For controlling the instrument over Ethernet connections, HiSLIP (High-Speed LAN Instrument Protocol) is used. Simplest way to communicate with the instrument from a PC is to make use of VISA software, for example NI VISA. For connecting to the instrument, a connection resource string in the following form will be required:

TCPIP::<IP address>::hislip0::INSTR

Replace <IP address> with IPv4 address of the instrument, for example:


IP address of the instrument can can checked in Settings → User Options → Network page in device’s on-screen interface.
