DMM4050 remotely power control

Post by MR.Smith » April 12th, 2017, 5:51 am


We have a DMM4050 Multimetr. It is possible to remote power control for this device? We would like to power on and turn off it remotly (via Ethernet, RS-232 etc.)

Is possible to configurate this device for auto power on when AC power cord is pluged?

We are need any way to power on device without pressed "power button" on front panel.

Best regards.

Sounds like you need a meter with a mechanical power switch which you leave in the ON position.
Then power it or not by programmable UPS.
Consider a Keithley model 2000.

This is a very interesting question , enabling Power Save mode remotely, extending display life-cycle.

I think that if SignalExpress does not support such function, then possibly now one bothered to implement such a command into it firmware.
DMM4050 firmware never updated since 2011 and now we are in 2019.
