With the VISAIC utility, you can speed up application development by learning how to automate measurements with your instruments, uncover GPIB problems, and avoid headaches by identifying malfunctioning instruments. Using your computer, you can take advantage of this powerful development and debugging tool to interactively communicate read, write, serial poll, and so on with your GPIB instruments. Contact your network administrator to determine whether your network supports DHCP or if you need to manually perform the Ethernet configuration to set up the network parameters. The basic functions and concepts described above may seem simple; however, they can be invaluable in troubleshooting and getting your GPIB system up and running. I hope this helps out. If your network uses DHCP, the network configuration is performed automatically at startup. Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to your Ethernet network.

With this test panel, you can set properties for your instrument communication as well as read and write to the instrument. No other special device files are needed. Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to your Ethernet network.
Instrument Control (GPIB, Serial, VISA, IVI)
This is indicated by an exclamation point! Note, the Linux kernel is something of a moving target. Auto-suggest helps you quickly narrow down your search results by suggesting possible matches as you type. All devices on an Ethernet network are assigned a unique physical address—the Ethernet address—so they can communicate with each other. With the old drivers for the PC cards, spec supports the 0.
Next, you can go the directory with the extracted linux-gpib sources and execute the commands:. This indicates that you should check for loose or disconnected cables, power disruption, or a malfunctioning instrument. The basic functions and concepts described above may seem simple; however, they can be invaluable in troubleshooting and getting your GPIB system up and running.
Installing GPIB-ENET/ Controllers – National Instruments
Beginning with release 0. Refresh the list of devices, after the device reboots, to verify that the hostname is now valid. If only one instance of spec is using the GPIB interface, then one can avoid a little overhead by selecting the non-shared configuration.
Installing such drivers may conflict with spec ‘s use of the board. But I am not able to see the device controller when I run “NIvisaic” and search for resources. No additional software needs to be installed and no additional modules or libraries need to be linked with spec.
Once you have determined the GPIB address of your instruments, it is easy to establish communications to verify that you can send and receive data to and from the instrument. These productivity tools help you focus on developing your test applications instead of trying to track down obscure problems or establishing communications with your instruments.
Once you have completed these steps, you need a fast way to progress from interactive mode to programming mode so you can immediately begin writing your tests without a tedious transition process. To communicate with your instrument at Address 4, follow these instructions:. When running the configuration editor, select either of the following options for the PCI cards: Even though the text reads “Nat Inst with cib.
If there is a problem, you no longer see your device.
The Ethernet address is not the IP address. Alternatively, system power may be disrupted for a variety of reasons or the actual instrument may begin to malfunction. Run the Ethernet Device Configuration Utility.
For either subnet mask, numbers between 1 and are valid choices for the last number of the IP address. Instruments typically respond with the manufacturer’s name, model name, and various alphanumeric characters that the manufacturer uses to track firmware revisions. To correct the problem with the hostname, complete the following steps:. If your network uses DHCP, the network configuration is performed automatically at startup, and you do not need to run this utility unless you want to change the hostname.
