In the following figure we have opened the Agilent Read Multiple Measurements. Additionally, it can perform any necessary actions to place the instrument in its default power on state or in another specific state. We have used three voltage measurement configurations proposed by you at http: Each VI corresponds to a programmatic operation, such as configuring, reading from, writing to, and triggering an instrument. This tool searches IDNet to find the specified instrument driver.
Each routine that composes the driver corresponds to a programmatic operation such as configuring, reading from, writing to, or triggering the instrument. A list of contact information for other countries is available at http: It includes a Visual Basic include file. If you do not have internet access, the drivers can be obtained by contacting your country support organization. Sample code created with instrument driver functions. The block diagram in Figure 4 extends the functionality of our previously created code to discover the peaks of the dataset and then log those values to a tab-delimited text file compatible with Excel.
In Figure 3, we show the block diagram of a sample application created agulent these VIs. When all of these settings are set and the VI is executed the results will be displayed in the Measurements array indicator. User interface for A Matrix Switch Example. With these, you can quickly and easily take your application far beyond merely programming the instrument to create a completely user-defined solution.
Using the Agilent A with LabVIEW – National Instruments
Back to Top 2. The Initialize VI- the first instrument driver VI you call, establishes communication with the instrument. This example shows how to configure a measurement and take multiple readings. Figure 1 shows the graphical user interface of one of the A example programs, used to control the A matrix switch module.
You can create instrument control applications and systems by programmatically linking instrument driver VIs on the block diagram. Setting up the hardware to achieve these high rates, resolutions, and channel counts has never been easier or quicker.
As outlined above, using the A with a LabVIEW instrument driver creates a useful PC-based virtual instrumentation system for acquiring, analyzing, and presenting test data. After the instrument has been configured, the Read VI is used to agioent multiple points. Because creating crisp graphical user interfaces in LabVIEW is easy, we could have also chosen to visualize the data in a labvies or graph.
It is built on top of, and uses the services provided by VISA. NI CompactDAQ combines USB device detection, built-in signal conditioning, direct sensor and signal connectivity, hot-swappable modules, and automatic module configuration to make a simple, complete, cost-effective data acquisition system all in one small platform.
Once the measurement is complete, the Close VI is called which performs an instrument error query and terminates the agilennt connection to the instrument.
Use the instrument driver VIs to define your custom application. LabVIEW itself is a graphical development environment for creating flexible and scalable test, measurement, and control applications rapidly and at minimal cost. Many instrument drivers have a VI Tree VI you can use to view the entire instrument driver hierarchy. Though all of these examples are intended to serve as a starting point for the creation of a custom application, they may be used without modification to immediately control the Agilent A.
Introduction to the A Instrument Driver An instrument driver is a set of software routines that control a programmable instrument.
Agilent Technologies / Keysight Technologies 3499A
This file can be found in 34999a Do not include ag 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. Please try again, only this time explain how to use Labview with the Agilent instrument. An instrument driver is a set of software routines that control a programmable instrument.
