Three ready-to-run examples are available from Agilent for the A platform. This instrument driver will allow you to use your A, while having to do little or no low level VISA programming yourself. Sample code created with instrument driver functions. Legal Privacy Terms Trademark Acknowledgements. The most straightforward way to take advantage of the LabVIEW instrument driver is to run the example programs, which give the user a basic introduction to the programming flow for the driver. May be easily adapted to other MUX cards.

3498a0 installation directory defaults to C: 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. Since peak detection is one of the analysis functions available in LabVIEW, we can easily add that functionality to our application. Is this due to the way I have it set up in the loop, or the rate at which the code runs? Message 5 of lwbview.

Using the Agilent A with LabVIEW – National Instruments

Because creating crisp graphical user interfaces in LabVIEW is easy, we could have also chosen to visualize the data in a chart or graph. Demonstrates programming the DAC for creating an internal waveform.

Simple example to output an internal waveform. LabVIEW is an industry-standard graphical programming environment that can be used to quickly and easily acquire, analyze, and present data from the A.


34980A Example Programs

Rate this document Select a Rating 1 – Poor 2 3 laabview 5 – Excellent. There are three example programs contained in the following directories for using IVI-C: Keysight support engineers can help explain the functionality of Keysight software components and associated commands, but they will not modify these example programs to provide added functionality or construct procedures to meet your specific needs.

Microsoft is a U. Demonstrates reading data from a spreadsheet and programming the DAC for creating a waveform with the data.

This site uses cookies to offer you a better browsing experience. Two instrument driver palettes are shown below, in Figure 2. I have also downloaded the driver for the and if that’s available, perhaps I could replicate it.

34980A Multifunction Switch/Measure Mainframe LabVIEW Instrument Drivers

This application initializes communication with the A, configures a switch scanning operation, takes 10 voltage readings from each channel in the scan list, and ends communication checking for errors. Use the instrument driver VIs to define your custom application.

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. I did make my own “Scan” vi that has several output options, it is a modified version of teh scan example.

That’s what I always use and have never ran into a situation where I needed anything else. Message 1 of 7. For resources that outline the fundamentals of this industry-standard development environment, please refer to the links at the end of this section. The code in the loop, however, does not seem to see this. Knowing that our DAS was labvied out good data made me hesitant to spend time on checking it from the front panel, but I will do so this afternoon. Message 6 of 7. 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 34980 immediately control the Agilent A.


Use the ready-to-run example programs for a simple measurement application with little development effort, or customize them to take advantage of the additional analysis and presentation capability of LabVIEW. I have attached images of the relevent panels. Demonstrates digital input and output, DC output from the DAC, reading and configuring the totalizer.

Using these example programs as a starting point, it is possible to begin communicating with the Agilent A very quickly, eliminating the difficulties associated with starting a project from scratch. In your other thread http: 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.

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.
