2430 Driver Labview 2009 Problem

Post by araneve » December 16th, 2010, 10:51 pm


I am trying the example VI's for the 2430 in Labview 2009 (Read Single and Sweep and Measure vi from the NI examples library). However, I cannot get passed the error below:
Error -1073807346 occurred at VISA Write in Keithley 24XX.lvlib:Error Query.vi->Keithley 24XX.lvlib:Configure Measurement.vi->Keithley 24XX Read Single.vi
VISA: (Hex 0xBFFF000E) The given session or object reference is invalid.
Going in Configure Measure.vi to the Error Query.vi will get me an error below:
VISA Read in Keithley 24XX.lvlib:Error Query.vi->Keithley 24XX.lvlib:Configure Measurement.vi
I am a complete Labview noob so I could be overlooking things. I tried to verify the RS232 communication in MAX and I can send a write and read correctly and getting this when doing the ID query:
KEITHLEY INSTRUMENTS INC.,MODEL 2430,0791315,C27 Feb 4 2004 14:58:04/A02 /D/H\r
I also can get the 2000 DMM to work on its Labview example so I don't think it has something to do with the cable, PC, or Labview itself.

So, I would like to know if anyone has tried those examples and got it to work on their 2430. Is there a known issue with those drivers or with the 2430 when used in Labview? Are there any workarounds? I downloaded the Labview 2009 driver for the 2430 from the NI website. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
