Instron 4301 GPIB-PCII/IIA rev.1 Windows

Hello everyone.

I have a working Instron 4301. I use Series IX  Automated Materials  Testing System - Ver. 5.04 with GPIB-PCII/IIA 1991 rev.1. For many years It works on Intel i486DX station with matrix printer 😥. Not so long ago I bought workstation on Pentium 4 and old laser LPT printer. Is there any modern software that would allow me to take measurements from the Windows shell?


Thank you

At least for me, the question is not clear enough. I don't see the relation between the Pentium 4 workstation and the old i486DX station.


Are you looking for a GPIB card? or a way to use the Instron 4301 on a modern computer?

Sorry for unarticulated question. I talk about using any version of Windows with Instron  4301 instead of MS-DOS have to use now.. Hoping for this I bought a modern comp.
