Lot 753: HBM Spider 8 Data Acquisition Panels

Spider with the P22 firmware version. BUT the good days are gone…I have updated everything. It seems as the connection is not fast enough.

Spider32 setup still can hbbm it but seems a xpider8 slower now. Any advice is welcome as well as was a place where I still can download the last firmware version. Most Active Software Boards: Auto-suggest helps you quickly narrow down your search results by suggesting possible matches as you type.

I downloaded the LabView hhm for this measurement device from the NI homepage. Now I have got problems with data acquisition, it doesn’t work at all. S;ider8, the system is very unstable. Can anybody help me? Message 1 of Are you getting any error messages from the VI’s or does the device just not seem to respond at all? Also, which drivers are you using exactly? I didn’t see any drivers for the spider8 on the NI site. Message 2 of I solved the problems a few days ago.

Soon I will tell what were the problems. Message 3 of I cannot tell exactly why the data acquisition process didn’t work, but now everything is fine. So I will give some remarks on what could have been the reason: First of all, my operating system is NT4. The Spider 8 is now equipped with the latest firmware, which can be obtained from the HBM homepage. The Spider is connected with the notebook via the serial port.


First I chose a baud rate ofnow I use The cable has spidfr8 a length of about 1 meter. Perhaps the old firmware caused some problems A big problem were the error messages which sometimes didn’t make sense to me.

After some errors had occured, I didn’t turn the Spider off and on, and the error messages were strange. W henever this is not true, the Spider should be turned off and spide8r.

A further point are inconsistencies between the online help, the help function in the Spider setup program and the printed manual!

This is not very useful! Last but not least the timeout has to be adjusted according to the specific number of counts, baud rate and measuring rate. In most cases the baud rate will be the limiting factor, but don’t forget the measuring rate!

So in this example, the timeout has to be adjusted in respect to the measuring rate. Message 4 of Message 5 of I am reading your inputs with respect the use of the Spider8 with Labview.

I would like to receive help with respect this issue. First at all say that my spider8 is version P13 quite old. I have read that minimum version shoud be P20 to work correcrtly with Labview. I haven’t downloaded the latest firmware yet. With this configuration I copied the spider I tried to run one of the spider8 examples with labview and did not work. Please could you help me to spide8 what the correct steps are jbm try the spider89 works with Labview?.


Message 6 of I was not able to find much in the way of documentation on xpider8 HBM website regarding the drivers you mentioned. This Tutorial has information regarding how to properly call functions from DLLs using the call library node.

Message 7 of I have run the firmware sp8firm32 and de archive sp32, both can be downloaded in the hbm website, and my example started to run. I have 2 examples and one shows the mesured value in the port and the other plots graph in the screen of the signal mesured in the port. My Hbk is windows 98, labview version 6i.

I hope this help you. If you need the archives email-me wanderleyff gmail. Message 8 of Message 9 of Hi Slider8, i would recommend you using catman activeX under Labview to acquire data from HBM amplifier systems including also Spider8.

The big advantage is, that you have all options to control your DAQ process.

There is one little disadvantage: For Labview there are some examples which show how to access data via catman activeX. I guess, the best way slider8 contacting a sales representative of HBM http: May be, he has a demo version for you almost catman professional including the catman activeX interface.

Best Regards Andreas R. I have updated everything. Reading values includes a lot of? HBM home page doesn? Message 10 of
