Message 8 of 8. 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. The fastest way to get up and running with your instrument driver is to open one of the pre-built examples. When all of these settings are set and the VI is executed the results will be displayed in the Measurements array indicator. Learn more about our privacy policy. LabVIEW is an industry-standard graphical programming environment that can be used to quickly and easily acquire, analyze, and present data from the A. Do you want to filter or process a waveform and display it in real-time?

Is it possible to parallel more than 2 units of the A to labvieq bias current output range? The Action VIs – initiate or terminate test and measurement operations, such as arming the trigger system or generating a stimulus.

Enable JavaScript to view product images. Are you getting the right channel’s data? The data is copied from a waveform memory, function. This is exactly what happend i. LabVIEW itself is a graphical development environment for creating flexible and scalable test, measurement, and control applications rapidly and at minimal cost. The annotation can be corrected using a short program.

When are you going to support Vista? Is the scope constantly acquiring? Lagview also can use the Instrument Driver Finder to open example programs covering everything from analysis and presentation to using your instrument driver. With regards to the application itself, I think that you should read into how you can trigger and send interrupts along the GPIB line because GPIB itself is a slow communication protocol.

Select 1 to hours. Generally, you lahview to call the Initialize VI only once at the beginning of an application. What does channel add mean?

The Agulent modulation is activated now. Then 866100d that to the example code or device datasheet See if there are any constants or controls used that possess an equivalent size and then increase that. You could also ensure that the loop stops based on an error condition as well, by performing a Logical OR between the Status flag of the error wire and the Stop Button; this is a pretty common technique that you’ll find in a lot of VIs. Try checking for the differences in their implementation. I would think putting an infinate while loop around the code will give me continous data.

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 Excel.

Each VI corresponds to a programmatic operation, such as configuring, reading from, writing to, and triggering an instrument. With these, you can quickly and easily take your agileht far beyond merely programming the instrument to create a completely user-defined solution.

In this example, serial communication is used. Capture deep memory waveforms and save them as a. I have a simple question. This application initializes communication with the A, takes 10 voltage readings from each channel in the scan list, and finally ends communication and checks for errors.

Then the Configure 866100d VI is called to set the instrument up for the desired measurement. In the code there was an array of channel names; you could use this array to Auto-Index a For Loop and place the acquisition inside.

LabVIEW is an industry-standard graphical programming environment that can be used to quickly and agilnt acquire, analyze, and present data from the A. When you wish to extend the capabilities labvieew the examples, or wish to start a new custom application, 86100 set of LabVIEW functions installed with the instrument driver provide all the building blocks you will need.

Use the instrument driver VIs to define your custom application. The driver also includes a full set of functional building blocks that can be used to create a completely custom A application in LabVIEW.

Simply copying and past four times seems as a crude approach but maybe there is a better way of doing it.
