ID CODE -113

I have a small problem.
I have making measurement with model 2400, but everytime I get a error -113 and I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

string send to Keithley is something like this:
:SOUR:CURR 0.001

Thank you

Hi Nighthunter,

The most common cause for a -113 error is a simply syntax problem.

I ran each of your commands to a 2400 and do not see any -113 troubles.
I did experience a -221 Settings conflict when sending the :SOUR:CURR 0.001 command. This is because the instrument is on a 100uA source range and the command is asking for 1mA of source current.

Can you single step through your program and isolate which command is the offender? You probably have a missing quote or something simple.

One suggestion: first send a *RST command to put the instrument into a known state.
When the instrument is in the *RST state, source auto range is enabled. This state then allows the instrument to automatically change to an appropriate source range for the :SOUR:CURR 0.001 command.
