Interface-Based Instrument Communication

Low-level protocols such as Bluetooth®, TCP/IP, UDP, I2C, SPI, MODBUS, Serial Port, GPIB, and VISA

With interface-based instrument communication, there are common steps that comprise the basic workflow. You create an object of the interface type you are using, and connect to the instrument. Setting properties is optional, but common. You read and write data, and disconnect and clean up. For an outline of the basic steps, see Interface-Based Communication.
