Issue Details

I am trying to communicate with my 3rd party device. I am able to send it commands in a VISA Test Panel in NI-MAX, but not in LabVIEW with VISA Read/Write commands. What am I doing wrong?


LabVIEW does not automatically add in termination characters to the VISA Writes. In order to get VISA Write commands working, you'll need to Add Termination Characters to VISA Serial Writes
