Hello all,

I'm using a E5810B to connect to the GPIB-bus. Connected are different devices, such as HP, Anritsu, ifi.
When sending the *IDN?-string to the HP and Anritsu devices, the correct string comes back, containing the whole information about the device.
The problem is that sending the *IDN?-string to the ifi device a "NO REQUEST" is returned. 
What I now know is that the the IDN-string is badly formed and may not parse correctly.
I checked all the settings,what the manual said, I had to make.
I'm new to using GPIB, and I didn't find a better place to post this.
Does anyone have experience with ifi devices or has an idea?

Thank you very much in advance.

Best regards
