I found that there is an error in the configure sweep vi. It causes a syntax error message to show up on the ENA and causes it to beep. This occurs
in the example programs. Does anyone know if there is a fix for this?
here is a link to another discussion on agilents website discussing it.
Have you isolated the function that causes the error and the statement inside the function? You can run one function at a time and then look at the block diagram.
I have noticed another problem using the latest version of the Agilent ENA Series Labview instrument driver. Using the 5071C, I can configure the fixture simulator with no problem at all using the front panel of the instrument. When I try to automate this with the Configure Fixture Simulator.vi I get an error on the network an in the lower left-hand corner which says 'Option Not Installed' (and a 'beep'). I get the same response with many different permutations of inputs, and I think it has to do with port configurations and not handling the 2-port 5071C Case within this vi.
Seems the 5071C model has a BAL option which was not available in previous models (SBAL,BBAL, SSB).
You can try the VI below which includes the BAL option to see if it helps (possibly other modifications are required).
Thanks a lot, I will try this out. It would be great if NI could fix this driver so that we can distribute it across our network of test equipment more efficiently (rather than re-bundling a 'patched' driver)
If everything works correctly we can add this update to the driver on IDNet. Just let us know the results of your testing.
