Last Modified: October 24, 2017

Runs the instrument's self test routine and returns the test result(s).

instrument handle

The instrument handle that you obtain from IviACPwr Initialize or IviACPwr Initialize With Options. The handle identifies a particular instrument session.

Default: None

datatype_icon

error in

Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

Standard Error Behavior

Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

Default: No error

datatype_icon

instrument handle out

The instrument handle that you obtain from IviACPwr Initialize or IviACPwr Initialize With Options.

datatype_icon

error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

self test result

This control contains the value returned from the instrument self test. Zero means success. For any other code, see the device's operator's manual.

self-test message

Returns the self-test response string from the instrument. See the device's operation manual for an explanation of the string's contents.
