In the example above it signals that a device is not connected and that the query will be repeated, once it is connected the message will disappear. This bit is set if the device has been previously queried for data and the device has a pending data message to send. Instruments typically respond with the manufacturer’s name, model name, and various alphanumeric characters that the manufacturer uses to track firmware revisions. Also you don’t need to remember what device is on what GPIB address. The main thing that VISA gives you is portability.

In the complete version probably rarely needed the callback function will be called to signal the status of the operation however there will be no valid data in the IOquery variable passed to it.
Maybe, in cases when a very big amount of data is to be read, one could prefer to limit the buffer size so vosa to split readings in several parts in order to free the bus in between, so to make it more often available for other devices. Our instrument should return an identification string.
The time needed to get the response is not only function of the size of data to transfer, usually the slowest response is expected for commands that trigger a measurement, such as the commonly used “Read” command of DMM’s. Message 4 of 9.
Tms; try to set it to a longer value and recompile the IODevices assembly. Thus, you should enable the session for events not just immediately before calling viWaitOnEventbut before the device has even been triggered or configured to generate a service request event.
A test program is using a pc’s dedicated serial port.
This article relies largely or entirely on a single source. Please help improve this article by introducing citations to additional sources.
The sequential querying will take time which causes problem if we need to periodically scan many devices. It should be quite easy to create implementations for other hardware. I inherited a batch of GPIB controllers from another division. This whole sequence can be implemented asynchronously if the query on the second device will be called from the callback function handling the query of device 1. In this code the default settings for interfacelockid follow this general philosophy:.
Computer buses Electronic test equipment. Harrison Walker 2-Jun 6: Again following the object-oriented philosophy, it is easier to write a derived class for each specific configuration than to make a class which would take into account all available options.
GPIB-to-VISA Migration – GPIB-to-VISA Migration – National Instruments
What was the address string you set and the error message? Views Read Edit View history. Other MathWorks country sites are not optimized for visits from your location.
The constructor of each of these classes will throw an exception if the device initialization fails. Message 8 of ggpib. The SerialPort class instance members are not quite thread-safe but since in this code we never have two threads talking to the same COM port at the same time gpi serial interface locking can be disabled too.
The IODevices namespace which should be imported to the application defines the following classes:.
3. VISA and VISA Tools
All Examples Functions Blocks Apps. A GPIB instrument in a production test rack goes bad.
The Notify feature is not available in this library therefore EnableNotify is not implemented here. Excellent background info backed up with references.
Which VISA is actually used by your application depends on the application type:. To add a few more advantages: More than 35 of the largest instrumentation companies in the industry endorse VISA as the standard. NullReferenceException’I am not sure if that is due to the fact that SendAsync does not read anything back so the response is always null or if it actually is an error.
See the description of the class IODevice for more details on the implementation and use of this feature.
