It accepts the “R5” command and returns a reading if I query, but it didn’t change the setting. The Wizard problem I understand now. Message 4 of I have never tried to create my own driver before, but the HP driver I have is not very complicated, so it’s been fairly easy to modify the driver, but since I’m new to this, there are a couple of things that I am not sure about. It may not suit all your needs but combined with the manual that Jeff Bohrer found for you, it can be a jumping off point in your development. To clarify question 2:

That piece of junk driver for the is much more complicated than a more modern driver. It doesn’t implement any commands the K uses, and it contains a bunch of SCPI commands that do not work for the K! Lol, I didn’t mean to imply that I would be looking these up in the HP manual, I am writing this for a Keithley so any info I need will obviously come from the Keithley manual, and of course I realize that each device has its own capabilities that the other does not, i.
Message 4 of The switches behind the Keithley are also in 1181 correct position.
Keithley ke181 Meter
Since its Friday I dusted off my old Keithley and plugged it in. Yes, all of those strings are unique to the HP instrument. Most Active Software Boards: DLL to this messaege. There is a template for a DMM. I’ve double checked already. You will need to learn them, and also how to setup the instrument for communications.
Does anyone have a clue of what is happening? It accepts the “R5” command and returns a reading if I query, but it didn’t change the setting.
To clarify question 2: Why it only works in the 3. You have 2 instruments, so you should see them both listed.
I also attached the drive files with. I don’t need the driver to be complicated, and I don’t need it to be a commercial product that I can sell, I just want it to work. I believe there is a specific way to send the string to this equipment that I not able figure out yet. Most Active Hardware Boards: Question on creating a driver.
Keithley ke Meter – IEEE (GPIB) Driver for LabVIEW – National Instruments
It looks more like a default driver template that could be used to create a driver for the K It may not suit all your needs but combined with the manual that Jeff Bohrer found for you, it can be a jumping off point in your development. So went I hit “Communicate with instrument” I receive an error message right away or I receive a voltage measurement info don’t know why. I beg to differ.
So looking at the manual there’s an “X” command, which says Execute other commands. It’s probably something I can look up in the manual, but if I don’t know whart the number is for, then I can’t go look it up.
For labbiew modes 0, 6 or 7 work with K If that still doesn’t work for you then this code and see what you get.
The multi line properties take the user input to concatinate a sting keithlfy give the correct command to the device. Auto-suggest helps you quickly narrow down your search results by suggesting possible matches as you type.
What were your settings?
If you just hit READ, it will timeout. You will have to manually setup the gpib address by setting the dip switches on the back. Others will fail to change anything, probably because the instrument is stuck waiting for the kiethley characters that never arrive. I am unsure what this number refers to.
