I have no idea what this means. The Initialize VI- the first instrument driver VI you call, establishes communication with the instrument.
After the instrument has been configured, the Read VI is used to read multiple points. However, LabVIEW Plug and Play instrument drivers are distributed with their block diagram source code, so you can customize them for a specific application.

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. Since that seems to be missing, try doing it in MAX when you configure the port settings. Rate this document Select a Rating 1 – Poor 2 3 4 5 – Excellent. I’ve never used IVI with a serial instrument. Am I doing something wrong? Numerous Configuration VIs can exist, depending on the particular instrument.
Thousands of instrument drivers, including the driver for the Agilent A, are available for free download from ni. The fastest way to get up and running with your instrument driver is to open one of the pre-built examples.
Is there a way to permanently set this in MAX? Setting up the hardware to achieve these high rates, resolutions, and channel counts has never been easier or quicker.
This tool searches IDNet to find the specified instrument driver. In the following figure we have opened the Agilent Read Multiple Measurements. The Utility VIs might also include other custom instrument driver VIs that perform operations such as calibration or storage and recall of setups.
With these, you can quickly and easily take your application far beyond merely programming the instrument to create a completely user-defined solution. The Configuration VIs- a collection of software routines that configure the instrument to perform the operation you want.
Then, with the example running, the user can toggle any LED in the agileht to open or close a matrix cross point on the A module. Once the measurement is complete, the Close VI is called which performs an instrument error query and terminates the software connection to the instrument. I pointed my driver session to the new DLL but it gave me an error while running the intialization.
Please try again, only this time explain how to use Labview with the Agilent instrument. I have everything setup in NI Max but I can’t get through the initialization routine. I always receive a timeout because the driver does not send a line feed at the end of the string.

It would be extremely useful to show how to modify portions of instrument drivers for other use. Rate this document Select a Rating 1 – Poor 2 3 4 5 – Excellent. 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. Each palette represents a distinct category of instrument driver functions for programming the A.
Auto-suggest helps you quickly narrow down your search results by suggesting possible matches as you type. As outlined above, using the A with a LabVIEW instrument driver creates a useful PC-based virtual instrumentation system for acquiring, analyzing, labvew presenting test data.
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. These VIs include the majority of the aagilent driver template VIs, such as reset, self-test, revision, error query, and error message.

You also can use the Instrument Driver Finder to open example programs covering everything from analysis and presentation to using your instrument driver. In Figure 3, we show the block diagram of a sample application created with these VIs.
