Does agileng have advice on how to log the samples at recieved from the multimeter in relative time, continiously for defined period of time. Most Active Software Boards: Message 4 of 4.

As many posts have said, a timeout error can have numerous causes. Instrument drivers simplify instrument control and reduce test program development time by eliminating the need to learn the programming protocol for each instrument. It has been busy for me for the past weeks, but here is the output.

The method I show assumes you add a Timestamp control to the Front Panel where the operator is inputting a time in the future when the test will stop. Then the Configure Measurement VI is called to set the instrument up for the desired measurement.

Has a 3 Application Examples and a “Getting Started” one which should get you on your way. Message 3 of 4.

The following figure shows this palette and some of the VIs and subpalettes that are shipped with it. Hello, I was wondering if this issue was resolved. These VIs include the majority of the instrument driver template VIs, such as reset, self-test, revision, error query, and error message. The Configuration VIs- a collection of software routines that configure the instrument to perform the operation you want. Any tips would be useful.


I get an error windows with the values the multimeter has acquired, I think.

However, LabVIEW Plug 34401x Play instrument drivers are distributed with their block diagram source code, so you can customize them for a specific application. It is a nice icon with red lettering and a tiny picture of the multimeter.

See this KnowedgeBase for more information.

The Status VIs obtain the current status of the instrument or the status of pending operations. Double check the com settings on the instrument and verify they match. Each VI corresponds to a programmatic operation, such as configuring, reading from, writing to, and triggering an instrument. Have a great day! Overview of Instrument Drivers An instrument driver is a set of software routines that control a programmable instrument. Examples include VIs for reading a measured value or waveform and VIs for downloading waveforms or digital patterns to a source instrument.

Message 3 of 7. 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. Generally, you need to call the Close VI only once at the end of an application or when you finish communication with an instrument. You can create instrument control applications and systems by programmatically linking instrument driver VIs on the block diagram.


In the following figure we have opened the Agilent Read Multiple Measurements.

Additionally, it can perform any necessary actions to place the instrument in its default power on state or in another specific state. Soon, you’ll combine them into your own vi and you’ll prefer using the multimeter through Labview rather than pressing the buttons.

In this example, serial communication is used. You also can use the Instrument Driver Finder to open example programs covering everything from analysis and presentation to using your instrument driver.
