Re: DMM6500/DAQ6510 Voltage Measurement bug

Apologies for the delay in response. In short, this is not a bug but a deficiency in documenting the proper application/usage of the Secondary function. Because no barriers were put up to prevent the DCV+DCI pairing it was assumed that this would be applicable without any impact to performance. This...

Re: How to set a single trigger and extract measurements from buffer

Is the readback measurement 1e38 or 9.9998e37? This would indicate an overflow or over-range condition. What is the anticipated signal level?

Re: "KickStart has stopped working" message

A couple questions: 1. Is this the same test that has been running for months or are you encountering new errors for new runs? 2. How many runs are captured in the Run History for a single project? 3. Are you able to share all the data logger settings or can you share the KS project via email? 4. Wh...

DAQ6510 Script to Control TestEquity Environmental Chambers

Monitoring the conditions (temperature, voltage, etc.) of your device under test (DUT) is made easy with the DAQ6510, but what about automating the setup of environmental conditions? This is a definite possibility when pairing the DAQ with one of the TestEquity environmental chambers. In this latest...

FYI... Keithley 2380 - Extra Step to Full Remote Operation

It is not abundantly clear in the programming manual, but there are some additional commands you should be aware of when writing your automation code for remotely controlling your 2380 DC Electronic Load. SYSTem:REMote //This command sets the electronic load to remote control mode. SYSTem:LOCal // T...

FYI... Keithley 2380 - Using the Remote Sense Feature

We had a customer let us know that the SYSTem:SENSe:STATe command - for enabling/disabling the remote sense feature - was not working. We confirmed this. The correct commands for set and query, unfortunately found to be undocumented to date, are as follows: [SOURce:]REMote:SENSe[:STATe] 0|1|ON|OFF [...

Re: starting further scans while another one is already running

Unfortunately, no - no way to augment an active scan without interruption. This is due to buffer sizing and memory allocation/organization. The last thing we want to do is to corrupt your data in any way. Some things to consider... First, if your scan is not running excessively or having a Scan to S...

Model 2231A-30-3 Python Programming Example

We had to address an application involving using the 2231A and I used Python + PyVISA to control. No point on sitting on working code when someone might make use of it. The example is very simple and provides the following: * Connect to the instrument * Disconnect from the instrument * Select channe...

Something to note as well: the LabVIEW driver that we have made available via tek.com at the 2220/2230/2231 page states that it is for Models 2220 and 2230. In testing this out at my bench, I had usage/connectivity issues when attempting to use with the 2231A - I got failures/error from the Initiali...

Hi, M.
