There is no one driver that controls both the 2182A and 6221.
For the 2182A the Model 2182 driver is available at this link.

For the 6221 the driver is at this link.

How to sweep Nanoampere current in Keithley 6220 current source with Labview 8.6?

Post by pvrkaranth » August 22nd, 2016, 8:51 am

I am interfacing Keithley 6220 current source by Labveiw 8.6 through GPIB bus and KUSB 488A. I am using example VI which is provided with Keithley drivers for current sweep. I don’t have any problem in sweeping the current in micro or milliamps. But when try to sweep in nanoampere (even the step level in nanoampere), it shows error message “-222” which stands for “Parameter data out of range”.
Can anybody please help me to resolve this error to sweep in nanoampere (stop level as well as step level in nA). I am herewith attaching the the VI which I am using. Front Panel during run (which shows my controls) and the error message are also been attached.
Thanks in advance

I have run the Labview driver current sweep example from Labview driver ver 8.
It seems to run fine.
I tried it with
Start at 1e-9A
Stop at 1e-8A
Step at 1e-9A steps.
It worked with no trouble.
The driver is attached.
