GPIB to Ethernet Instrument Interface

ICS's 4865B GPIB to Ethernet Instrument Interface adapts instruments with Ethernet interfaces to GPIB test systems.

ICS's 4865B provides a VXI-11 compliant interface for instruments that support the VXI-11 protocol and a smart, user-configurable, raw socket protocol that accommodates most instruments that use raw sockets. The 4865B replaces our earlier Model 4865 and is 2x to 5x faster than the original Model 4865. Click here for the original 4865 webpage.
