It would not hurt to put a return character or new line character on the trigger line. Let us know how it goes! When I issue the command I see the “Link” indicator on the BK appear for a few seconds and “sometimes” the unit switches into remote mode – mostly it just stays in the front-panel mode. Message 6 of What seems to be the issue you’re experiencing?

Thanks, Carl Dempsey Cadex Electronics.
Message 1 of Hi Carlos, Could you explain a bit more about what you mean by “byte start moves the AA”?. I find it to be quite prscision interesting and hopefully useful device for battery testing.
Has anyone programmed a BK precision in List Mode? My VI sends all the commands in order for this unit to operate in list mode. Message 9 of Message 10 of Message 6 of Also, you could try to manually send in the commands the way that you want using Measurement and Automation explorer, and use the GPIB test panel to send the commands. A good troubleshooting strategy would be to use NI-Spy to make sure that the syntax you’re sending out is exactly the way that you hope it too.

In order to help you, what exactly are you trying to program this thing to do? If it is possible please post or send me the details carl. I called BK several times and those guys really don’t know anything.

Message 4 of I’m just using prrecision simple serial port VI and am entering the 20H command which should set it to remote mode. I haven’t specifically worked with that instrument, but I still should be able to help you. Most Active Software Boards: What seems to be the issue you’re experiencing? Message 7 of I have trouble receiving data, the byte start moves the AA and the data obtained is wrong when it comes to read it.
Auto-suggest helps you quickly narrow down your search results by suggesting possible matches as you type. While doing this I learned a variety of “secrets” about this dumb thing.
Message 3 of Message 8 of I’m trying to communicate to my BK Precision Repeat until the battery voltage drops to a certain threshold. Message 2 of I’m trying to set the BK in List Mode to discharge a battery and different currents: Programming a BK precision in List Mode?
When I start the VI, I get the displays on the front panel showing that the input is on, the unit is in list mode, and that it’s operating in remote control.

Let us know how it goes! If you can get that working, then using labVIEW to program it shouldn’t be much more difficult. I’m thinking I must have some type of trigger problem.
