Applies To:  2560 and 2567 black stack modules

 

Problem Description: Commands are not listed for the 2560/2567

 

Resolution/Work Around:   

SYSTem:MODule[n]:DEVice[n]:READ? <device_command>

 

This query command is used to read configuration parameters directly from a device. The device is specified by module number and device number. The module and device numbers are given by the MOD suffix and DEV suffix respectively.  The command SYST:CONF:MNUM? (Section 6.5.8.8 of the manual) can be used to determine the number of installed modules and the command SYST:CONF:MOD[n]:DNUM? (Section 6.5.8.10 of the manual) can be used to determine the number of devices within a module. The <device_command> parameter is the command string (enclosed in quotes) passed to the device. Each device has a unique set of commands.

 

Example command: SYST:MOD2:DEV1:READ? “CURR”

Example response:10

 

SYSTem:MODule[n]:DEVice[n]:WRITe <device_command>,<value>

 

This command can be used to directly send a command to a device to set a configuration parameter. The device is specified by module number and device number. The module and device numbers are given by the MOD suffix and DEV suffix respectively. The <value> parameter, numeric or character data depending on the command, may be used to set a parameter. The *RST command does not affect any device configuration parameters.

 

Example command: SYST:MOD2:DEV1:WRIT “CURR”,10
