USB-to-GPIB interface adapter.
The Model KUSB-488 USB-to-GPIB Interface Adapter transforms any computer with a USB port into a full-function, IEEE 488.2 controller that can control up to 14 programmable GPIB instruments. Its small size and light weight make it suited to portable applications using a laptop computer, or applications in desktop computers where I/O slots are scarce or non-existent and where several USB ports are available. The device works with Windows 2000/XP/Me/98 computers with a USB port, is USB 2.0 compatible, and has an IEEE data transfer rate of 880 kbytes/sec. A built-in 2-meter USB cable supplies power, eliminating the need for external power sources. It is easy to install and use, as there are no external DIP switches and no need to restart the computer for the system to recognize the IEEE 488.2 interface. Potential users include OEMs involved in instrument control, rack-and-stack test stands for production, laboratory research, and portable applications.
