I have to obtain data from a "robot" controlled via GPIB , by a PC.
There is no access to the code that takes control of that robot and that is running in background.
However , on the same PC, we can write gpib code.
I know the GPIB "pad" of the robot.
Is it possible to know the "device" number required for read/write commands w/o openning the "device" , since it is already open.
Thanks in advance.
From MAX, you can do a scan for instruments on your GPIB network. That should be able to find an active address.
From there, you need to know what the commands are.
