34401 FSC Timeout error in Met/Cal 8.3.0
After an upgrade to Met/Cal 8.3.0 our 34401A multimeter stopped responding to the 34401 FSC. The 34401A did appear on the GPIB interface and it responded to commands.
The code line:
34401 1V 0.1u 2w
Results in the 34401 responding and taking a measurement. Met/Cal keeps waiting and after a minute issues a E2702 Time out error.
Inspection of the NI IO trace utility showed that a “FETCH?” command was missing. This command did show up in the MetCal 7.3.38 version that we use. There appears to be a bug in the 34401 Met/Cal driver.
The same time out error occurs with our Keithley 2001 multimeter.
Is anyone else having this problem?
