A significant advantage of customizing your LabVIEW application is that it enables you to combine the unique functions of the instrument driver with the standard functions built-in to LabVIEW. An instrument driver is a set of software routines that control a programmable instrument. The Configuration VIs- a collection of software routines that configure the instrument to perform the operation you want. Message 3 of Because creating crisp graphical user interfaces in LabVIEW is easy, we could have also chosen to visualize the data in a chart or graph. Thousands of instrument drivers, including the driver for the Agilent A, are available for free download from ni.

This example shows how to configure a measurement and take multiple readings. And have you tried setting the termination property in MAX? Most instrument drivers have menu palettes that include the following components.
Message 2 of Introduction to the A Instrument Driver An instrument driver is a set of software routines that control a programmable instrument.
After you call these VIs, the instrument is ready to take measurements or to stimulate a system.

LabVIEW itself is a graphical development environment for creating sgilent and scalable test, measurement, and control applications rapidly and at minimal cost. Thousands of instrument drivers, including the driver for the Agilent A, are available for free download from ni. The Status VIs obtain the current status of the instrument or agioent status of pending operations.
You can labvie instrument control applications and systems by programmatically linking instrument driver VIs on the block diagram.
Instead of telling me how to use the agilent tool which I have oneit explains why I should buy something else. Message 3 of Back to Top 2. With these, you can quickly and easily take your application far beyond merely programming the instrument to create a completely user-defined solution. If you are looking for an easy way to increase the speed, sensor support, and channel count of your test and measurement system then you may want consider adding NI CompactDAQ hardware to your setup.
You can experiment with whether a new line is needed or not. I have everything setup in NI Max but I can’t get through the initialization routine.
Using the Agilent 34970A with LabVIEW
Each palette represents a distinct category of instrument driver functions for programming the Agllent. An instrument driver is a set of software routines that control a programmable instrument. National Instruments provides a free LabVIEW instrument driver for the A, which gives you programmatic control over the unit from your PC, while having to do little or no programming yourself.
Enabling autozero optimizes the instrument for accuracy, while disabling optimizes for speed.
Using the Agilent A with LabVIEW – National Instruments
The Utility VIs- perform a variety of labvjew that are auxiliary to the most often used instrument driver VIs. Overview of Instrument Drivers An instrument driver is a set of software routines that control a programmable instrument. Make sure that for each successful call to the Initialize VI, you use a matching Close VI to avoid maintaining unnecessary memory resources.
Figure 1 shows the graphical user interface of one of the A example programs, used to control the A matrix switch module. 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 agilennt platform.
Please try again, only this time explain how to use Labview with the Agilent labviiew. After the instrument has been configured, the Read VI is used to read multiple points. 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.
Because creating crisp graphical user interfaces in LabVIEW is easy, we could have also chosen to visualize the data in a chart or graph. Unlike other programming environments, all programming in LabVIEW is done graphically through labbiew flowchart-style coding and functional blocks. In this example, serial communication is used.
For other instrument driver types, the examples will be available from the Application Examples subpalette from the corresponding instrument driver. I am using Agilent now but may want to use Kikusui or California Instruments without changing my software. Additionally, it can perform any necessary actions to place the instrument in its default power on agilennt or in another specific state.
I always receive a timeout because the driver does not send a line feed at the end of the string. Rate this document Select a Rating 1 – Poor 2 3 4 5 – Excellent.
