However, some instruments also have associated condition and transition registers. Thank you very much for your attention. Have a great day! Message 4 of Instrument Error Handling Some cases of Watching and Responding to Events If combined with a polling operation, can be used for other situations.

As mentioned earlier, the use of a long timeout is simple to conceptualize and implement.

Right after that you read the answer from your instrument with the GPIB Rate this document Select a Rating 1 – Poor 2 3 4 5 – Visq. However, VISA also allows for notification of other events, such as interrupts on register-based instruments.

34401q got some code there only for the assuming the visa referecne is correct and you’re asking for the voltage not current. Message 5 of Query synchronization is when you want to ensure that the instrument response is ready to be read before retrieving the data from the instrument agilfnt buffer.

If performance is a concern, you might want to minimize instrument control within the loop. Use enable registers to determine which instrument events assert a service request.

The READ command instructs the instrument to transfer the measurement data to the output buffer after each measurement.

A serial poll is not compatible with all bus interfaces. Refer to Read with Temporary Timeout — simple.

With instrument error handling, you respond to error events in the Standard Event Status Register. Besides being more efficient than an instrument query, you can also use a serial poll while an instrument query is pending.

However, whenever I try to validate, i get the following message: Most message-based instrument communication is just a series of simple synchronous writes or queries to your instrument. You are now following this question You will see updates in your activity feed.

Using Instrument Status Registers and Service Requests in LabVIEW

Message 10 of As many posts have said, a timeout error can have numerous causes. Check that you are using afilent correct cable.

It is a good idea to discard events after you have enabled events to ensure that you are starting with an empty event queue. There are easier ways to handle an overload condition, but checking for overload condition with service requests helps illustrate how you might handle instrument events that may or may not occur. You can perform the query explicitly using a command query or through a serial poll operation.

Agileht standard event status enable register SESER defines which bits in the associated 34401q are used generate a summary flag to set the “standard event” bit in the status byte register. In addition to the core IEEE The front panel wi ll allow you to select the function you want to do, including DC current.


The block diagrams of these “learn” examples typically use low-level VISA commands. Message 8 of Serial poll is a special bus operation where the instrument controller obtains the status byte register value. Look for the appropriate SCPI-commands in your manual.

You can now ask the instrument for the currently measured data i. Thank you very much for your attention.

The query status approach is nothing more than sending query commands to the instrument agilenr read the instrument status registers.

The block diagram code in Figure 7 shows how simple this can be. Because many instrument status registers are unique to a given instrument, this application note focuses on the core registers used in IEEE The response to the query is a decimal value that corresponds to the binary-weighted sum of all the bits in the register.
