I am sorry, maybe I am not being clear enough. An instrument driver is a set of software routines that control a programmable instrument. As for your speed issue: Please try again, only this time explain how to use Labview with the Agilent instrument. Was the “status” boolean in the error cluster actually on? I was able to get the data, there seems to be some performance issues.

LabVIEW can also be used to interface with a data management system, whether that consists of a simple spreadsheet file or a relational database. I am sorry, maybe I am not being clear enough.

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. It displays the acquired data on a front panel indicator not pictured.

Also, since this is an old thread and your problem is unrelated, you should start a new one. This document introduces the instrument driver and also discusses an alternative hardware option to the A that can add speed and sensor compatibility to your PC-based measurement system, depending on your application. Hex 0x3FFF issue and the error code of The connection worked just fine. I know this is a number of byte problem, but I was not able to resolve it.

Technical Support

As far as what those difference are, you can’t really say, as it depends on the drivers and when they were written, as well as by whom. I am using Agilennt 8. 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.


We have used three voltage measurement configurations proposed by labfiew at agikent An instrument driver is a set of software routines that control a programmable instrument. Message 9 of The most straightforward way to take advantage of the LabVIEW instrument driver is to run the example programs, which require only basic user configuration. Six such ready-to-run examples are provided by National Instruments in the driver.

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.

As outlined above, using the A with a LabVIEW instrument driver creates a useful PC-based virtual instrumentation lwbview for acquiring, analyzing, and presenting test data. To run this example, the user first sets the GPIB or serial communication parameters. Message 5 of It’s usually better, though, to provide a labfiew panel path control.

Each routine that composes the driver corresponds to a programmatic operation such as configuring, reading from, writing to, or triggering the instrument. I am collecting data through GPIB.

A/A LabView Programming Examples | Keysight (formerly Agilent’s Electronic Measurement)

Two instrument driver palettes 2494a shown below, in Figure 2. Message 10 of LabVIEW 4294q an industry-standard graphical programming environment that can be used to quickly and easily acquire, analyze, and present data from the A.


Figure 1 shows the graphical user interface of one of the A example programs, used to control the A matrix switch module. 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 labvieww text file compatible with Excel.

Please try again, only this time explain how to use Labview with the Agilent instrument. LabVIEW itself is a graphical development environment for creating flexible and scalable test, measurement, and control applications rapidly and at minimal cost. I pulled down the project-style one found here. Any custom LabVIEW application you create will be composed of a front panel, which is the graphical user interface, and a block agilenr, which is the flow chart-style code created with these functional blocks VIs.

I have browsed through all the provided examples in the driver.

The driver page says it supports Ethernet so if you have a problem, describe what it is.
