HP 3458A LABVIEW DRIVER

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. In this case we used data storage for DMM logs, datashort , which probably familiar to our readers by this article. 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. Output test data can be viewed on this datalogging page. Because creating crisp graphical user interfaces in LabVIEW is easy, we could have also chosen to visualize the data in a chart or graph.

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. Each palette represents a distinct category of instrument driver functions lqbview programming the A. We could have even posted the application’s user interface to a web page for remote monitoring and control using the built-in LabVIEW web server.

For resources that outline the fundamentals of this industry-standard development environment, please refer to the links at the end of this section. This instrument driver will allow you to use your A, while having to do little or no low level VISA programming yourself. LabVIEW itself is a graphical development environment for creating flexible and scalable test, measurement, and control applications rapidly and at minimal cost. In Figure 3, we show the block diagram of a sample application created with these VIs.

Instruments under control are: When you wish to 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. Instrument drivers simplify control and reduce test program development time by eliminating the need to learn the unique programming and communication protocol for the instrument.

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.

While the LabVIEW instrument driver for the A itself does not include ready-to-run example programs, 34458a are three ready-to-run example programs available from www.

This can be useful to set delays in code to allow meter labviww auto-calibration to minimize errors. Let’s suppose, for instance, that after acquiring data in the example above, we wish to detect the peak values in the data set and log those to file. 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.
