You can create instrument control applications and systems by programmatically linking instrument driver VIs on the block diagram. The Utility VIs might also include other custom instrument driver VIs that perform operations such as calibration or storage and recall of setups. The most straightforward way to take advantage of the LabVIEW instrument driver is to run the example programs, which require only basic user configuration. Two instrument driver palettes are shown below, in Figure 2. The Agilent B AC power sources are pretty commonly used so I find it surprising that someone else hasn’t come across this issue. The Configuration VIs- a collection of software routines that configure the instrument to perform the operation you want.

Using the Agilent 34970A with LabVIEW
Unfortunately, it is not sending the line feed terminating character at the end of the string. When you wish to extend the capabilities of the examples, or wish to start a new custom application, the set of LabVIEW functions installed with the instrument driver provide all the building blocks you will need.
Then, with the example agi,ent, the user can toggle any LED in the array to open or close a matrix cross point on the A module. 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.
Instrument drivers simplify instrument control and reduce test program development time by eliminating the need to learn the programming protocol for each instrument. The Agilent B AC power sources are pretty commonly used so I find it surprising that someone else hasn’t come across this issue. Instrument drivers simplify control and reduce test program development time by eliminating the need to learn the unique programming and communication protocol for the instrument.
With these, you can quickly and easily take your application far beyond merely programming the instrument to create a completely user-defined solution.
I think the property node for the termination is the way to go. Any custom LabVIEW application you create will be composed of a front panel, which is the graphical user interface, and a block diagram, which is the flow chart-style code created with these functional blocks VIs.
Message 8 of However when the voltages around 4. The termination is not required with GPIB. Message 7 of After the instrument has been configured, the Lzbview VI is used ,abview read multiple points.
Introduction to the A Instrument Driver An instrument driver is a set of software routines that control a programmable instrument.
Setting up the hardware to achieve these high rates, resolutions, and channel counts has never been easier or quicker. Many instrument drivers have a VI Tree VI labvisw can use to view the entire instrument labvied hierarchy.
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. Message 9 of An instrument driver is a set of software routines that control a programmable instrument.
Using the Agilent A with LabVIEW – National Instruments
Numerous Configuration VIs can exist, depending on the particular instrument. 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. Most Active Hardware Boards: If you are looking for an easy way to increase the labvview, sensor support, and channel count of your test and measurement system then you may want consider adding NI CompactDAQ hardware to your setup.
This document introduces the instrument driver and also discusses an alternative hardware agilnt to the A that can add speed and sensor compatibility to your PC-based measurement system, depending on your application.
Use the instrument driver VIs to define your custom application.
