How to save Data from Oscilloscope using Python in Linux

Oscilloscope data taking using PythonThis is a general article for connecting any data taking instrument to the computer using python. There are two frameworks for connection namely NI-visa developed by National Instrumentation and PyVISA-py developed by Python itself. In this article, we will describe how to connect Tektronix Oscilloscope to PC via Ethernet or USB using PyVISA-py in Linux.  After connection, we have explained seamless data logging  from oscilloscope.

This article explains how to connect Tektronix Oscilloscope to PC via Ethernet LAN and control it remotely. We have used TEKTRONIX MSO4104B for this tutorial. However, this method can be used in general for other oscilloscopes as well as instruments like Pico Ammeters etc.

Although, you can save the data by connecting pendrive to oscilloscope but this method of Ethernet connection helps you in remotely controlling oscilloscope and directly acquiring data to the PC through browser. After connection, one can also control and acquire data using programming.  Continue reading “Connecting and Controlling Oscilloscope TEKTRONIX MSO4104B from PC using Ethernet LAN”
