The NI Instrument Simulator is ideal for demonstrating PC-based GPIB and serial instrument control. Because it simulates the operation of both a digitizing oscilloscope and a digital multimeter (DMM), it is flexible enough to be used not only in classrooms but also in industry to test and prototype GPIB and serial applications. The NI Instrument Simulator works with primary and secondary addressing, waveform generation (ASCII and binary (one and two byte with byte swapping), 488.2 SRQ protocol, and ASCII data with headers.
Note: A GPIB cable is required to connect the NI Instrument Simulator to the GPIB interface board. A 9-pin-to-9-pin or a 9-pin-to-25-pin null modem RS-232 cable is required to connect the NI Instrument Simulator to a PC COM port.
