KUSB-488A and KUSB-488B Differences

Post by stevenlis » December 7th, 2010, 8:27 am

I have both the A and B versions. The A version has been working fine for years. When I replaced it with the B version, the software works fine for some actions. However, some software processes cause the B version to "lock up" and provide a complex error message.

Are there setting that I can change on the B version to make it identical to the A version?

I am not aware of any settings you can change. Did you install the Keithley or National Instruments compatible version and have you downloaded the latest version of the driver? You can download the latest version here:

You must install the KUSB-488B as keithley command compatible if you want CEC like funcationality.
There are bug fixes, so be sure to download latest driver now at version 3.06.
