e4416a SCPI timeouts

Question asked by geeday on Apr 14, 2015
I'm having trouble with the basic "MEAS?" command. If I use NI Max over the serial port, sometimes I get the power, sometime I don't; i get random timeouts.

I've been trying
write(MEAS?)
wai(t 5 seconds)
read()

and 
ask/query (MEAS?)

but to no avai.

given I get the data sometimes, my assumption is the line ending stuff is OK.

Thanks in advance
Gordon
