Serial Interface

Post by Nlauer » January 3rd, 2012, 12:46 pm

Is there any functionality to the serial interface? It shows up in the communications section, but the connector has been covered up on the back panel.

The serial interface is a factory test port only.

I am sorry that it still shows up in the communication menu. We have already made changes so that the serial port does not show up in the communication menu. Please set up your unit to USB or GPIB port. If it poses any further inconvenience, do not hesitate to let us know.

I actually want to use the serial port, but the Menu of our Model 2200-20-5 display does not show it as an option. The user manual does mention RS232 along with GPIB and USB. How can I get the RS232 option showing up and use it? Thanks!

Thank you for pointing out the RS232 content in the manual. It will be removed.
The RS232 is a factory-only port. We support remote communication over GPIB and USB ports.
With that said, you are still free to try the connection over RS232 even without the Menu selection on the front panel. We just cannot guarantee performance.

Thanks,
Qing

The menu "Communication" only allows either GPIB or USB. Without selecting RS232, can I still get serial port to work? Thanks for your suggestion!
