Keithley-237 GPIB commands

Post by AlanBahm » August 14th, 2013, 4:40 pm

I am attempting to command the Keithly-237 via GPIB using C# and .NET. I wish to
1) read its identification string
2) command it to Source I Measure V as DC
3) set it to source (and hold) one specific current (say 23.45 microAmps)
I do not need to sweep through a range or measure anything.

I understand the version of GPIB is old and will not recognize queries like *IDN?, but I cannot find specifically from the manual how to do the above.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

1. To read the ID stirng send U0C then read it.
2. To source I and measure V in DC mode send F1,0X.
3. To source 23.45uA send B23.45e-6,6,0X
Here is the link to the manual that shows all he DDCs(Device Dependent Commands)
