Instrument Driver Development Wizard - Self Test

The Self Test panel of the Instrument Driver Development Wizard contains the following options:

  • Self-Test Command—Enter the command that causes the instrument to perform a self-test and return the results.

    Example: *TST?
  • Self-Test Response Contents—Select the expected data format in the instrument response buffer. Instruments typically return data in one of three formats. These formats are code only, string only, and string and code. If the instrument does not return data in one of these formats, select Custom and enter the custom format string in Format String.

    Note A custom format string cannot be applied to the data returned by the instrument during the tests run by the wizard. The data is shown exactly as returned by the instrument.
  • Format Choices—Select the format of the expected response to the current command.
  • Format String—This control shows the format string that will be applied to the response buffer. To enter a custom format string, select Custom in the Self-Test Response Contents.
