Unable to Set Offset on SR530 Using Stanford Research Driver

Updated Jun 6, 2018

Issue Details

I am trying to update the offset on my SR530/510 amplifier using the instrument driver found here.  When I run the "Configure Output Offset.vi" though the offset doesn't update.  How do I change the offset with the driver? 

Solution

There is an issue with the string command that is built and sent to the device in the Stanford Research driver.  There is a comma that is expected that is not included.  In the "Configure Output Offset.vi" you can add this comma to the string.  The string reads "%.;%s %s %g %s" but should be "%.;%s %s, %g %s"
