Connect to the SR 510 in Python
PROTOCOLS > SCPI
This script first creates a VISA adapter using the
VISAAdapter class from Pymeasure. The adapter is initialized with the VISA address of the lock-in amplifier.
Then, an instance of the
SR510 class is created, passing the adapter as an argument. This represents the lock-in amplifier instrument.
The script sets the lock-in amplifier properties by assigning values to the
sensitivity attributes of the
Next, the script reads the lock-in amplifier measurements by accessing the
output attributes of the
Finally, the script prints the measurements and disconnects from the lock-in amplifier by calling the
disconnect() method of the
Note: Make sure to replace the VISA address
"GPIB0::1::INSTR" with the actual address of your lock-in amplifier.
