Message 6 of GPIB error 6 is a timeout error. You may be trying to do things too quickly. If the error occurs on the first write, then the instrument is probably not responding. Loop until done or until an error or until stopped by the user. Message 2 of 8. Work with little pieces of the program at a time.

Proud to say that I’ve progressed beyond knowing just enough to be dangerous. Message 4 of Auto-suggest helps you quickly narrow down your search results by suggesting possible matches as you type.

Keithley 6514

My experience with Keithley GPIB Vis has been that they are useful in that they contain the code for most commands but their style and performance leave a lot to be desired. After exiting the loop, set the excitation to a safe value probably zero and do any other end of run housekeeping before ending the program. The scan may or may not list which instrument is which.

I do not like inputs on the right and outputs on the left.


Government regulation, Tektronix is required to review all software download activity. If you have any questions, please contact us at Well, it would nice if you posted the actual error code since I can’t run the VI because I don’t have the instrument.

Message 9 of LabVIEW driver for Inside the loop write the value of the excitation, wait long enough for the instruments to respond and the system to settle probably s of msand then read the response.

A state machine architecture is an excellent way to ksithley test like this. You did not give enough information.

Instrument Control (GPIB, Serial, VISA, IVI)

Can you post keithldy image no bmp please or the program itself? Message 8 of You have two different controls wired to two of the functions and nothing wired to the others. When you get problems with your VI, come back here, attach your VI with description what you tried, and what is your goal.

I want labview to basically be able to read the voltage values and plot it vs. Im trying to get a simple I-V plot.

Message 5 of 8. Try allowing several seconds. One thing is immediately obvious: Ok, I managed to get the driver via the German website of Keithley, I have attached it, unzip it into your instr.

I am rewriting all the VIs I need for other Keithley instruments.

When you get one part working, add another part. Try writing little programs that test each piece. That is all I can kejthley. I will take a look at the cleaned up vi.
