Tektronix Instrument GPIB Adapter
The TEK-USB-488 Adapter enables communication between a GPIB bus controller, and the USB port of a USBTMC-USB488 compliant Tektronix instrument (for example, the DPO4000 Series Oscilloscopes).
Adapter configuration to controller and instrument
Compatible with Tektronix instruments providing USBTMC-USB488 compliant USB ports supporting the protocol and USB extensions required for setting the adapter’s GPIB primary address. For USBTMC-USB488 instruments not supporting these USB extensions and protocol, the GPIB address defaults to address “1” and cannot be changed. Each adapter controls one instrument and does not support use of USB hubs.
