I have an existing setup that controls an Agilent 34970A and wanted to add a power supply(BK Precision 1786B).
The power supply has a NI certified driver, so I thought the example VIs would work when I installed the driver, but they don't and I could use some help figuring out what's wrong.
Some details/things i've investigated:
I'd appreciate any input on what could be wrong/steps I could take to get the power supply working with Labview.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks for posting in the National Instruments forums! In order to receive the best support, however, you should re-post this in the Instrument Control forum. Since this is the LabVIEW forum, you won't get as much visibility on your question.
Apparently, however, you aren't the first to have trouble with this driver. When you try and communicate with it, what is the response that you see? Does it generate an error, or just nothing happens? If you reply to this message with a link to the new forum post I can answer you there.
Thank you for the suggestion. I wasn't aware there was a better forum for this issue. I've reposted it here.
The device just doesn't show up under the "VISA resource name" box on the front panel of the manufacturer's example VI. So I am unable to communicate with it.
