Rigol DP832 and Linux

February 15th, 2016 No comments

I just bought a nice power supply from Rigol, a DP832. After enabled the LAN option, I was wondering it’s possible to use it from Linux.

After few minutes, I found the python vxi11 library. Just install the module (I guess ivi and numpy is required as well), and few minutes of digging in documentation, here a snippet:

import vxi11
instra = vxi11.Instrument("")
RIGOL TECHNOLOGIES,DP832,DP8C174204690,00.01.14

Simply perfect.
