I am using VISA commands to control an agilent E3633a DC power supply given some other commands in a for loop. Every time I write with a VISA command, which is inside a for loop, the power supply beeps and it is beyond annoying. There is no errors that I can find in the VI or on the power supply, is there a write command to make this thing stop?
I don't want to have to resort to doing a hardware fix but I am open to new ideas.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I can imagine that the beeping is annoying. Has the DC power supply ever not beeped when you issue VISA commands? Does it beep when you issue a single command?
Are you able to see that there are no errors on the power supply from pressing the Error key on the front panel of the power supply?
I have figured it out since yesterday: I wasn't reading buffers in after measuring the voltage/ current to the device. The beeping was the errors that the power supply was facing, not the code. I found the manual and looked up the errors and syntax and no more beeping! SO relieved.
