3706 (with high amp switch card) to a 2430 using a gpib 488B

keithley kusb 488B with keithey 2430 sourcemeter

Can someone explain to me the correct way to initialize and setup a Keithley 2430 via the Kusb 488B using the Keithley Diagnostic tool? Which instrument address and GPIB board address should I use and why? Will the Keithley diagnostic tool still initialize and work with the 2430 if I only install th...

Re: KUSB-488 and Windows 7

Has the WIndows 7 Kusb 488B 64bit driver been updated yet? I am running Windows 7 home premium with the KUSB 488B connected to a 2430 and a 3706 and cannot get past the gpib connection to my labtop when trying to connect to Labview 2010. Please let me know when I can expect this driver.

Re: GPIB kusb-488b NI driver

Use the VISA functions in LabVIEW to access the HPIB board. By default, a VISA r...

Re: GPIB kusb-488b NI driver

How can I test that the Kusb 488 is working correctly once I get the correct driver installed? Which driver should that be to eventually use Labview 2010 on Windows 7? I am currently uninstalling Labview so I can get these drivers for the 488B, 2430, and the 3706 installed before I install Labview a...
