Hi all - hope this is the right place.

I'm trying to control a Keithley 220 using LabVIEW - specifically just trying to get it to output a time-carrying current.

I've downloaded the LabVIEW library from the Tektronix website, but there is no manual, instructions or examples that I can spot - can anyone point me at some?

I've looked at the GPIB programmer's manual using a Google search, but really don't follow how to make that work

I am not aware of any Keithley created LabView drivers for this model. The Keithley 220 is a very old instrument, circa 1984. You may want to check with National Instruments as they may have created a LabView driver for this model.

But I downloaded the 220 drivers from your website - presumably these were made by Keithley?

What was the page you downloaded the drivers from? Can you include the url?

OK I see the driver for the 220. It is an old driver. Since the 220 was circa 1984, there is no on-going support for it. There may have been a user or programmers manual for the instrument itself that would at least have some of the programming commands.
