UE9, I2C - Send only Slave Address + R/W bit

I am using LabjackPython on a UE9 on Windows 7 to communicate with a ZMDI ZSC31014 (a signal conditioner) over I2C.  The process to obtain data from the signal conditioner includes sending an I2C reqest for a measurement conversion and then a separate I2C transaction to read the data.  The transaction that initiates the measurement calculation is a Start Condition, the 7 bit Slave Address, the Read Bit, the Slave Ack, and the Stop Condition. 


I cannot figure out how to send this using the labjack. I tried using the UE9.i2c() function with I2CBytes = [] and NumI2CBytesToReceive = 0, but it only sends a start condition and then a stop condition.  Any help would be appreciated.

Here's the Python i2c method with parameters:
Name: UE9.i2c(Address, I2CBytes, ResetAtStart = False, EnableClockStretching = False, SpeedAdjust = 0, SDAPinNum = 0, SCLPinNum = 1, NumI2CBytesToReceive = 0, AddressByte = None)
Args: Address, the address (not shifted over)
    I2CBytes, must be a list of bytes to send.
    See section 5.3.20 of the user's guide.
    AddressByte, The address as you would put it in the lowlevel
    packet. Overrides Address. Optional
Here's the I2C documentation which explains the parameter settings:
If this information doesn't help with setting the parameters and I2C communications, we'll have someone help further. Also, please provide the i2c call you are performing.
