Read dispaly of a 6960b POWER METER

Hi am attempting to read a measurment from a Marconi/IFR/Aeroflex 6960B power meter.


I have had a good look in the manual but am unable to see what the GPIB command is to read the display.


Would anyone have a example VI or know the command to do this would be greatly appriciated?

There's a CVI driver here and normally you could convert a CVI driver to a LabVIEw one but first someone with would have to create a dll from the source code. You could, however, look at the source code and see what commands are being used to control the instrument and read data from it.

Hi Cally,


Have you considered using the Instrument I/O Assistant in LabVIEW?  If you know the commands or if the vendor can give you some direction, then the Instrument I/O Assistant may be a good way to get you started.




Best regards,
