SRQ usage on a GPIB interface

Question asked by aufenanger on Feb 18, 1999
Dear Mike,

first thing I would try. Look for the small LCD on your on your instrument.
A lot of HP equipment will have such a LCD. So you can see if the SRQ is

Subject:     VrF:  SRQ usage on a GPIB interface

Hello All.
I am trying to communicate to a test instrument, and I would like to use the
SRQ feature.  I am able to communicate by sending commands and reading data,
but I get no response on the SRQ.  In VEE 5.0 I used the SRQ interface event
set to wait.  It is my understanding that the SRQ interface event will then
wait until a SRQ is generated.  I get no response.  I did command the test
instrument to generate a SRQ, but still no response. 
Using the SRQ feature is new to me, and I most likely do not have the GPIB
board configured correctly.  I am using the HP82341 as the controller, and I
am running NT4.0 operating system.  I did look up the I/O configure for the
GPIB board and notice that it has interrupt 15 selected.  Can someone give
me a better understanding of SRQ usage with VEE 5.0 and some setup
information using NT 4.0 operating system.
