Hi Pirmin,
The value for "rsrcname" is the resource name for the VISA instrument. The format for resource name depends on the interface you are using (PXI in your case). For this interface the resource name consists of the PXI chassis index and the instrument logical address. You can also see the VISA-PXI resource name for a given instrument listed NI MAX. In general the format for PXI is as follows:
For example, to create an NI VISA-PXI object associated with a PXI chassis with index 0 and logical address 32, use the command:
>> vv = visa('ni','PXI0::32::INSTR');
More information on working with the VISA-PXI interface can be found on the following pages:
