You also can use the Instrument Driver Finder to open example programs covering everything from analysis and presentation to using your instrument driver.

Message 3 of 4. Message 1 of 4. I’m not sure about instructions, but if you installed the driver and opened the library, you will get sub-vi’s which have a particular application purpose. Works like a charm. LabVIEW instrument drivers simplify instrument control and reduce test program development time by eliminating the need for you to learn the complex, low-level programming commands for each instrument.

I hope not to offend NI people http: For other instrument driver types, the examples will be available from the Application Examples subpalette from the corresponding instrument driver. Examples include VIs for reading a measured value or waveform and VIs for downloading waveforms or digital patterns to a source instrument. Feel free to write us at les.


Most Active Software Boards: Message 3 of 7. Then agileent Configure Measurement VI is called to set the instrument up for the desired measurement. I opened that one. I download directly from Agilent’s website.
