MLab

Instrument control and acquisition from Matlab using the National Instruments VISA Interface. The VISA framework allows for communication over any bus to an instrument/device providing a SCPI interface.

At present only the Windows 32-bit VISA library has been tested in the MLab wrapper.

Supported Instruments

  • DS1054Z Oscilloscope
  • E3648A Power Supply
  • E3634A Power Supply

DS1054Z Sample Code

To acquire a waveform from the DS1054Z oscilloscope the following sample Matlab code can be used with MLab's subdirectories in the Matlab path.

h = DS1054Z('USB0::0x1AB1::0x04CE::MYSERNUM::INSTR');

To acquire channel one's acquisition record:

[ y, Fs, ts ] = h.WaveAcquire(1);

The resulting values are

y: Channel Voltage (N x k)

Fs: Sample Rate (1 x 1)

ts: Sample Times (N x k)

Where N is the memory length and k is the number of channels acquired.

To acquire multiple channels, for instance channels 1, 3, and 4, one would do the following:

[ y, Fs, ts ] = h.WaveAcquire([1 3 4]);

All of the properites of the DS1054Z handle are feteched over SCPI; no caching is performed. Using the default matlab variable display in the comand window results in the following:

E3648A Sample Code

To instantiate a E3648A handle, one would perform the following:

vs = E3648A('GPIB0::5::INSTR');

A sample setup of the E3648A could be the following:

% E3648A Dual Output Power Supply
vs = E3648A('GPIB0::5::INSTR');

% Ensure Output is disabled
vs.OUTPUT = 0;

% Configure Output Channel 1
%   Voltage Setpoint 5 VDC
%   Current Limit 1 ADC
vs.V1_SET = 5;
vs.I1_SET = 1;

% Configure Output Channel 2
%   Voltage Setpoint 15 VDC
%   Current Limit 100 mADC
vs.V2_SET = 15;
vs.I2_SET = .1;

% Enable Output
vs.OUTPUT = 1;

% Measure Channel 1 Load State
% Note voltage is measure at front panel terminals unless sense leads
% are connected to rear interface.
[ I1meas, V1meas ] = vs.Measure(1);

% Measure Channel 2 Load State
[ I2meas, V2meas ] = vs.Measure(2);
