The waveform is not periodic. Can the VISA driver be fixed easily? Message 2 of 7. What is inside of the VIs that set the amplitude? The mark LabWindows is used under a license from Microsoft Corporation. Worked like a charm! Learn more about our privacy policy.

Automate Signal Generation From a Keysight/Agilent 33000 Function Generator With LabVIEW NXG

Hundreds of built-in functions are included with LabVIEW and the Agilent 33XXX series driver After placing the Configure Burst node, be sure to connect the purple instrument wire and the yellow error wire appropriately. Changing output amplitude on Agilent function generator while output is on.

Thinking back to when I used Agilent RF Generators, I could just set the amplitude or frequency and it wouldn’t turn off on me. I’d like to have the change be instantaneous. Is there any possibility that the waveform generator can only output a single period and than paused.

For this example, focus on the section between the Configure Arbitrary Waveform node and the Enable Output node.

You will need to rewrite this part of the driver keep it in your project library and leave the actual driver alone if this is abilent it works. Can the VISA driver be fixed easily? Glad to hear you got it working though. On A function generator, using RS RSbinary download of arbitrary waveform does not always work.


I opened the Configure Standard Waveform block and this is what it looks like:.

Most function generators have a built-in dc offset that can be added to any waveform. Log in to follow, share, and participate in this community. Auto-suggest helps you quickly narrow down your search results by suggesting possible matches as you type. It is likely they turn off the output and turn it back on. Select the PC from the SystemDesigner page. I am using the Keysight B series waveform generator to frequency sweep a pulse waveform.

This tool uses JavaScript and much of it will not work correctly without it enabled. You can then place items one by one on the panel.

However, it is still showing twice the set voltage. I have the programming guide for the generator, and I understand the idea of the command string that is fed to it, but tinkering around with this might be a waste of time for me since the IVI drivers work ok.


The 33xxx driver takes ms agilfnt change, and has a strange burst signal in between. Using Agilent 33xxx example: Thanks for the suggestion Mateus, but I am trying to automate this process as best I can.

Message 6 of 7. When I increase the amplitude, my function generator switches ranges and I hear a click.

This tool automatically detects USB hardware connected to your host PC and adds a labvieew representation to the window. Open these examples using the following procedure.

Agiletn Active Software Boards: Drop all the indicators and controls from the Unplaced items box on the panel. I have an arbitrary waveform stored in my A waveform generator.

I am trying to write a program to sweep amplitudes of a sine wave output from a function generator Agilent a. Why is the output voltage twice the value I set? You can connect your Agilent series function generator to your host PC using a method that works for your instrument. Accepted zgilent topic author jto2.
