Connect to the Rigol DS4000-Series in Python
PROTOCOLS > SCPI
To connect to a Rigol DS4000-Series Oscilloscope using Qcodes, you can use the following Python script:
This script connects to the oscilloscope using the VISA address “USB0::0x1AB1::0x04CE::DS4A203100839::INSTR”. You may need to modify this address to match the actual address of your oscilloscope.
The script then performs various operations on the oscilloscope, such as setting the time base, enabling autoscale, starting and stopping the acquisition, and retrieving the waveform data from channel 1.
Finally, the script closes the connection to the oscilloscope using the
Note: This script assumes that you have already installed the necessary dependencies, including Qcodes and the Rigol DS4000 driver.
