Re: Cannot get Keithley 2701 recognized in NI MAX

Is your instrument setup with a fixed IP? Is DHCP turned off? If necessary you might need to directly connect your instrument to your pc using a cross-over cable to eliminate network performance problems. In this situation, be sure you can ping the instrument and see it's webpage before testing wit...

Re: Cannot get Keithley 2701 recognized in NI MAX

0xBFFF0011 is a timeout (the device did not answer of the addressing is incorrect. Not sure why the resource would already be present in NI-VISA Interactive control...unless you saved this device somewhere...perhaps in NI Max. I would suggest at the bottom of the screen in the "Resource to Open" ar...

Re: Cannot get Keithley 2701 recognized in NI MAX

NI-VISA is a required component of LabVIEW. If this was not installed or was somehow uninstalled, then you should download and install it. I have opened VISA Interactive control, and there is something listed as "unknown" that follows the same format as you described, except it is TCPIP0, and I am ...

Re: Cannot get Keithley 2701 recognized in NI MAX

Good that you can ping the instrument, that is a start... Can you also view the webpage for the 2701 in your browser? If yes, can you open Visa Interactive Control and successfully open a resource session? The format will be something like this: TCPIP::nnn.xxx.yyy.zzz::1394::SOCKET Also, what is th...

Cannot get Keithley 2701 recognized in NI MAX

I am trying to set up my 2701 in Labview but I am not able to add it when I attempt to create a new VISA TCP/ICP resource in NI MAX. I am trying to add it using the Manual Entry of Raw Socket option, using port number "1394" like I have seen in other forums which seemed to have worked for others. Bu...

Voltage Reading Doesn't Stabilize 2701

I am trying to set up my Keithley 2701 to measure a voltage output from a photo-diode. The photo-diode is connected to the 2701 with a BNC to banana plug cable that has 50 Ohms impedance. When I turn on the 2701 the voltage reading just keeps climbing from -1 mV even when there is no light shining i...
