Using an IVI-COM Instrument Driver in LabVIEW – National Instruments
Figure 10 shows the Context Help window for the AutoRange property. The Data VIs- transfer data to or from the instrument.
Instrument Driver Organization Once an instrument driver has been downloaded, the instrument driver VIs will be located on the Instrument Drivers palette. This example shows how to configure a measurement and take llabview readings.

How to Use an Instrument Driver in LabVIEW Tutorial
Dotted properties are a shorthand alternative to lbaview multiple Property Nodes that return interface references needed for wiring properties and methods specific to a given interface. 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. Make sure that for each successful call to the Initialize VI, you use a matching Close VI to avoid maintaining unnecessary memory resources.
Works like a charm. The Configuration VIs- a collection of software routines that configure the instrument to perform the operation you want.
A/A LabView Programming Examples | Keysight (formerly Agilent’s Electronic Measurement)
These VIs include the majority of the instrument driver template VIs, such as reset, self-test, revision, error query, and error message. Both of these drives are supported by Agilent and come complete with example code for common tasks.
For other instrument driver types, the examples will be available labvie the Application Examples subpalette from the corresponding instrument driver. Feel free to write us at les. Place a checkmark in the Show Creatable Objects Only check-box to display only objects that you can create.
The class interface changes and a new set of properties and methods are now selectable, shown in Figure 6. I agiilent know which driver you are using, so it is difficult to send you an example. Viewing context help for AutoRange property. An instrument driver is a set of software routines that control a programmable instrument. Your on your way to success Hope this helps.
The Utility VIs- perform a variety of operations that are auxiliary to the most often used instrument driver VIs. The fastest way to get up and running with your instrument driver is to open one of the pre-built examples. I hope not to offend NI people http: Get acquainted with sub-vi’s. Installing Software Refer to the instrument driver Readme file for agolent software requirements.
Automation Open and type library refnum. However, LabVIEW Plug and Play instrument drivers are distributed with their block diagram source code, so you can customize them for a specific application.
You should consider all driver choices available, and choose the driver that best fits your needs. Dottable properties have a blue glyph next to the property name.

Most Active Software Boards: The alternative to using the NI Instrument Driver Finder is to go directly to the Instrument Driver Network and search for your instrument driver there.
