Build Remote Communication
SCPI Command Overview
You can build the remote communication between DP800 and PC over USB, LAN, RS232 or GPIB (option, can be extended via the USB-GPIB interface converter) interface.
Remote Controls Methods
- User-defined Programming
You can program and control the instrument using the SCPI (Standard Commands for Programmable Instruments)
- Send SCPI Commands via the PC Software
You can control the power supply remotely by sending SCPI commands via the PC software (Ultra Sigma) provided by RIGOL.
SCPI (Standard Commands for Programmable Instruments) is a standardized instrument programming language that is built upon the standard IEEE488.1 and IEEE 488.2 and conforms to various standards (such as the floating point operation rules in IEEE754 standard, ISO646 7-bit coded character for information interchange (equivalent to ASCII programming)). This section introduces the syntax, symbols, parameters and abbreviation rules of the SCPI commands.
SCPI Status Registers
All the SCPI instruments execute the status register operations in the same way. The status system records the various instrument states into three register sets: status byte register, standard event register, and questionable status register sets. The status byte register records the advanced summary information
reported by other register sets. The SCPI status systems of the DP800 series multi-channel models.
The Rigol DP832
is a very high-quality programmable laboratory power supply with three switchable outputs (+30 V/3 A, +30 V/3 A and +5 V/3 A) and a maximum power output of 195 W.
Like all Rigol devices, the power supply features a very well constructed and easy to use interface offering comprehensive ease-of-use functions, such as programmable voltage curves. The menu has an intuitive structure.
The Rigol DP832 features a relatively large (8.9 cm / 3.5") and easy to read TFT monochrome display. In addition to the normal digital displays for voltage, current, and power, these values can also be displayed as signal curves. A timer control can be used to set the output signal to different values in up to 2048 steps.
The DP800 Series
Power Supplies combine the ability to source, analyze, and coordinate over time in a powerful new package. The DP800 Series is a family of linear power supplies systems with 3 outputs and up to 195 Watts in total. With one channel isolated, users can reconfigure instruments into any number of systems or applications.
Built in V, A, and W measurements make power monitoring easy, but additional wave tracking, timing, and analysis features mean there are even more ways to use the supplies. New digital triggering between instruments also makes it possible to reliably combine and connect supplies together. Intuitive to use for everything from education labs to the R & D bench, the DP800 family of power supplies provide incredible value for any application.
