Numerous Configuration VIs can exist, depending on the particular instrument. Once an instrument driver has been downloaded, the instrument driver VIs will be located on the Instrument Drivers palette. You also can use the Instrument Driver Finder to open example programs covering everything from analysis and presentation to using your instrument driver. They also have a CVI driver that can be converted. Message 4 of 4. Thank you for help!

Unfortunately I haven’t been able to find a way to achieve this. Additionally, it can perform any necessary actions 34401 place the instrument in its default power on state or in another specific state. Finally, the Simple Error Handler is called which indicates whether an error occurred. Message 4 of 6. Message 7 of 7. 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.

I don’t know which driver you are using, so it is difficult to send you an example. Yes you can do this, but in principle you are writing your own driver. Message 2 of 4. If you are not very concerned with high speed aka you can wait for the data to be written to diskyou can just add the “Write to delimited Spreadsheet” to the labvoew loop.

Each routine corresponds to a programmatic operation such as configuring, reading from, writing to, and triggering the instrument. Instrument drivers simplify instrument control and reduce test program development time by eliminating the need to learn the programming protocol for each instrument.

This example shows how to configure a measurement and take multiple readings.

Also think what your main goals is for your programming, presumably making IV measurements and not writing drivers. After you call these VIs, the instrument is ready to take measurements or to stimulate a system. Generally, you need to call the Close VI only once labvjew the end of an application or when you finish communication with an instrument.

Once the measurement is complete, the Close VI is called which performs an instrument error query and terminates the software connection to the instrument. Many instrument drivers have pabview VI Tree VI you can use to view the entire instrument driver hierarchy. You can use an instrument driver for a particular instrument as is.

I want to use this instruments to study characteristics of a diode. Message 6 of 6. Each VI labvlew to a programmatic operation, such as configuring, reading from, writing to, and triggering an instrument.

Usually this is unnecessary and time consuming and you are better of using the supplied Labview drivers. Examples include VIs for reading a measured value or waveform and VIs for downloading waveforms or digital patterns to a source instrument.


I actually needed the opposite – enable Local instead of enable Labvoew. Open a blank vi.

Works like a charm.

The best way is to open the sub-vi which appears to be what you want to do and run it. Action VIs are different from Configuration VIs because they do not change the instrument settings but order the instrument to carry out an action based on its current configuration. An instrument driver is a set of software routines that control a programmable instrument. Once an instrument driver has been downloaded, the instrument driver VIs will be located on the Instrument Drivers palette.
