how can i use two 5204 on one PC (labview)

Post by Christian.muendl » Tue Aug 17, 2010 3:12 pm

Hi everyone,
i have a question about programming a labview VI with two 5204 scopes.
Is there any way to act with 2 scopes at the same time?
I found the ps5000OpenUnit (from PS5000.dll )call to initialise the scope, but there is no way to choose the device?

Or should i call this funktion 2 times and guess which one i called or can i differ it by the anser?

Thank you very much!!

Yes you would call the openunit function twice each handle will identify the unit that you have opened. You can then call the ps5000GetUnitInfo function to give the serial number of the product.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards
