With these, you can quickly and easily take your application far beyond merely programming the instrument to create a completely user-defined solution. 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. Six such ready-to-run examples are provided by National Instruments in the driver. Use the instrument driver VIs to define your custom application. For resources that outline the fundamentals of this industry-standard development environment, please refer to the links at the end of this section. Each routine that composes the driver corresponds to a programmatic operation such as configuring, reading from, writing to, or triggering the instrument. Instead of telling me how to use the agilent tool which I have one , it explains why I should buy something else.

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. It displays the acquired data on a front panel indicator not pictured. For resources labvieq outline the fundamentals of this industry-standard development environment, please refer to the links at the end of this section.
Sample code created with instrument driver functions. I would like to here your recommendation about this subject. 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.
Please try again, only this time explain how to use Labview with the Agilent instrument. Rate this document Select a Rating 1 – Poor 2 3 4 5 – Excellent. Setting up the hardware to achieve these high rates, resolutions, and channel counts has never been easier or quicker.
Introduction to the A Instrument Driver An instrument driver is a set of software routines that control a programmable instrument.
Two instrument driver palettes are shown below, in Figure 2. If you are looking for an easy way to increase the speed, sensor support, and channel count of your test and measurement system then you may want consider adding NI CompactDAQ hardware to your setup. With these, you can quickly and easily take your application far beyond merely programming the instrument to create a completely user-defined solution.
Labvieq itself is a graphical development environment for creating flexible and scalable test, measurement, and control applications rapidly and at minimal cost. This application initializes communication with the A, takes 10 voltage readings from each channel in the scan list, and finally ends communication and checks for errors.
Instrument drivers simplify control and reduce test program 1173a time by eliminating the need to learn the unique programming and communication protocol for the instrument.
An instrument driver is a set of software routines that control a programmable instrument.

However when the voltages around 4. Back to Top 2. Instead of telling me how to use the agilent tool which I have oneit explains why I should buy something else. Figure 1 shows the graphical user interface of one of the A example programs, used to control the A matrix switch module. To run this example, the user first sets the GPIB or serial communication parameters.
LabVIEW is an industry-standard graphical programming environment that can be used to quickly and easily acquire, analyze, and present data from the A. Thousands of instrument drivers, including the driver for agilen Agilent A, are available for free download from ni.
The most straightforward way to take advantage of the LabVIEW instrument driver is to run the example programs, which require only basic user configuration. When you wish 11713x extend the capabilities of the examples, or wish to start a new custom application, the set of LabVIEW functions installed with the instrument driver provide all the building blocks you will need.

LabVIEW can also be used to interface with a data management system, whether that consists of a simple spreadsheet file or a relational database. As outlined above, using the A with a LabVIEW instrument driver creates a useful PC-based virtual instrumentation system for acquiring, analyzing, and presenting test data.
Because creating crisp graphical user interfaces in LabVIEW is easy, we could have also chosen to visualize the data in a chart or graph. 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.
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.
