement VI is called to set the instrument up for the desired measurement. The drivers will often have examples included as well. I just downloaded the file again and followed the steps I described earlier. The Utility VIs- perform a variety of operations that are auxiliary to the most often used instrument driver VIs.


Don’t be afraid of experimenting.

Labview (Connected to instruments via PCI-GPIB ) to Study Diode Characteristics – Stack Overflow

Many thanks for the help. No offense was taken.

Unfortunately I haven’t been able to find h way to achieve this. 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. 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.

Also think what your main goals labvies for your programming, presumably making IV measurements and not writing drivers.
