How do I get VEE to recognize my Keysight GPIB interface?

VEE has the ability to find all the GPIB cards in your system, including any 82357A USB/GPIB Interfaces, as well as the instruments attached to them. Additionally, once you tell it where a LAN/GPIB Gateway (e.g. E5810A or E2050A/B) is, VEE can also find the instruments connected to that gateway.


Before VEE can talk to an Agilent GPIB interface, the Agilent I/O Libraries must be installed and the interface must be configured in SICL (note that configuration with VISA config and VISA Assistant are irrelevant for using the GPIB interface in VEE). An I/O Libraries CD is included in your VEE product package. Install the I/O Libraries version that is included with your VEE product or a newer version. After you've installed the IO Libraries, use the blue IO icon in the System Tray at the lower right of the Windows® display to configure the interface.

Once the interface is configured in I/O Libraries, start VEE and click on I/O in the menu bar, then click on Instrument Manager.... The Instrument Manager dialog box will open, displaying an icon labelled My Configuration, and will list all of the interfaces and instruments that VEE "knows about".

If this is the first time you have run VEE, there may be several instruments displayed that you don't have on your system. They will have names like "hp34401a(@(NOTLIVE))." Since these instruments are not on your system, you should delete them and let VEE find your connected instruments with its search capability.

To delete the instruments, click on the last instrument in the list, highlighting it, then click on the Remove button in the Instrument section of the Instrument Manager dialog box. Do this for each instrument in the list. When finished, the only object left in the Instrument List will be the My Configuration icon.

For PCI and USB GPIB cards

For LAN/GPIB Interfaces

To set up an E5810A or an E2050A/B, you need to retrieve some information from the IO Libraries and tell VEE where to look on the network. Generally the steps involved are:

Learn the address of the LAN/GPIB Interface

Select Run I/O Config from the blue IO icon in the System Tray. Find the LAN/GPIB Interface in the list of Configured Interfaces on the right of the IO Config dialog box and double-click it or click the Edit... button. Copy the value you see in Remote Hostname or IP Address:, e.g. .

Create a dummy instrument

Open VEE's Instrument Manager, make sure the My Configuration icon at the top is highlighted, and click Add... in the Instrument category on the right side. For Instrument Properties enter "dummy" for name, GPIB for Interface, 714 for Address, then click the This Host button beside the Gateway: label. In the Select or Enter Gateway field, type in or paste the address you learned above, and click OK, then click OK in the Instrument Properties dialog to return to the main Instrument Manager dialog. You will see a new interface icon appear in the tree, something like "GPIB7 at", and below it your dummy instrument.

Tell VEE to find the instruments

Highlight the new GPIB7 interface, and click Find Instruments in the Auto Discovery section near the top right of the Instrument Manager dialog. After a few seconds of searching, you should start to see a series of Identify Instrument dialogs, one for each instrument on the LAN/GPIB Interface. If you believe the instrument is SCPI-compatible (almost all GPIB instruments are SCPI-compatible), click Yes, otherwise click No.

Delete the dummy


Final Cleanup

Properties button on the right. Type a friendly name, e.g. "Agilent33220A", in the Name: field and click OK.

Once you've renamed all the instruments, click the Save button at the bottom of Instrument Manager, and you're ready to do IO in VEE.
