A supplier is proposing me a software with a PCI GPIB card 777158-04.
As I already have a PCI GPIB card (reference 778-032), I'd like to know if this one would be suitable. The supplier can't give any guarantee as he hadn't tested this card.
Would could help me finding the difference between these 2 GPIB cards?
Thanks for your message.
Yes, it is a NI card.
With MAX, I found that it was a PCI-GPIB card and yesterday, I called NI that told me that the reference was 778-032 according to its serial number...
The 778032 is in fact listed on the product page on the specifications tab. It appears this is the part number for the currently shipping GPIB-PCI card. The 777158 is also listed there. Your vendor appears to be using an older version. I've been using NI's pci cards since they were first released (though I tend to use USB more these days) and I don't recall any issues with any of them. I can't imagine you would have problems with using the current card. In my experience, issues have been more often related to the version of NI-488 that is being used.
Thanks for your answer.
I went through the link you sent and found this
It seems that NI PCI-GPIB card can have several references number... It seems these cards are similar and that the only difference is the drivers versions...
