34970A Timeout errors when reading any channel

I'm currently trying to communicate with my Keysight 34970A via Benchlink with no success. I can find the instrument and configure it, but when I try to scan any channel, the communication fails, aborts the operation (presumably because of a timeout error) and I have to reset the instrument to reestablish communications again.

I even tried monitoring the IO via Keysight IO monitor and use the MEAS:TEMP command, but whatever command I use to measure any channel brings me a timeout error. Although if I try to use the *IDN? command or any other, it works flawlessly.

Thanks in advance,

Kind regards
