vrf Forcing an instrument into Local Lock ...

Question asked by michael.asbery on Feb 17, 2000
James,

Using the i/o -> advanced i/o -> interface event object, you can execute a
"local lockout" command to the entire gpib bus.  This will disable all
front panel controls on any instrument connected to the bus until the
program ends or until you execute a "local" command to return front panel
control back to the devices.  Hope this helps.
