6514 takes long time to Configure in ExceLINX

Post by hudamon » July 22nd, 2016, 9:58 am

After we complete the Keithley Configuration Panel Wizard, we then go to Configure Meter in ExceLINX and press start the device is displaying "CONFIGURING" for a long time like it has frozen. How can we solve this problem? we are using RS 232 to USB

Another problem we downloaded the Coolterm Software and try to send commands to the device but it seems the device is not reading the command. Sometimes it shows Error "110" or "113". Based on the manual Error 110 is invalid Character and Error 113 is undefined header.Also, the TX would light up but not the RX How can we solve this problem also?

Sounds to me like the RS-232 is timing out.
Is the 6514 set to RS-232?
Are the RS-232 parameters of the 6514 matched to the com port parameters on the computer?
I would look at the Flow control and terminator. These must match.
