GPIB USB LABVIEW DRIVER

Using your computer, you can take advantage of this powerful development and debugging tool to interactively communicate read, write, serial poll, and so on with your GPIB instruments. Once you have determined the GPIB address of your instruments, you can easily establish communications to verify that you can send and receive data to and from the instrument. Many times, systems are powered down and cables are disconnected from instruments for maintenance or system configuration changes. To communicate with your instrument at Address 4, follow these instructions:. Our instrument should return an identification string.

If there is a problem, you no longer see your device. To prevent damage to the GPIB-USB hardware or other components in your system when different ground potentials are involved, do any of the following:.

Back to Top 2. With the VISAIC utility, you can speed up application development by learning how to automate measurements with your instruments, uncover GPIB problems, and avoid headaches by identifying malfunctioning instruments.

Install Instrument Drivers Next. Instruments typically respond with the manufacturer’s name, model name, and various alphanumeric characters that the manufacturer uses to track firmware revisions. This indicates that you should check for loose or disconnected cables, power disruption, or a malfunctioning instrument. You can also find these at ni.

MAX makes GPIB instrument detection and control easy by providing you tools to search for connecting instruments, and send and receive communication with your device. ID querying is discussed in the next section.

Unfortunately, engineers sometimes forget to reconnect all the cables and power up all the instruments. Alternatively, system power may be disrupted for a variety of reasons or the actual instrument may begin to malfunction.

Because the GPIB signals at each end are transformed into fiber-optic signals, each unit can reside at a different ground potential. When VISAIC initially runs, it automatically finds all of the available resources in the system and lists the instrument descriptors for each resource under the appropriate resource type.

Repeat this process to confirm communication with all of your connected instruments.

If it is not, then you know to check cables, confirm power, and verify that the instrument is working properly. Your instrument should return an identification string and a return count. These productivity tools help you focus on developing your test pgib instead of tracking down obscure problems or establishing communications with your instruments. If it labvieww not, then you know to check cables, confirm power, and verify that the instrument is working properly.

Instrument Control (GPIB, Serial, VISA, IVI)

Many times, systems are powered down and cables are disconnected from instruments for maintenance or system configuration changes. Otherwise, the GPIB interface is detected when you start your computer.

If your computer is already running, the operating system automatically detects the GPIB interface.

Instruments must be powered on and connected to the GPIB controller to be recognized. Alternatively, system power may be disrupted for a variety of reasons or the actual instrument may begin to malfunction.

Instruments typically respond with the manufacturer’s name, model name, and various alphanumeric characters that the manufacturer uses to track firmware revisions. Click on Scan for Instruments. The best way to achieve this is by using instrument drivers.

If your system involves different ground potentials, the voltage difference could surge through the GPIB hardware and cause damage. MAX scans for connected instruments, confirms communication, and creates the necessary handles for programming. These productivity tools help you focus on developing your test applications instead of trying to track down obscure problems or establishing communications with your instruments.
