Hundreds of functional blocks for analysis, signal processing, and mathematics are built-in to the environment, making LabVIEW a smart choice for manipulating raw data collected with the A. Instead of telling me how to use the agilent tool which I have one , it explains why I should buy something else. I pulled down the project-style one found here. The block diagram in Figure 4 extends the functionality of our previously created code to discover the peaks of the dataset and then log those values to a tab-delimited text file compatible with Excel. Please try again, only this time explain how to use Labview with the Agilent instrument. This document introduces the instrument driver and also discusses an alternative hardware option to the A that can add speed and sensor compatibility to your PC-based measurement system, depending on your application. I am using the downloaded drivers.

GUI for impedance measurement automation on Agilent A – CORE
Getting data from the Impedance Analyzer a. Message 4 of Introduction to the A Instrument Driver An instrument driver is a set of software routines that control a programmable instrument.
If you have high-speed requirements you may need to look at alternative ways of getting the data, such as using a DAQ board. But I just have no idea how to do even that.
This application initializes communication with the A, takes 10 voltage readings from each channel in the scan list, and finally ends communication and checks for errors.
can’t run VI’s for 4294A
Please try again, only this time explain how to use Labview with the Agilent instrument. I’m not familiar with that instrument, but I took a quick look at the instrument driver for agilet. Thousands of instrument drivers, including the driver for the Agilent A, are available for free download from ni. LLB as usually 2 files and associated menu files.
Instrument Control (GPIB, Serial, VISA, IVI)
Message 1 of Setting up the hardware to achieve these high rates, resolutions, and channel counts has never been easier or quicker. As i track the timing of each sub vi. LabVIEW can also be used to interface with a data management system, whether that consists of a simple spreadsheet file or a relational database.
Use the instrument driver VIs to define your custom application.
I am sorry, maybe I am not being clear enough. Even GPIB is questionable since you have so many software layers to get through. I am collecting data through GPIB.
Using the Agilent A with LabVIEW – National Instruments
In Figure 3, we show the block diagram of a sample application created with these VIs. This document introduces the instrument driver and also discusses an alternative hardware option to the A that can add speed and sensor compatibility to your PC-based measurement system, depending on your application.
For resources that outline the fundamentals of this industry-standard development environment, please refer to the links at the end of this agilenh. I am using Labview 8.
Message 5 of However when the voltages around 4. Depending on when they were written there will be differences in implementation and examples. Whenever I try to collect a set of data, it would take over 10 secs. The NI CompactDAQ platform is an excellent hardware option to consider when adding to or creating a user-defined, PC-based data logging or bench top automated test system. Labviee 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.
