LV driver for 6487

Post by Hussainbarakaty » May 7th, 2014, 3:33 am

I bought keithley 6487 few months ago and still in trouble getting it works as i want. :(

I want to control the keithley using LabView 2013 program. I started with ke485 driver but after long time trying to get it work I got only frustration. :cry:. From discussion on the NI board and here, it seems the driver is old and does not support keithley 6487 instrument. So, I gave up this driver.

Now I found on this board that 6514 driver is close to 6487. this the link(http://forum.keithley.com/phpBB3/viewto ... t=29040).I want to know if somebody have tried it before and happy to share his experience. Does the driver need modification to work with 6487 or it is plug and play.

Also, if you now something better, please let me know.

Many thanks in advance

Searching for '6487' and 'software driver' on the support pages of the Keithley site leads to

Please have a look at the drivers' release notes chapter 2 - here the system requirements are stated.

Thank you

This document is about the keithleu I/O layer, which used with IVI driver. I am looking for a LV driver, which seems to be a bit old. Please correct me if I am wrong.
