I am working with the 872B vxi controller. I tried using the register write and read but don't get any results. I don't get errors. I would like to write to a specific location and read the same location. I should read what I wrote at the location. However, all I read is a zero. Anyone have any insight on what maybe happening?

I'd like to get some more information on your application.
Any other information on your configuration could help diagnose what's going on with your VXI system. Thanks.

I am sending the commands (VISA) via High level registers. The modue I am tring to write to is the slot 0 controller.
I am sending commands via "VISA Move out 16" to write and "VISA In 16" to read.
Hope that helps.

If you're programming in C, you can try this example to see if your results improve. If you are using LabVIEW, I would recommend trying this one. Otherwise, what software interface are you using to send/receive VISA commands (LabVIEW, Measurement & Automation Explorer, etc.) and can you post screenshots of your software configuration?
