Cannot connect Keithley 2700 to PC

Post by cedric.v » June 24th, 2019, 3:08 am

Hello,

I am trying to connect the Keithley 2700 to a PC in order to acquire data. I am using a RS232 to USB cable, Win8.1 64bits, the settings on computer match those on the Keithley.
The problem is that the computer detect a device but it does not recognize it as a Kethley, nor in the device manager nor in Tektronix softwares (KickStart, Keithley communicator/configuration panel).
Does anyone have a solution for this problem ?

Thanks

When using RS-232, you will not see the 2700 that way. Just the COM port will be seen.
If using VISA IO, you might see a resource for the COM port such as ASRL1::INSTR
Try interacting with that.
You may need to put line feed on your commands to terminate them: *idn?\n

Thank you, I have solved the problem by installing the right driver for the com port and I am mow able to communicate using the Keithley Communicator software.

Can you send the link for the driver?
