Agilent B2912A SMU configure source.vi error

Hi,

 

I am trying to control a Agilent b2912A SMU via labview.

 

When trying to run the example programmes that come with the agilent b2900 drivers (specifically: Agilent B2900 Series Output List Sweep Volts.vi), I recieve a -1074000000 error from the configure source.vi block. I dont understand why I am getting this error from an example program. I have connected via gpib that I know works.image.png

Hi AEB,

 

did you select the correct VISA resource?

Best regards,

Hi, The Visa location is all correct, the error is arising from the configure source.vi, I looked at its block diagram and the error is coming from error query.vi.

Hi AEB,

 

I don't have your specific device driver installed, but checked the Agilent driver coming with LabVIEW by default: in the ErrorQuery function that error is set if any other error occurs before.

 

So the question is: which error occurs before "-1074000000" is set as error?

Best regards,
GerdW

Hi there,

 

I believe it is from a 1073807339 error from timeout. Does this mean there is a problem with GPIB connection.

 

What can I do to omit this error?

 

Thanks again for your help

Many people have ERRORS with this driver. I write many times to "instruments drivers" link and no solution only promises.

With KEYSIGHT example work and with NI drivers no work.

In last time interaction with NI teams extremely difficult.

 

See KEYSIGHT example working in LabVIEW:

With NI DRIVERS not work:

About me the problem appear with the string send to B2912A.

I put one supplementary indicator to evidence this string!

I'm pleased to inform you that the reported issue has been successfully addressed, and the updated driver is now available for download. The resolution involved fixing the 'Undefined Header' error by incorporating the complete SCPI command in the "Configure Source.vi."
