How do I know what language 34401A is using through IEEE command. The manual states that it is possible to change the language to L1, L2 or L3. But doesn't say how to query the language.
Hi - Moving your thread to the DMM forum for traction.
Page 3 of the User's Manual shows that the language is set and read from the front panel. E: Input / Output MENU1: GPIB ADDR > 2: INTERFACE > 3: BAUD RATE > 4: PARITY > 5: LANGUAGE. See more detail on page 90. The default language is SCPI. You can't very well check it over the bus if you aren't using the default language.
