Hello,

 

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.

Alain

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.
