Does anyone know what happened to http://www.micsig.com/ ? You know, the company that makes these:

865022-0

The google cache shows that it existed on Oct 28th but now it doesn't even resolve:

Code: [Select]
micsig.com. 291 IN SOA dns25.hichina.com. hostmaster.hichina.com. 1 3600 1200 3600 600

Full story: I'm trying to talk to my TO1104 via SCPI but I haven't been able to figure out how to do it over LAN. I'd like to wireshark the PC or Android app, but I can't get to the site to download the PC app and it doesn't look like the Android app is in the google store (as seen from my device). Next I'll try NI-VISA and USB but any tips on the whereabouts of the micsig site would be appreciated :)

Strange. The Chinese website  ( www.micsig.com.nl ) is still up & running.
There are small lies, big lies and then there is what is on the screen of your oscilloscope.

Micsig.eu is up. Maybe it helps:

I couldn't find the files I was after on micsig.com.nl or micsig.eu but you had the right idea, I found them on micsig.com.cn. Now to see if I can get them to run!

I just downloaded this today from the link posted and it is kind of working. The app seems a little buggy and the display seems to have a hard time reconnecting when communication is interrupted unless I shut the oscope off. When it is working, it is fantastic. The app appears only to allow connection over lan via an IP address. It would be nice if I could figure out a way to control and observe from my phone if I didn't have a network to hook up to. I would rather not use my phone as a hotspot and chew up data for this either. I was able to connect with the WLAN AP setting to my phone, but could not find a way to connect this way through the app. The only option it seems to have is for an IP address to be typed in. Does anyone know of a way to perform a direct connection?
Thanks!

I've made progress since earlier, here are some notes. I'm a LXI / VXI11 / USBTMC newb so any tips and corrections are appreciated.

* I haven't gotten USBTMC working. Yes, I have selected USBTMC in the settings menu. The TO1104 doesn't reliably enumerate and even when it appears to succeed, I get:
Code: [Select]
import usbtmc
scope= usbtmc.Instrument(idVendor=0x18D1,idProduct=0x0303)
scope.ask("*IDN?")
# USBError: [Errno None] b'libusb0-dll:err [control_msg] sending control message failed, win error: A device attached to the system is not functioning.\r\n\n'


* The Micsig app appears to listen for proprietary (afaik) broadcast UDP packets and then connect using VLC over port 8888. This interface is not particularly useful for scripting.

* It appears that VXI11 discovery is broken. I'm new to these standards, but I believe what is supposed to happen is that a connection to a RPC directory service on port 111 is supposed to return the actual port number that responds to SCPI commands. My TO1104 does not listen to port 111. The connection always fails:

Code: [Select]
import pyvisa
rm = pyvisa.ResourceManager("@py")
scope = rm.open_resource("TCPIP::192.168.0.109::INSTR")
# VI_ERROR_RSRC_NFOUND


* A portscan reveals the following open ports:
Code: [Select]


* Connecting directly to port 18212 works!
Code: [Select]
# pip install pyvisa pyvisa-py
import pyvisa
rm = pyvisa.ResourceManager("@py")
scope = rm.open_resource("TCPIP::192.168.0.109::18212::SOCKET")
scope.read_termination = '\r\n' # It fails to recognize end-of-response and times out with default
scope.query("*IDN?")            # sanity check. 'Micsig, TO1104M, 313100050, 6.11'


* Kinda. You get one chance. You can't open two connections at once and I haven't found a way of properly closing a connection (in the sense of allowing reconnect) aside from restarting the scope.

* Now that the connectivity is only 3/4 broken it's time to figure out what SCPI we can use. I found an old unencrypted firmware and dumped the following from the "Desktop" and "oscillo_pad" executables:

Code: [Select]
*ESE?
*ESR?
*IDN?
*OPC?
*SRE?
*STB?
*TST?

* Here is some python code that fetches and plots a waveform. I don't really know if I was just spoiled by a highly tolerant SCPI implementation in my Rohde & Schwarz scope or if the Micsig implementation is actually horribly broken, but it took *a lot* of experimentation to get here. Ugh.


Code: [Select]
# pip install pyvisa pyvisa-py

# --------- Connect to the Instrument ---------
import pyvisa
rm = pyvisa.ResourceManager("@py")
#scope = rm.open_resource("TCPIP::192.168.0.109::INSTR") # VI_ERROR_RSRC_NFOUND
scope = rm.open_resource("TCPIP::192.168.0.109::18212::SOCKET")
scope.read_termination = '\r\n' # It fails to recognize end-of-response and times out with default
scope.query("*IDN?")            # sanity check. 'Micsig, TO1104M, 313100050, 6.11'


# --------- Channel Setup ---------
# Crashes if we queue up more than ~2 commands with scope.write()
# *OPC? does not wait until complete, so we use :CHANNEL1:DISPLAY? instead.
scope.timeout=10000             # milliseconds. RESET takes longer than default of 2000.
scope.query(":MENU:RESET;          :CHANNEL1:DISPLAY?")

I still haven't figured out :WAVeform:SOURce and :WAVeform:POINts? but I have what I need for now.

Hi, thank you for reaching out!

I see that http://micsig.com is up again, yay  :-+

The link "tBook mini User Manual" still looks broken though: http://micsig.com/html/list_35.html

My immediate SCPI needs are met, but if there is any official information on how to talk SCPI to the scope, I would love to read it.

Thanks!

can you remind me which model you are using?  Please also advise your firmware on the unit and around when you bought it

Thanks

I sent my contact details, but I still don't understand the reason for handling this in private. The two resources I'm looking for, a user manual and SCPI command set, shouldn't really be secret.  :-//
