Unable to communicate with 53132A Universal counter via USB-GPIB converter

Question asked by Chaitanya on Jul 18, 2017

Hi,

I am unable to communicate with 53132A Universal counter via USB-GPIB converter (GPIB-USB-HS) .

The instrument (53132A) doesn’t get detect with both “Keysight connection expert” and with “Agilent connect expert version 15.5.13009.1” as well. 

 

  • The USB to GPIB converter (GPIB-USB-HS) is working fine and able to communicate with other instruments (like Agilent E3640A DC power supply, 34970A Data acquisition/switch unit etc.)
  • GPIB address in 53132A is set as 5 and also tried with different addresses between 0 & 30.
  • I tried with different counter also (53131A), this too doesn’t detect and unable to communicate
  • Tried with "Excel intuilink for counter", but the instrument was not detected
  • I am using windows 7 OS.

Please suggest how can i communicate with 53132A from PC for data logging.

 

Thanks,

Tarani Chaitanya
