VISA / GPIB library for AutoIt3

Recommended Posts

Are you sure that you are using exactly the right settings for the serial interface (bitrate, stop bits, parity, etc)?

Angel

Yes, I'm really sure of that. I'm currently running HP Vee (predecessor of Agilent Vee) with exactly the same settings.

I want to use AutoIt because it's much easier to generate a measurement tool with it then Agilent.

In AutoIt a small script can do the thing and with Agilent I need a few pages of full of blocks to become the same result.

Therefore I hope you can check a serial VISA interface in the near future, because It really is a great thing If I could work with AutoIt for programming with Visa!!

Thanks for the support and hopefully you have a solution soon.

The problem is that I don't really have access to an instrument that uses RS-232 (while I have access to GPIB instruments). Have you had a look at the library functions. There I basically just followed what the VISA spec says, but perhaps I made some mistake on the ASRL (serial) part. Maybe you could have a look as I cannot really test it on my own :o

Hi Angel,

I am trying to program an Agilent 6612c power supply and set it to 4.5 volts and current set to 2A., but I'm not sure on how to do this using your script. Any pointers?

Thanks in advance! :think:

Newmax,

Can you give me an idea of what you want your 6612c to do? I can write you a quick script to get you going; I just need a basic runthrough of your needs.

I am new to autoit, tried this and could not get it to work.

I placed the visa.au3 in a directory

I amade a new file form the examples in it

i made sure to have the #include "visa.au3"

when i ran my expample it did not work, got a windows error ?

The GPIB with visual basic and Agilent software all works I can look and read write to the gpib devices.

any clues ?

Hello,

Nice to see "visa.au3"

Questions:

-From where download the dll that works with this UDF?
-Serial communication (RS232/ USB-COM port) has been tested and working?

Thank

I've had good result using the driver supplied by National. But it has been some time ago already, I can't point you towards a guaranteed working package.

Greetings all..as of this post, I can say that the VISA.udf is working through USB to a Keysight U2000A Power Sensor. I am using the Visa32.dll installed by Keysights IOsuite software from their website.
