Installing the VISA Library

VISA (Virtual Instrument Software Architecture) is a specification for standard software that is used to connect instruments. VISA was defined by the IVI Foundation.

A VISA library is required to use the software application. The VISA library (NI-VISA, Agilent VISA, or KI-VISA) must be installed on the controller (Windows).

When the product is controlled by the LAN interface (optional), middleware which applies to the VXI-11 or HiSLIP protocol is required. Middleware is automatically installed by the VISA library.

One of the VISA libraries (driver software implemented in compliance with the VISA specifications) below is necessary.

• NI-VISA by National Instruments (Ver. 5.1.1 or later)

•Agilent VISA by Agilent Technologies (Agilent IO Libraries Suite16.0 or later)

•KI-VISA Ver. 5.0.4 or later


If your VISA library is an older version than that specified, you may not be able to use it depending on the interface.

Installing KI-VISA


Do not install multiple VISA libraries on the same PC. Doing so may cause errors.
KI-VISA is not required if NI-VISA or Agilent VISA is already installed.

KI-VISA is Kikusui's original VISA library that supports the VXIplug&play VISA specifications.

The newest version can be downloaded from the Kikusui website (
