Issue Details

I am using an Agilent 5746A device. When I run an IVI power supply step in TestStand, I get the following Run-Time error.

An error occurred while executing the step. 
Details: Invalid value (<>) for method <>, parameter<> [IVI Error Code: BFFA0010]


Solution

The Over Voltage Protection setting must be enabled for Agilent devices. This setting is disabled by default since IVI steps that use NI power supplies fail if they have this setting enabled.
