Getting labview working

The GPIB board finally came in. At the moment, we are running a copy of Labview 7 Evaluation, though the real one should come in a week or so. Through Keithley, you can download the 6430 BETA LabVIEW ver. 5.X driver for Windows, which, when unzipped, contains a library of Labview VIs for the Keithley 6430.

Make sure that the communication mode on the 6430 is set on GPIB, 488.1 (not SCPI) and click on "Keithley 6430 One-Shot Measure?". Run the instrument by clicking on the white go arrow, and you should see something like this:

That's great. The next step is to build our own continuous acquisition. Here's the block diagram.

First, do a Save As so that we don't write over the original.

Hmm - are you able to help with a Keithley Trigger Output configuration?

Thanks,
