The driver includes a full set of functional building blocks that can be used to create a completely custom A application in LabVIEW. LabVIEW itself is a graphical development environment for creating flexible and scalable test, measurement, and control applications rapidly and at minimal cost. You can define switch sequences to control complex signal routing and the order of switch closures. Introduction to the A Instrument Driver An instrument driver is a set of software routines that control a programmable instrument. Built-in Ethernet, USB 2. Your signals are switched to the right measurement device without compromising signal integrity.

Web browser interface shows settings at a glance and provides remote access and control Self-guiding front panel to configure, troubleshoot or view data Low EMI and efficient system cooling Heavy-duty cabling and connection options Rack mount options Relay counters help predict agikent In-rack calibration for reduced maintenance time DMM measurement accuracies include the switch for simple calculations Make system connections easily and quickly with simple, reliable connection options: Use the A to route individual signals or monitor multiple signals over a specified period of time—monitor a single channel or multiple channels, set alarms, and identify irregularities.
The A offers high-density multiplexers for scanning multiple channels, matrices for connecting multiple points at one time, and general xgilent switches for simple agllent and high power needs. The most straightforward way to take advantage of the LabVIEW instrument driver is to run the example programs, which give the user a basic introduction to the programming flow for the driver.
34980A Multifunction Switch/Measure Mainframe and Modules
Let’s agillent, for instance, that after acquiring data in the example above, we wish to detect the peak values in the data set and log those to file. 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.
Switch in different measurements with high-performance signal switching with no external signal conditioning required. Because creating crisp graphical user interfaces in LabVIEW is easy, we could have also chosen to visualize the data in a chart or graph. Sample code created with instrument driver functions.
The A handles system switching up to 20 GHz and provides basic measurements and system control. It can be incorporated into a more powerful and user-defined virtual instrumentation solution by taking advantage of LabVIEW’s unique instrument control, analysis, and user interface features.
Instrument drivers simplify control and reduce test program development time by eliminating the need to learn the unique ailent and communication protocol for the instrument. An instrument driver is a set of software routines that control a programmable instrument. Rate this document Select a Rating 1 – Poor 2 3 4 5 – Excellent. You can buy what you need now and add to it or reconfigure it as your requirements change.
Since peak detection is one of the analysis functions 344980a in LabVIEW, we can easily add that functionality to our application.
This can help you determine when to begin or end an acquisition. 349980a signals are switched to the right measurement device without compromising signal integrity.
Agilent A Multifunction Switch / Measure Unit – Test Equipment Depot
Three ready-to-run examples are available from Agilent for the A platform. The IO Libraries provide robust instrument control and work with the software development environment you choose. Whether you are measuring temperature, AC or DC voltage, agilsnt, frequency, current, or custom measurements, the A offers the functionality you need in a single box. Each palette represents a distinct category of instrument driver functions for programming the A.
Easier signal routing with four 2-wire internal analog buses. 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.
Providing the finest test equipment solutions since 1992
External trigger capabilities agilejt it easy for you to time and synchronize measurements and other events. You can route your measurements directly to the internal DMM, or you can connect to external instruments through the analog bus connector on the rear of the mainframe. The A helps you lower your cost of test and accelerate your test-system integration and development. LabVIEW itself is a graphical development environment for creating flexible and scalable test, measurement, and control applications rapidly and at minimal cost.

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 Aggilent. High-performance unit provides low-cost alternative to PXI and VXI switch and measurement platforms If you use agildnt test equipment for design validation or manufacturing, you now have a cost-effective alternative to PXI and Agiletn test-system platforms.
