The National Instruments GPIB RS-232/485 IEEE 488 Controllers and Converters can turn any computer or terminal with an RS-232 or RS-485 port into a full-function IEEE 488.2 controller. With the flip of a switch, the NI GPIB-232CT-A or NI GPIB-485CT-A can make any RS-232 or RS-485 device appear as a GPIB device. The small size of these controllers makes them ideal for use with laptop computers or other computers that have no internal I/O slots available.
The NAT4882 IEEE 488.2 ASIC implements the full range of GPIB controller functions, including those controller functions required and recommended by IEEE 488.2. All GPIB sequences and operations conform to IEEE 488.2. External DIP switches set the operating mode, the GPIB primary address, and serial port parameters. Depending on the version, the GPIB-232CT-A and GPIB-485CT-A controllers can accept either AC or DC power input. You can connect either the GPIB-232CT-A or the GPIB-485CT-A to up to 14 GPIB instruments.
