Instrument Driver Development Wizard - ID Query

The ID Query panel of the Instrument Driver Development Wizard contains the following options:

  • ID Query Command—Enter the instrument identification query command.

    Example: *IDN?
  • Expected ID Query Response—Enter the string that your instrument sends in response to an identification query.
    Note Be sure to enter the response string exactly as the instrument will return it. Include spaces, commas, and so on. The driver uses this string to compare with the actual instrument response to determine that the correct instrument is being addressed. The entire response string is not required. Enter enough of the response string to identify the instrument.


    National Instruments,123,000000,V1.0 (whole string for identification)
