SourceMeter 2410 1100V- GPIB

Post by mathieu_rault » April 20th, 2011, 5:12 am

Hi all,

I have tried to connect a sourcemeter 2410 to my computer by a GPIB but it doesn't work. I have used keithley flash wizard32. This program has detected what is connected to the gpib but when i have to choose the file ()2400c32, there is an error "model 2410 not connected".

This gpib card works with others Keithley like : 485 autoranging - ; 705 scanner ; etc...

Can you help me please ?

Hi Mathieu,

Check that you have chosen GPIB communication, not RS-232, in the 2410. If you are using a NI GPIB card, you can use Measurement & Automation explorer to scan for the instrument and correspondingly communicate with it. Same applies for Keithley GPIB-488A. You can send a query *IDN? and read back the response.

If this doesn't work, u can switch the communication to RS-232 and try communicating it using hyper terminal. If it works using RS-232, then the GPIB card in the instrument might be faulty. In this case, do contact the service center in your region to get the instrument repaired. Thanks. :D
