The NetAcquire GPIB interface provides a real-time interface between GPIB instruments and other subsystems. GPIB data can also be streamed to or from the network interface of a NetAcquire system. Support is provided for as many as 15 simultaneous GPIB devices.
Interchangeable Virtual Instruments (IVI) capability is integrated for convenient high-level support of devices like power supplies and digital voltmeters. The IVI interface provides intuitive control of devices within a standard functional categories. For example, SetCurrentLimit sets a power supply’s current limit, and work across any supported GPIB power supply regardless of manufacturer or low-level command details.
