What is the difference in GPIB External Instrument Measure IP and GPIB Control IP?
GPIB External Instrument Measure IP and GPIB Control IP are IP to control instruments by GPIB. However, it have different functions as shown in the table below.
|Item||GPIB Control IP||GPIB External Instrument Measure IP|
|SRQ command||Support||Not support|
|Execute pattern||Not support||Support|
|Judgment target||STB (Read by MSRQ command)||String (Read by READ command)|
|Send ASCII code||Support||Not support|
GPIB External Instrument Measure IP judges strings which read with READ command as measurement results.
And, this IP can be applied digital signal to the device by executing a pattern program.
GPIB Control IP can receive SRQ (STB) transmitted by GPIB equipment. So, this IP can be controled the GPIB instruments which are required serial polling such as a prober.
