HPIB/GPIB cables from C2G ensure flawless data transmission and are manufactured according the IEEE-488 specification. They feature Male and Female piggy-backed 24-Pin Centronics style connections to allow daisy-chaining to another instrument or printing device.
The GPIB bus was invented by Hewlett Packard at the end of the 1960's. The intention was to create a reliable bus system especially designed for connecting computers and instruments. This networked system has all features that are required to create a measurement system. Remote control of instruments is one aspect of these features, but there are other more important features like data handshake for reliable operation and real-time response capability, only to name a few. The original bus system, designed by Hewlett Packard, was called HPIB, short for Hewlett Packard Interface Bus.
- Connectors: Centronics 24-Pin Male/Female to Centronics 24-Pin Male/Female
- Specified Transfer Rate: 1 MByte per second
- Up to 15 instruments (devices) can be connected to one computer (controller)
- Cable Length: 20 m between controller and one device or 2 m between each device, whichever is less
- Data Transfer Mode: 8 bit parallel
- For connecting computers and instruments
- Each cable is double-shielded and fully moulded to reduce EMI/RFI interference and achieve maximum signal integrity
