KUSB-488B Keithley driver & Labtracer

I have successfully installed the driver for my new KUSB-488B, and chose the Keithley option when asked. The Diagnostic program confirms that I can communicate with my 2400, but when I run Labtracer it crashes with a VISA error. What is going wrong?

Error +800 Illegal with storage active

Hi, I'm using a Keithley 6485 to acquire a buffer of 40 measurements, triggered via triggerlink. The VI's work well, but, Of course what happens if no triggers are send to the device? So after a timeout the instrument is configured again, (reset, and the configuring commands). That's when the error ...

ACV input monitoring

Can I use the front panel input jacks to input 115vac line voltage and use one of your utility programs ( with pc) to monitor the ac line voltage over time and record the data say over a 24 hour period? If so do you have an application note that would be helpful? Thanks

Function is not retained when channel is closed

I have a scan list of several channels. There are two groups of channels each with their own function.
For example channel 101 through 105 are DCV and channel 106 through 110 are 2W resistance.
After the scan is set up I go to close a channel on the function is not retained.

Source current magnitude in resistance function

I have recently purchased your 3706 System Switch/Multimeter. Is there a way to control the source current or voltage from the Multimeter? It accurately measures the resistors I place inside so I assume there must be some sort of sourcing current or voltage to measure this resistance. I have downloa...
