New - Command Expert for N77 fiberoptic products

Question asked by mkelly Employee on Apr 2, 2012

The Agilent Command Expert, which provides a convenient way to program SCPI commands into many programming environments, now supports the instruments included in the N77 Programming Guide, like the multiport power meters, attenuators tunable sources and switches.

This can be an especially convenient way to read logged data from the power meters, which are transferred in binary block format that requires attention to the byte ordering.
Attached is an example for using the Command Expert with the N7744A or N7745A in VEE.

After installing VEE, the Command Expert should be installed and then a new instrument created with the Command Set 
"N77 Series Optical Instruments". 

With that and the instrument set up with a VISA address, the program should run!
