An instrument driver is a set of software routines that control a programmable instrument. The driver also includes a full set of functional building blocks that can be used to create a completely custom A application in LabVIEW. With these, you can quickly and easily take your application far beyond merely programming the instrument to create a completely user-defined solution. If that is so, then go into the control panel and remove the hardware element. 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. For resources that outline the fundamentals of this industry-standard development environment, please refer to the links at the end of this section.

How to Use an Instrument Driver in LabVIEW Tutorial

That fixed the problem. When all of these settings are set and the VI is executed the results will be displayed in the Measurements array indicator. Each VI corresponds to a programmatic operation, such as configuring, reading from, writing to, and triggering an instrument.

How do I delete it? Back to Top 2. The explanation for this error is “VISA: Accredited Calibration without Data. 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 small platform.


Product Highlights Output Ratings Voltage: An instrument driver is a set of software routines that control a programmable instrument. In this example, serial communication is used.

To run this example, the user first sets the GPIB or serial communication parameters. The drivers for the original card may still be installed which may fool MAX into believing that there is another card with the same address. Setting up the hardware to achieve these high rates, resolutions, and channel counts has never been easier or quicker. This product is available for labvifw to United States and Canada only.

This site uses cookies to offer you a better browsing experience. Request a Calibration Quote. Once the measurement is complete, the Close VI is called which performs an instrument error query and terminates the software connection to the 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. As labbview above, using the A with a LabVIEW instrument driver creates a useful PC-based virtual instrumentation system for acquiring, analyzing, and presenting test data. The Status VIs agiilent the current status of the instrument or the status of pending operations.

Message 9 of 9. Use the instrument driver VIs to define your custom application.

I have the same problem with this error. We encourage users not to use the “old Visa open”, it is also recommended that users not use the old and current VISA functions together.


If you go to ni. Make sure that for each successful call to the Initialize VI, you use a matching Close VI to 66612c maintaining unnecessary memory resources. Request a Rental Quote.

afilent However when the voltages around 4. LabVIEW can also be used to interface with a data management system, whether that consists of a simple spreadsheet file or a relational database. Message 3 of 9. The Configuration VIs- a collection of software routines that configure the instrument to perform the operation you want. Additionally, it can perform any necessary actions to place the instrument in its default power on state or in another specific state.

Many instrument drivers have a VI Tree VI you can use to view the entire instrument driver hierarchy. Message 4 of 9. Finally, the Simple Error Handler is called which indicates whether an error occurred.
