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. It displays the acquired data on a front panel indicator not pictured. A significant advantage of customizing your LabVIEW application is that it enables you to combine the unique functions of the instrument driver with the standard functions built-in to LabVIEW. Continuous data acquisition with Agilent A. Turn on Context Help and read the function descriptions. Message 8 of 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.

However when the voltages around 4.

Could you give me some advice? I changed my VI and now I can configurate the measurements. I would like to here your recommendation about this subject. Introduction to the A Instrument Driver An instrument driver is a set of software routines that control a programmable instrument. This site uses cookies to offer you a agilennt browsing experience.

Continuous data acquisition with Agilent A – Discussion Forums – National Instruments

Each routine that composes the driver corresponds to a programmatic operation such as configuring, reading from, writing to, or triggering the instrument. Hundreds of functional blocks for analysis, signal processing, and mathematics are built-in to the environment, making LabVIEW a smart choice for manipulating raw data collected with the A. The NI CompactDAQ platform is an excellent hardware option to consider when adding to or creating a user-defined, PC-based data logging or bench top automated test system.

Setting up the hardware to achieve these high rates, resolutions, and channel counts has never been easier or quicker. Message 7 of Message 2 of Sample code created with instrument driver functions.

Using the Agilent 34970A with LabVIEW

Continuous data acquisition with Agilent A. Yes, in order to continuously read, you must use a while loop.

In Figure 3, we show the block diagram of a sample application created with these VIs. I copied that from a VI I created some months ago and didn’t really know how to put them together. There’s very little in that program that is correct.

LabVIEW can also be used to interface with a data management system, whether that consists of a simple spreadsheet file or a relational database. To run this example, the user first sets the GPIB or serial communication parameters.

But I’ll try to work on it. Do I really have to use a While Loop or is there a function I don’t know yet?

Can I use the National Instruments 34970A LabView Driver and Examples with the 34972A?

It should be around the scan and read function. Because creating crisp graphical user interfaces in LabVIEW is easy, we could have also chosen labveiw visualize the data in a chart or graph.


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. Message 9 of Rate this document Select a Rating 1 – Poor 2 3 4 5 – Excellent. Message 10 of But both together is not working the way I want to. The configuration should be outside the loop.

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.

Using the Agilent A with LabVIEW – National Instruments

A basic program using the or would go something like this. You do not understand how to use that instrument correctly. A significant advantage of customizing your LabVIEW application is that it enables you to combine the unique functions of the instrument driver with the standard functions built-in to LabVIEW. Thank you for the response. Message 5 of I’ll try to change the program.
