How can I capture screen from HP 8565E. If there is any labview program for it, It would be really helpful. Thanks
Have you looked at this:
With these instruments you need to basically plot the screen file.
I made a screen capture program for my 8595E, and based on the example HPGL image found on the Keysight site using the link provided by Mike, I could make a modification of this program for your 8565E, if you want to do some tests because I don't have a spectrum from the 8560 series.
If you are interested in testing this program (vb.net), I will try to make the modification based on the HPGL example found first.
Output format is *.png or HPGL (black or white background ).
I really appreciate you trying to help.
I am very much interested in testing vb.net program, That would help me very much
I've done a first try based on example of plt file, result below on black background. All GPIB commands are the same, except one, maybe I must do a modification. Another point, I don't know the scale used to the plt file (plotter scaling), maybe today or tomorrow I will send you the program to do the first test. With the return result file I will do the final modification.
Hi suman_g, I haven't forgotten you, I'm working on this little project right now, will be finished very soon.
Hi, this is first version of software for your 8565E (8560series): convert HPGL to png via GPIB transfert to PC, can create csv file with frequency, trace A and B data.
I based software on the file 8560.plt example (HPGL), and I found GPIB commands on programming manual.
If you have some problem with result display, just use "saveHPGL" button and send me the file with the problem. In the example below, I had only one trace.
For GPIB address and saved data directory, enter name or address + RETURN. After you can use Capture button.
Please send me some feedback about this software, because I don't have an 8565E, it difficult for to know if everything is OK.
