SCPI

Description#

A SCPI enabled device is a way of remote controlling laboratory equipment such such as power supplies, signal generators, and other lab equipment. SAFE can be set up to both write and query a device with custom commands set up specifically for a device. This makes it easy to set up test sequences where multiple settings are set for automatic tests.
