vrf National Instruments GPIB Card PCI/IIA

Question asked by VRFuser on Jun 29, 2001
Hello Richard,

The good news is that VEE is generally happy with most GPIB cards.  If you
opt for an NI card then you install the NI software drivers for that card
(not the Agilent IO libraries).  Note that the interface select code (ISC)
for the 1st Agilent card is 7 whereas for NI it is 14 i.e. if your
instrument is at address 22 then the address in VEE (assuming NI card) is
1422, or 722 (assuming Agilent card). 

Hope this helps,

Andy

Hi

Does anyone know if it is possible to use a non Agilent GPIB PC interface
card with VEE?.

I am writing an application in VEE to replace an existing one written in VB
and using a NI GPIB card.
Do I have to add an Agilent Card, thus having two cards in the system so
both VEE and the existing non VEE applications will work.
