Create a control for the name or relative path terminal on the left hand side of the Build Path Node. Measurement Function I have attached my VI. If you are only looking for a subset of the instrument’s functionality, you should be able to program using an interface API such as VISA fairly easily.

You can also troubleshoot and make manual function calls to your instrument to ensure that it is working as expected before moving into automation. Message 8 of Find some hints about the Of course if you have the driver, that will be easier and faster. On the Write Delimited Spreadsheet Node create a constant for the top format terminal.

Add an input for the number of bins to create by right clicking the number of bins 10 terminal on the left hand side of the Histogram Node and selecting Create control.

Keithley Sub-Femtoamp Remote SourceMete – Instrument Driver – National Instruments

Currently, my program uses SMU to do that but i would like to change it to because it has a bigger range but i’m unable to do so. These modules also include traditional SMU features such as output disconnect relays to isolate the instrument from your circuit, remote sense to compensate for lead drop, and guard to minimize leakage current in small signals.


Labvkew this return a description of the instrument? If it’s only a few, you can just use VISA functions to directly command the instrument to do what you’d like! To create a constant input for the Auto Zero node so that the Auto Zero is always enabled, create a Constant at the Autozero terminal on the Auto Labvie node. The NI Instrument Driver Network houses thousands of instrument drivers for automating 3 rd party devices.

The Histogram Node can be configured with several inputs. Rename the control “File Name”.

Select Histogram Single-Shot to find the discrete histogram of our signal. Then wire together the error out terminal of the Write Delimited Spreadsheet Node to the error in terminal of the Close Keithlley.

Select the number of desired bins in the histogram using the number of labvview control. First ensure you have the NI-Serial driver installed.

Place Controls onto the Panel using the Unplaced items box. Make sure you have the right GPIB address specified and you should get something back What I need is to be able to set the Kepco power supply to 0 when the button is pressed aborting obviously won’t do this? It is that, first you should tell us what you need to do.

Back to Top 7. Then click the green Run arrow at the top left of the VI. The COM port will not show up in the Hardware tab. Rename each control to match the measurement that’s being configured, “Voltage Manual Range” for example.


Reposition controls on the Diagram for Configure Output and Enable Output nodes to make room for extra controls. I can get the scan to work, but the trigger seemes to have no effect. Regarding this while loop, I ve answered in my previous post. Install Keithley Series Instrument Driver Keithlwy develops and supports thousands of Instrument Drivers for 3 rd party instruments to help engineers and scientists automate measurements.

There are so many ways to program with strings to achieve what you want. NI TestStand is at the top of a oeithley architected test system. The combination of power and precision allows you to use the same instrument for both high power sweeps and low current measurements; while the addition of a high-speed update rate and sampling rate allow you to use the instrument in non-traditional ways, such as generating and measuring a waveform.

Right Click the Autozero terminal and select Labvieq control.

Open these examples using the following procedure. The instrument will then be detected.
