3. Click "Add Step" in the LabVIEW SignalExpress Tektronix Edition main menu and
select Keithley -> select your instrument series.
4. The Step appears in the Project View of Signal Express and is ready to be used.
5. Connect the instrument to your PC.
Note: You can check the connection to your Instrument using the Measurement &
Automation Explorer or the TekVISA OpenChoice Instrument Manager.
6. Next, select the device in the LabVIEW SignalExpress step by selecting the
"VISA Resource" tab and selecting the device in the "VISA Resource Name" drop down list.
At this point, the interface is ready for use.
Note: If you don't see the instrument in the Resource Name drop down list,
Measurement & Automation Explorer or TekVISA OpenChoice Instrument Manager
can be used to help. If these programs can't find the Instrument, the LabVIEW
SignalExpress software won't be able to interface with the instrument.
