I am looking for the option to change the compliance of the Keithley 2401 in labview.

How I can do this?

If you use the driver found here -


Then when you configure the sense options one of the parameters is to set the compliance.


The SCPI command is something like..


Smiley FrustratedENS:CURRSmiley TongueROT 10E-3


To set a 10mA compliance when sourcing voltage or..


Smiley FrustratedENS:VOLTSmiley TongueROT 10


To set a 10V compliance when sourcing current.


Read the manual to get the limits of the compliance right if you are using a fixed range measurement.

I thank you very much

Unfortunately I did not find driver for the configuration of the sense options.

Can you help me with this?

If you download the driver, look at the VI tree and select the VI "Configure" then one of the outputs is the compliance level.
