AW: vrf How to change logical-ID of USB-GPIB (Agilent)

Question asked by VRFuser on Jul 30, 2008
Hello Xiaoying,
thanks for your answer. There is no conflict with the USB-GPIB and the 8 port serial card. Everything works fine.
The only problem is that i have a lot of testexec-sequences which are calling vee-actions. And the actions have as input the gpib-address.
This address is for example "701" (logical-id "7" and instrument-address "1").
Now i have to change all parameters to "1501" what means a lot of work.
Would be easier if its possible to change only once the logical-id for the USB-GPIB.
 
(Lesson learned: Always set the address via symbol-table and not hardcoded.)
 
best regards
Jochen

Hi Jochen,

 

Why do you want to change the logical ID? Does your OS can not solve the resource confliction between USB-GPIB and 8 port serial card?

 

Old ISA/EISA-gpib-card has switch on the card to set the logical ID to avoid its resource confliction with other hardware. Now all is settled with OS.

 

Best Regards,

Xiaoying

Subject: [vrf] How to change logical-ID of USB-GPIB (Agilent)

 

Hello,
i´m, using an Agilent USB-GPIB-Konverter 82357B which runs with the Agilent-IO-Libraries 15.
I also have an 8-port serial-card.
When i plug in the usb-gpib then it appears as Logical-ID 15 in the IO-Libraries.
Is there a way to change this number? I remember that in the pci-gpib-cards this value could be changed.
But where to change it for usb?

Thanks for any ideas.

 

best regards
