Agilent PNA E8364B

Dear all,

 

I like to use Labview to control my Agilent PNA E8364B to save the waveform (at various measurement points).

 

A local Labview technical support has given me the example "Labview - GPIB Example.vi", and we managed to establish the connection between Labview and the Agilent device. This is achieved using the *IDN? command and we managed to get back a message. However, I understand that this is a very low level method of communications, where we read/write to the registers.

 

Separately, a local Agilent technical support provided me with "Example1.vi", but I am a bit unsure if this example provides any "high-level" communication methods. Can anyone advise on this?

 

Thanks!

I can understand Agilent being clueless but anyone from NI should have skipped that example and simply told you to download the driver by going to the LabVIEW menu Tools>Instrumentation>Find Instrument Drivers. What a driver is and how to use one can be found at the Instrument Driver Network

We have a LabVIEW driver available for that model
