Now, I try running the Configure Source and Measure. Anyway I have a new error while running the Advance Sweep. Your Content I want to make interface between keithley A source meter and lakeshore temperature controller. This is a 2 channel meter, and my plan is to sweep one channel from 0 to 5 volts and measure the voltage it is sourcing, while the other channel is swept from mV to mV so no change in voltaage and measure the current coming through. I dont have much experience about this.

Message 2 of The issue I am having is with the sync between Channel A and CHannel B, it seems one channel is running faster than the other even though there is no delay in theory. On my computer – Albview I know this post is old but had the same problem and fixed it.

Message 4 of 5. I opened them with labview.

Do you want an interface between the two devices? Message 4 of In order to synchronize Channel A and B, you need to share a keithleg and a trigger.


And what is its unit? Message 3 of 5. My VISA’s version is 4. Auto-suggest helps you quickly narrow down your 263a results by suggesting possible matches as you type. If you don’t see a way to do this, you may just want to add a delay to the channel that is going first.

Also when i include negative voltages in my sweep say like if im sweeping from -2 to 2 then the current values in between go to e-8 range which cannot happen as my resitor value iss 2. I’d recommend using the RS port. We really can’t help without some specifics. Message 3 of I need to make interface so that i can collect data through simple commands.

I hae used the labview drivers of keithley It’s just a simple: I was trying to send commands that interfered with the measurement before it was done.

Anyway I now that I’m back, here’s what I managed so far:.

Keiyhley Data Bit on Keithley was 8 bit while the program was defaulted to 7 bit. With the second cable, you then connect the two instruments in series with the PC.

I found the following post on a Keithley forum that seems to cover the same error: I have one gpib cable. Anyway, what value does the Advance Sweep return anyway? Message 8 of keithlye Well, I’ve been busy with my exams so I couldn’t reply immediately.

Navigating a new driver ieithley be frustrating if you are not use to the nuiances of vi drives. Did you rectify that problem, if so, how did you do it.?

Most Active Software Boards: You can also use a GPIB interface: Or did you need to coordinate a communication scheme with them from a PC? Message 9 of Message 1 of 4.
