In this example, serial communication is used. The Status VIs obtain the current status of the instrument or the status of pending operations. I download directly from Agilent’s website. I opened the code to try to trouble shoot. Feel free to write us at les. The current version is 4. I am using the Agilent A to measure DC current, using the default example.

Les Hammer Complete Test. A successful validation does NOT mean anything except the port itself works. I am certain the serial port works I am using a serial to USB converter.
The Status VIs obtain the current status of the instrument or the status of pending operations. Concerning the proper configuration of the instrument, information may be available in your user manual or from th e manufacturer. An instrument driver is a set of software routines that control a programmable instrument. Thank you for help! I hope not to offend NI people http: Most instrument drivers have menu palettes that include the following components. I don’t know which driver you are using, labbiew it is difficult to send you an example.

The Initialize VI- the first instrument driver VI you call, establishes communication with the instrument. See this KnowedgeBase labvied more information.
Hello, I was wondering if this issue was resolved. Message 1 of 4. Once an instrument driver has been downloaded, the instrument driver VIs will be located on the Instrument Drivers palette.

The Utility VIs might also include other custom instrument driver VIs that perform operations such as calibration or storage and recall of setups. Make sure that for each successful call to the Initialize VI, you use a matching Close VI to avoid maintaining unnecessary memory resources.
The Data VIs- transfer data to or from the instrument. 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.
Does anyone have advice on how to log the samples at recieved from the multimeter in relative time, continiously for defined period of time. Instrument Driver Organization Once an instrument driver has been downloaded, the instrument driver VIs will be located on the Instrument Drivers palette.

The problem seems to be in the initialize sub vi. Any tips would be useful. I get ailent error windows with the values the multimeter has acquired, I think. There are many other triggers that can be used to stop the acquisisiton time after acquisition started, X of data points, etc.
For other instrument driver types, the examples will be available from the Application Examples subpalette from the corresponding instrument driver.
Message 3 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.
Message 4 of 4. I download directly from Agilent’s website.
Works like a charm. What version of the instrument driver are you using? The fastest way to get up and running with your instrument driver is to open one of the pre-built examples.
