You also can use the Instrument Driver Finder to open example programs covering everything from analysis and presentation to using your instrument driver. Enabling autozero optimizes the instrument for accuracy, while disabling optimizes for speed.

Using LabVIEW driver for Agilent A – Discussion Forums – National Instruments
Soon, you’ll combine them into your own vi and you’ll prefer using the multimeter through Labview rather than pressing the buttons. Make sure that for each successful call to the Initialize VI, you use a matching Close VI to avoid maintaining unnecessary memory resources.
Message 5 of 7. Open a blank vi. 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.
How to Use an Instrument Driver in LabVIEW Tutorial
After the instrument has been configured, the Read VI is used to read multiple points. Les Hammer Complete Test. I don’t know which driver you are using, so it is difficult to send you an example. You can create instrument control applications and systems by programmatically linking instrument driver VIs on the block diagram. Then the Configure Measurement VI is called to set the instrument up for the desired measurement.
They also have a CVI driver that can be converted. 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. For other instrument driver types, the examples will be available from the Application Examples subpalette from the corresponding instrument driver.
Try the link below: Instrument drivers simplify instrument control and reduce test program development time by eliminating the need to learn the programming protocol for each instrument.
Message 3 of 7. You can use an instrument driver for a particular instrument as is.
The Configuration VIs- a collection of software routines that configure the instrument to perform the operation you want. In this example, serial communication is used. Both of these drives are supported by Agilent and come complete with example code for common tasks.
Many instrument drivers have a VI Tree VI you can use to view the entire instrument driver hierarchy. Each routine corresponds to a programmatic operation such as configuring, reading from, writing to, and triggering the instrument. The Data VIs- transfer data to or from the instrument. Additionally, it can perform any necessary actions to place the instrument in its default power 34401z state or in another specific state. Message 6 of 7.

Rate this document Select a Rating 1 – Poor 2 3 4 5 – Excellent. This example shows how to configure a measurement and take multiple readings. The alternative to using the NI Instrument Driver Finder is to go 3440a to the Instrument Driver Network and search for your instrument driver there.
Once an instrument driver has been downloaded, the instrument driver VIs will be located on the Instrument Drivers palette. In the following figure we have opened the Agilent Read Multiple Measurements. LabVIEW instrument drivers simplify instrument control and reduce test program development time by eliminating the need for you to learn the complex, low-level programming commands for each instrument.
