GPIB in labview

  1. Sep 3, 2010 #1
    Hello all,
    I am trying to program a GPIB instrument (voltmeter and oscilloscope) in labview. I already have all the drivers set up, but I am having trouble finding easy to understand documentation on how to program these instruments. Does you know of any?

    Right now I am stuck on trying to plot data read from the voltage meter onto a waveform graph. Apparently the voltmeter outputs data strings, how do I convert this to numbers? I have already tried multiple conversion tools under the string functions.

    Any help or guidelines would be appreciated.
    Thank you!
