The USB- 488 uses the USB port of a PC to provide IEEE 488.2 interface for GPIB instruments. The compact size of USB-488 makes it ideal for portable applications for notebook PCs as well as applications for the desk-top computers with a USB port.
The USB-488 is easy to install. The Plug & Play feature let your Windows 2000/XP/ME/98 computers recognize the IEEE 488.2 interface as soon as you attach it to USB port. This product implements all required and optional features of the IEEE 488.2 specification in controller or device mode as a talker or a listener. I t is fully compatible with existing applications running on your other IEEE 488 control cards. Drawing power from the USB port so it does not need external power supply.
USB-488 is easy programming. Abundant practical examples that let you complete data acquisition, measurement and analysis tasks faster than ever before. The hardware, software and documentation have al l been carefully designed and written to increase your productivity.
