It triggers randomly, like autotrigger. Message 8 of 9. Have you taken a look at the set of data that’s being read in any way other than the graph? While the LabVIEW instrument driver for the A itself does not include ready-to-run example programs, there are three ready-to-run example programs available from www.

Agilent Technologies / Keysight Technologies 3458A

The driver includes a full set of functional building blocks that 348a be used to create a completely custom A application in LabVIEW. This site uses cookies to offer you a better browsing experience.

This instrument driver will allow you to use your A, while having to do little or no low level VISA programming yourself. Quick Reference Guide, Edition 2, Dec Turn the termination character off for the VISA session before performing the scan and turn it back on after reading the scan. This can be useful to set delays in code to allow meter perform auto-calibration to minimize errors.

LabVIEW can also be used to interface with a 3458x management system, whether that consists of a simple spreadsheet file or a relational database. Message 4 of 5. I bet this is an issue with the termination character.


The Agilent A is a good instrumentation solution for manual bench top testing or multiple automated test equipment use cases. Message 3 of 9. Any custom LabVIEW application you create will be composed of a front panel, which is the graphical user interface, and a block diagram which is the flow chart-style code created with these functional blocks VIs.

Unlike other programming environments, all programming in LabVIEW is done graphically through intuitive flowchart-style coding and functional blocks. It’s a VISA property. Message 1 of 9.

Thousands of instrument drivers, including the driver for the Agilent A, are available for free download from ni. Message 9 of 9. That sounds like exactly the solution, but how to I do that?

For resources that outline the fundamentals of this industry-standard development environment, please refer to the links at the end of this section. Each routine that composes the driver corresponds to a programmatic operation such as configuring, reading from, writing to, or triggering the instrument.

Each palette represents a distinct category of instrument driver functions for programming the A. If you would like to support us by making a donation please click the Paypal button: Use a property node on the VISA reference.


I have a function generator connected to the delivering this waveform. Because creating crisp graphical user 3485a in LabVIEW is easy, we could have also chosen to visualize the data in a chart or graph.

How can I use Labview to read and control 3458A with 82357B?

Use the ready-to-run example programs for a simple measurement application with little development effort, or customize them to take advantage of the additional analysis and presentation capability of LabVIEW.

With the termination character on, any byte that is the termination character usually 0xA will cause the VISA Read to stop. Two instrument driver palettes are shown below, in Figure 2.

To save VFD life, you may want to output just empty spaces. So if you have a data point of 10, then the read will stop with that character. This article is focused on remote GPIB operation only. The paragraph in the latter vi is copied from the Agilent A driver notes, which doesn’t make sense to me. Rate this document Select a Rating 1 – Poor 2 3 4 5 – Excellent.
