Hi, 

I am looking for a paid or free course online for LabVIEW instrument control that covers topic like  communication protocols, RS232. GPIB etc. Can anyone suggest a good one. Thank You.

      I am experiencing numerous VISA Lock Errors (-1073807345) on resources I haven't explicitly locked.  This is happening on TCPIP connections to keysight N6700 power supplies and keysight N5242 PNA fairly regularly.
      I have simultaneous loops in the application communicating to the different instruments, using a sequencer of sorts to pipe commands one at a time to each of my various loops.
      Has anyone seen the locking error pop before while not actually using the Lock and Unlock VIs?  This issue has gotten worse lately and it has come time to find the root cause.  My only thoughts are that it may have something to do with having NI MAX and Keysight Connection Expert both installed and possibly trying to "ping" these devices.  Every once in a while me sending commands and these "pings" may clash and cause the locking error.
      Error reads as follows:
      "Specified type of lock cannot be obtained, or specified operation cannot be performed, because the resource is locked. VISA error code -1073807345 (0xBFFF000F)"
      We are using LabVIEW 2013
      Thanks in advance!

      View File Plasmionique Modbus Master
      This package contains the Plasmionique Modbus Master library for LabVIEW.
      It supports RTU, ASCII and TCP modes with the following function codes:
      0x01 - Read Coils
      0x02 - Read Discrete Inputs
      0x03 - Read Holding Registers
      0x04 - Read Input Registers
      0x05 - Write Single Coil
      0x06 - Write Single Register
      0x07 - Read Exception Status
      0x0F - Write Multiple Coils
      0x10 - Write Multiple Registers
      0x16 - Mask Write Register
      0x17 - Read/Write Multiple Registers
      0x2B/0x0E - Read Device Identification
      Other features include:
      - Sharing a COM port across multiple Modbus sessions using VISA locks (10 second timeout).
      - Sharing a Modbus session across multiple communication loops.
      - TCP transaction ID handling to ensure that requests and responses are matched up correctly in case responses are received out of order.
      - Modbus Comm Tester, available through the "Tools->Plasmionique" menu, for testing communication with a slave device without writing any code. 
      - Detailed help document available through the "Help->Plasmionique" menu.
      Examples are included in "<LabVIEW>\examples\Plasmionique\MB Master\":
      MB_Master Comm Tester.vi: Demonstrates usage of API to open/close connection and communicate with a Modbus slave device. MB_Master Multiple Sessions.vi: Demonstrates usage of API to open concurrent Modbus sessions. MB_Master Simple Serial.vi: Demonstrates polling of a single input register over serial line. Download a copy of the user guide here: MB_Master - User Guide.pdf
      Note that Version 1.3.4 of this library has been certified compatible with LabVIEW and has been released on the LabVIEW Tools Network: http://sine.ni.com/nips/cds/view/p/lang/en/nid/214230
      The most recent version of this library will always be released on LAVA first before going through NI's certification process.

      I have a Thermotron test chamber with an 8200 controller to which I'd like for LabVIEW to talk. Basically, I only just need for LabVIEW to know the current set point of the Thermotron for whatever internal program it might be currently running. Only just that. Just so LabVIEW knows what it's trying to do at any particular moment. So LabVIEW can ask and get an answer.
      Our 8200 controller has TCP/IP and GPIB. But I've never yet done ought with either of those, only just RS-485 up until now. So I'm not sure just where to start.
      Anyone out there have helpful clues?

      I'm using a Labview Shared Library (DLL) to comunicate between a C# program (made by another company) and a labview Executeable (which means different processes) on the same PC. Currently i'm using network published shared variables, to communicate between the Labview DLL and the LABVIEW program (both made by me) which works well, except for the performance.
       
      Each time the DLL is called it needs to connect to the shared variable, which takes between 50 and 300 ms. When it is connected, the data transfer is instant. I have tried to use the PSP "Open Variable Connection In Background", which is a bit faster, because it doesn't wait to verify the connection. But it still adds some overhead.
       
      I have also tried to use notifiers from this example: https://lavag.org/topic/10408-communication-between-projects/ . Opening connection and sending the notifier takes 50 - 100 ms.
       
      I guess both the notifier and the shared variables are "slow" because they use the network communication, even if it is the same pc both programs are running on (localhost).
       
      Does any of you know of a faster method of communicating between a program that is running continuesly (connection open constantly) and one only exectuted when new data is ready (connection "re"-opened on every instance)?
       
      Thanks in advance.
       
      Best Regards
      Mads
