SCPI in Python
There is a great demand for possibilities to control measuring devices and query data remotely. This makes it possible to position measuring devices close to the DUT (Device Under Test) to keep cable lengths short and to control the measuring devices efficiently even in places that are difficult to access.
Nowadays, there are a lot of possibilities to control measuring instruments remotely or to query values. A very common and easy to learn variant is SCPI (Standard Commands for Programmable Instruments). This whitepaper explains the basic definition of SCPI over TCP/IP and how to send commands via SCPI using the Python programming language. Furthermore, a small example shows how easy it is to implement a SCPI communication with DEWETRON’s measuring instruments in Python to perform the desired measuring tasks and to query or save the results.
