vrf Serial Communications to 34401A DMM

Question asked by VRFuser on Jun 11, 2003
Hello Harry,

Note that with RS-232 comms to the 34401 you need to send SYST:REM to set the instrument into remote.  Also you need to set up handshaking to be DTR/DSR (and obviously set up stop bits, parity etc to be commensurate with the instrument).

Let me know if you need any more info

Subject: [vrf] Serial Communications to 34401A DMM


Has anyone used RS232 communications to run a HP34401A?

I can send commands to the DMM but the DMM does not talk.

Any help would be greatly appreciated....Thanks!
