Controlling two RSA6100's simultaneously

Post by asherlk1 » July 20th, 2011, 5:59 am

Is it possible to control two RSA6120A's through matlab using a GPIB cable?

Yes you can, but they will need to have different GPIB addresses.
Then when you setup your objects, you will need to specify which GPIB address each is pointing to.

Example (using scopes with USB connection instead of GPIB)
scope1 = visa('NI', 'USB0::0x0699::0x0401::Q10035::INSTR');
scope2 = visa('NI', 'USB0::0x0699::0x0401::Q10055::INSTR');

Now, if you wanted to send the same command to both, you will have to send it to them individually, but this can be done within the same script.
