Read STB (G Dataflow)

Version:
    Last Modified: March 3, 2017

    Reads a service request status byte from the specified message-based device.

    connector_pane_image
    datatype_icon

    session in

    The resource to be used.

    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

    session out

    The resource to which a VISA session is opened.

    This output also includes the class for the session, which matches that of session in.

    datatype_icon

    error out

    Error information.

    The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

    status byte

    The status byte read from the instrument.

    Status Bytes for 488.2 Instruments (GPIB, VXI, TCP/IP, USB)

    • GPIB—Reads the status by serial polling the device.
    • VXI—Sends the Word Serial Read STB query to the device.
    • USB—Sends the device the Read Status Byte command on the control pipe.

    Status Bytes for Non-488.2 Instruments (Serial Instr, TCP/IP Socket, USB Raw)

    This function retrieves status information by sending a message in response to a service request. If the IO Protocol property is Serial-TCPIP-USB/488 Strings, the device is sent the string "*STB?\n" and then the device status byte is read; otherwise, this operation is not valid.

    Where This Node Can Run:

    Desktop OS: Windows

    FPGA: Not supported
