I am trying to communicate with the Watlow F4 controller on a Tenney Enviornmental Chamber. The only port available is a GPIB port. I successfully installed the GPIB-USB-HS cable and I can see that device under MAX devices and interfaces. However, no instrument is found when scanning for instruments at defaults GPIB interface settings. I have also downloaded the Watlow F4 VI drivers and try to run from there. I got an Error-1073807346 occurred at VISA open in Watlow F4.lvlib:Initialize.vi-> Watlow F4 System set up.vi
I am using Labview 8.5.1 with 488.2, VISA, DAQmx installed.
Please see attached pictures for details. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks Turns out that the GPIB to Serial Board is not working properly as indicated by the LEDS. May need a replacement
