Soon, you’ll combine them into your own vi and you’ll prefer using the multimeter through Labview rather than pressing the buttons. Sign up using Facebook. Thank you for help! Learn more about our privacy policy. You can use an instrument driver for a particular instrument as is.

Most Active Software Boards: Does anyone have advice on how to log the samples at recieved from the multimeter in relative time, continiously for defined period of time.

Email Required, but never shown. I get an error windows with the values the multimeter has acquired, I think. Don’t be afraid of experimenting. Message 3 of 7.

How to Use an Instrument Driver in LabVIEW Tutorial

Open a blank vi. You also can use the Instrument Driver Finder to open example programs covering everything from analysis and 34401q to using your instrument driver. Message 2 of 6. The Configuration VIs- a collection of software routines that configure the instrument to perform the operation you want.

There are many other triggers that can be used to stop the acquisisiton time after acquisition started, X of data points, etc. This site uses cookies to offer you a better browsing experience. Once the measurement is complete, the Close VI is labveiw which performs an instrument error query and terminates the software connection to the instrument.


If hpp want something really want to write your own driver for something special for speed or something else it is easiest and fastest to just copy paste the parts you need from the actual driver.

Instrument Control (GPIB, Serial, VISA, IVI)

Look at what you are measuring and see if it is useful. Sign up using Email and Password.

Instrument labiew simplify instrument control and reduce test program development time by eliminating the need to learn the programming protocol for each instrument. In the following figure we have opened the Agilent Read Multiple Measurements. Stack Overflow works best with JavaScript enabled.

Finally, the Simple Error Handler is called which indicates whether an error occurred.

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

Many thanks for the help. The Data VIs- transfer data to or from the instrument. It is a nice icon with red lettering and a tiny picture of the multimeter.


Each routine corresponds to a programmatic operation such as configuring, reading from, writing to, and triggering the instrument.

Labvies can create instrument control applications and systems by programmatically linking instrument driver VIs on the block diagram. Post as a guest Name.

Enabling autozero optimizes the instrument for accuracy, while disabling optimizes for speed. Each VI corresponds to a programmatic operation, such as configuring, reading from, writing to, and triggering an instrument.

Les Hammer Complete Test.

I download directly from Agilent’s website. Works like a charm. Your on your way to success Hope this helps.

Thank you for help! From the block diagram you can see that the instrument is first initialized with the Serial Configuration and VISA resource name specified on the front panel. The Status VIs obtain the current status of the instrument or the status of pending operations.
