I have saveral questions that i doubted on
1. i have oscilloscope TDS3012C, can it be connected through labview
2. does the oscilloscope communicate to the pc using the GPIB?
3. I'm planning to use GPIB-USB-A to communicate from oscilloscope to pc. but i lost the driver. Can i know which drivers needed?
4. can all of these instrument in windows 8?
The old GPIB-USB A will likely not work with any development environment in Windows 8 Consider updating.
The TDS3012 base model comes with ethernet. the options permit GPIB and RS-232 control
Ethernet, GPIB and RS-232 are all supported by VISA and LabVIEW uses VISA (and its components and associates) to communicate with external devices.
That means if i want to communicate TDS6012C to my pc not using GPIB but by using ethernet cable?
correct me if i;m wrong
Ethernet is a good instruementation bus. It doesn't cost nearly as much as GPIB (need GPIB card, GPIB cables, both of which are kind of expensive). If you use the VISA API, there is no real change to your code if you do switch between GPIB and Ethernet. So I would use that. Of course, I'm saying this without knowning anything about your system.
Do you mind if i ask? How to connect my TD3012 to my laptop?
We are recommending an Ethernet cable
