Doing a hysteresis sweep with 2400

Post by thentangler » July 10th, 2012, 10:24 am

Hi,
I am writing a Labview program to operate the 2400 to do a I-V hysteresis sweep. (i.e) to run from 0V to 1V to -1V and back to 0V.
I have the instrument drivers for building the VI in Labview but am unable to find the option to do the hysteresis measurement.
Is it possible? If not how would I go about doing this?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thank You

Yes, this can be done using the "custom" sweep feature. You can program the number of measurements in the sweep and source level of each point.
Please refernce the 2400 users manual for more information.

Hi Mark.
Thank You for the reply.
The Read.vi contains the sweep mode. And the configure output sweep.vi contains whether the sweep should be ascending or descending. Is that what you are talking about?
Also How do I use the Abort.vi to abort a measurement int eh middle?
Once the read.vi is triggered, it runs the measurements based on the configurations specified, How to I continuously poll a boolean to see if a stop button is pressed, then run the abort.vi in the middle of a measurement?
Thank You for the help.
