Greetings, My Kethley 2010 DMM has GPIB interface or RS-232. I wish to find a low cost solution to interface via the GPIB - USB. I found quite a few on Ebay with quite a cost spread so I am wondering if anyone has used one and can give a recommendation or tell me ones to avoid. Thanks

Can you not use the $1 RS232 - USB boards that proliferate on Ebay?

Edit, just realized you would need a MAX232 as well.

I use one of these:

with my Racal counter and Fluke bench voltmeter. Works well.

I don't know what you intend to use for a control program, I use EZGPIB, I think that it is still available, the guy who wrote it died and so did his website.
Last time I looked someone else was acting as guardian of it.

Other thing is I would need labview drivers. As I understand it, some of the agilent clones come with drivers.

I got a gpid card cheap off ebay, the driver database is pretty big. I have a large HP LA thats GPIB, but i would use RS232 over it any day.
