This register is read-only; bits are not cleared when read. More information see Tektronix. An enable register defines which bits in the event register will be reported to the Status Byte register group. The standard allows up to 15 devices to share a single physical bus of up to 20 meters total cable length. Enables 1 or disables 0 the clearing of certain enable registers at power on:.

Arguments are given after the command, and are separated by a space. In the original protocol, transfers use an interlocked, three-wire ready—valid—accepted handshake. Similar commands are grouped into a hierarchy or “tree” structure. The benefits of this standardization for the test system developer jeee reduced development time and cost, because it 48.82 the problems caused by instrument incompatibilities, varying command structures, and data formats.

Although originally created in the late s to connect together automated test equipmentit also had some success during the s and s as a peripheral bus for early microcomputersnotably the Commodore PET. Return the learn string: The instrument tried to read the output buffer but it ieeee empty. It is possible for multiple controllers to share the same bus; but only one can be the “Controller In Charge” at a time.


Archived from the original on The TESTSYS protocol instructs each device to run its own self-tests and report back to the Controller whether it has a problem or is ready for operation.

GPIB Hardware and Software Specifications

PRESet resets the instrument for front-panel operation. The SCPI specification consists of four volumes: Otherwise, they refer implicitly to the last node of the previous command unless they already begin with an asterisk. Reserved for future use.

All devices must be able to send and receive data, request service, and respond to a device clear message. Power has been cycled since the last time the event register was read or cleared.

Event Status Enable Command and Query. The standard allows up to 15 devices to share a single physical bus of up to 20 meters total cable length. They are held in place by screws, either UTS now largely obsolete or metric M3. An event register is a read-only register that latches events from the condition register. For other uses, see SCPI disambiguation. The bus was relatively easy to implement using the technology at the time, using keee simple parallel bus and several individual control lines.

Returns 1 to the output buffer after all pending commands complete. The slowest participating device determines the speed of the bus.

Also clears the error queue. Options vary by model, as shown here.

Condition register bits are updated in real time; they are neither 48.82 nor buffered. The bus employs sixteen signal lines — eight used for bi-directional data transfer, three for handshake, and five for bus management — plus eight ground return lines. Archived from the original on They are made of simple commands separated by a semicolon character.

Because the GPIB is an 8-bit parallel interface with fast data transfer rates, it gained popularity in other applications such as intercomputer communication and peripheral control. Configure DC voltage measurements and enable the generation of an SRQ when the measurements complete: This register is read-only; bits are not cleared when read.
