UT803 Uni-Trend Bench Multimeter Driver

Hi!

 

I write this in the edge of desperation for I´m REALLY new to LabView

I´m trying to use the UT803 Uni-Trend bench multimeter for data acquisition in LabView through RS232

I started searching on how to do it, and came to this posts

in this post:

http://forums.ni.com/t5/Discussions-de-produit-de-NI/Passage-RS232-vers-USB/m-p/1548790

the user says he developed his own IV for the multimeter, I reply the post trying to reach him but he´s not online since like 2008 so I guess he won´t reply soon

So I searched for the driver and found this one

http://sine.ni.com/apps/utf8/niid_web_display.download_page?p_id_guid=5A2A9076B4C65AEBE04400144F1EF8...

which is for the UT804 Multimeter. I tried to use it but I don´t really know how. I just copied it to the <LabVIEW>\instr.lib like they show in here

http://www.ni.com/devzone/idnet/inetinst.htm

and now I can see the Functions -> Instrument I/O -> Instrument Drivers -> UT804 Multimeter. But when I´m to use it I´m totally lost

Having done that I searched for the driver of the UT803 from the Manufacturer CD like they say in here

http://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/ut60e/m-p/172930

but there´s no DLL file, so I searched it in their homepage to see it they provided it online

http://www.uni-trend.com/UT803.html

but still no DLL to use in the driver wizard.

Having done that I looked for how to control the RS232 "Manually" so I looked in these post on how to do it

(This one in Chinese is called:) RS-232接電表一直出現錯誤 

but still no clue

I did quite a research, but still I´m a starter so I guess without knowledge I can´t do much.

Can anyone help me? please I really need to get this multimeter to work 

 

Thank you in advance

I'm sorry, but this question is off-topic for this board, which discusses driver development for NI hardware. Please move it to the Instrument Control board.

Hey no worries 🙂 The NI boards are pretty expansive, and it can be difficult to choose which one to ask -- especially when after you type your query, you only get a drop-down to select the board. 'Driver Development Kit' sounds like it would match your question on first pass 😉

 

Just post a link to your question in the IC board, so that folks that search can see where it went.
