MAX makes GPIB instrument detection and control easy by providing tools that help you search for connecting instruments, and send and gpib-uxb-b communication with your device.

Using your computer, you can take advantage of this powerful development and debugging tool to interactively communicate read, write, serial poll, and so on with your GPIB instruments. With the VISAIC utility, you can speed up application development by learning how to automate measurements with your instruments, uncover GPIB problems, and avoid headaches by identifying malfunctioning instruments.

Configuration in Windows for USB. Because the GPIB signals at each end are transformed into fiber-optic signals, each unit can reside at a different ground potential. Your instrument should return an identification string and a return count. You can also find these at ni. This sends the If your system involves different ground potentials, the voltage difference could surge through the GPIB hardware and cause damage.


Once you have completed these steps, you need a fast way to progress from interactive mode to programming mode so you can immediately begin writing your tests without a tedious transition process.
