GW Instek GPT-9800 Series Drivers?

The GW Instek GPT-9804 is an electrical safety test meter that does AC/DC withstanding, insulation resistance and grounded chassis check tests for products that will be UL or CE certified.  I'd like to buy one of these for our production line and will pick this model for sure if there are any LabVIEW drivers already created for it.  It's basic SCPI stuff to roll my own but I figure it can't hurt to ask on my favorite forum if it means I can avoid re-inventing the wheel.

 

Anybody out there have or know of drivers for this beast or similar model???  I've checked the NI IDN and searched the web with no luck so far.

 

Thanks & Regards!

Hi NIquist,

 

I wasn't able to find a LabVIEW driver for the GW Instak GPT-9804. Are there other similar devices you've considered?

 

Please let me know if you have any further questions.

 

Thank you,

Hi Emily,

Thanks for taking the trouble to look, I appreciate your help.  This model is already being purchased so I'm going to have to write my own driver code.  IF I do a decent job I'll post it to the IDN for others to use...  But don't hold your breath. Smiley Embarassed

 

Thanks Again!

Well strangely I did find LabVIEW drivers for these units right on the download page of the companies website.  Their app note even requests that users comment on the driver in NI IDN even though they're not posted there. Smiley Frustrated 

 

The drivers are well written and have examples and palette files for easy use.  They are available for 8.5.1 and 2011.

 

Just in case anyone else searches for these on the forum here's a link:

Go to the GWInstek site https://www.gwinstek.com/en-global, select Resources->Download, Select Search by Category: Safety Testers, Safety Testers (Hi-Pot Testers), GPT-9800 Electrical Safety Tester. Et voila!

There are two LabVIEW drivers, one for LabVIEW 8.5 only and one for LabVIEW 2011 and later.

Hi,

 

Thank you for your response.

 

I downloaded the those drivers and tried already but due to some reason. I am not able to check in labVIEW instruments driver and not able to communicate with the instruments.
