VISA set-up

Go to solution

I don't see my instrument in the VISA resource name selection box in the Labview example "Agilent 34970 EZ" , my instrument is an Agilent 34970A.  The only possible choices are "COM3" or "Refresh".

I have the same problem with other instrument.  There seems to be something missing for the instrument to be detected correctly ??  Any help would be greatly appreciated.


PS. My 34970A is connected through a 82357B GPIB to USB adapter and I've configured the instrument driver with the "Keysight Connection Expert".

You need to configure your GPIB adapter to show up in MAX.


Have a look at this old thread:


There's a number of solutions there, I expect one will probably make it appear in MAX and then your device will be detected under it.

You need to enable the Tulip Passport in NI-MAX
