Tenders are invited for Bipolar Power Supplies and IEEE-488 interface.
Among the topics are digital-to-analog and analog-to-digital converters, measurement systems with an IEEE-488 interface, and crate and modular measurement systems.
Here, TestPointTM is used to control via IEEE-488 interface a system voltmeter; pH measurement is a master variable in analytical chemistry and environmental studies.

When data rates are modest (below about 1 MB/sec) the venerable IEEE-488 (GPIB) is sufficient.
The interface embodies the error-reporting structure and mnemonics of the IEEE-488.
1%, programmable test frequencies from 20 Hz to 1 MHz, 20 measurement parameters, monitoring of voltage and current to the test device, automatic sequencing of up to 6 individual tests, and IEEE-488, RS-232, and handler interfaces.
Built-in IEEE-488 and RS-232 interfaces provide compatibility with the most popular instrumentation control protocols.

For automated operation, the GSS6300M can be synchronised with other equipment and controlled remotely over Ethernet, IEEE-488 (GPIB) or RS232 interfaces.
This includes parallel printer ports, RS-232, RS-422 and RS-485 serial ports, IEEE-488 (GPIB), USB (Universal Serial Bus), IEEE-1394 FireWire bus, and Ethernet.
In doing so the system can be operated with either a remote controller using IEEE-488 or RS-232 interface or through the attenuator's front panel controls, providing a means of adjusting the high power amplifier output for test purposes without the need for system shutdown.
