The DIGI ethernet interface that Xantrex has for it’s instruments is not VX-11 compliant (VXI-11 is the industry standard ethernet protocol for test and measurement instruments). But I am able to test it using a VISA TCP/IP resource “TCPIP::10.15.117.167::771::SOCKET” but not communicate.
I know that the Xantrex PS is VISA compliant for GPIB and Serial. Xantrex gets it’s ethernet interfaces from Digi’s One Family Single-Port Serial to Ethernet Connectivity I believe. I need your help because we are using the LabVIEW Real-Time Module ETS platform (beleive they use Pharlab or QNX and the RTOS); on windows referencing this virtual COM port works fine but I am not sure what settings their s/w does to make it work under windows. I need to do the same on LabVIEW Real-Time.
Has anybody come across this before. I appreciate your help.
What Is VXI-11 and Is It Supported by NI-VISA?
