Solved!

Hi

I am trying to interface 2470 Keithley meter with PC via LabView 2017 using GPIB. GPIB address appears properly but when I execute the initialize VI, it gives attached error.

I am attached error pic and VI, please help me how I can resolve this issue.

This error is given from your Keithley device. You need to read its manual to learn the meaning of that "error -113"…

According to the error message the error happens in the Reset.vi function. This means that the enabled *IDN? query actually seems to work, so the GPIB interface is not entirely dysfunctional. But what GPIB interface are you using?

 

And can you startup NI Spy in NI-Max and capture the actual GPIB transactions and attach the NI Spy log to your next post?

SCPI error -113 is common to all devices and just means "unrecognized command".  

 

It looks like you're using the "24XX" library, which you would think would work for a 2470, but it actually doesn't.  24XX is for models 2400 through 2440.  You need the 2450 library, which is for models 2450 through 2470.
