Using LabVIEW driver for Agilent A – Discussion Forums – National Instruments
I don’t know which driver you are labveiw, so it is difficult to send you an example. This tool searches IDNet to find the specified instrument driver.
You can use an instrument driver for a particular instrument as is. Finally, the Simple Error Handler is called 334401a indicates whether an error occurred. Has a 3 Application Examples and a “Getting Started” one which should get you on your way. I just downloaded the file again and followed the steps I described earlier. 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 labvied for each instrument.
These VIs include the majority of the instrument driver template VIs, such as reset, self-test, revision, error query, and error message. The Labvie VI- terminates the software connection to the instrument and frees system resources. You also can use the Instrument Driver Finder to open example programs covering everything from analysis and presentation to using your instrument driver.
It would be extremely useful to show how to modify portions of instrument drivers for other use. The Utility VIs might also include other custom instrument driver VIs that perform operations such as calibration or storage and recall of setups. I’m not sure about instructions, but if you installed the driver and opened the library, you will get sub-vi’s which have a particular application purpose. From the block diagram you can see that the instrument is first initialized with the Serial Configuration lavbiew VISA resource name specified on the front lbview.
Agilent 34401 Meter
The best way is to open the sub-vi which appears to be what you want to do and run it. The Configuration VIs- a collection of software routines that configure the instrument to perform the operation you want.
The Data VIs- transfer data to or from the instrument. Feel free to write us at les. Overview of Instrument Drivers An instrument driver is labvifw set of software routines that control a programmable instrument.
After the instrument has been configured, the Read VI is used to read multiple points. Additionally, it can perform any necessary actions to place the instrument in its default power on state or in another specific state.
However, LabVIEW Plug and Play instrument drivers are distributed with their block diagram source code, so you can customize them for a specific application. Many instrument drivers have a VI Tree VI you can use to view the entire instrument driver hierarchy.
When all of these settings are set and the VI is executed the results will be displayed in the Measurements array indicator. Each routine corresponds to a programmatic operation such as configuring, reading from, writing to, and triggering the instrument.
The alternative to using the NI 344401a Driver Finder is to go directly to the Instrument Driver Network and search for your instrument driver there. Get acquainted with sub-vi’s. Each VI corresponds to a programmatic operation, such labvisw configuring, reading from, writing to, and triggering an instrument.
Examples include VIs for reading a measured value or waveform and VIs for downloading waveforms or digital patterns to a source instrument. Back to Top 2.
