HKJ,

Attached is a device file for the Riden RD6006.

So fast?

The problem was some regex that said [0-9]+, but had to be [0-9.]+, it was very obvious in debug mode (At least for me).

For the SDG1000X, only the frequency limits actually have to be changed ?!? (at least that's how I had done it successfully with the old version).

Please post the changed definition or email it to me.

Again SDG's ... 2000X to 1000X Series.

If, as far as the operation of the SDG in the program is concerned, only the limits of the frequencies are left
(I have not yet been able to discover any other differences when setting the values in the mode window)
you should actually have the definitions for e.g. SDG1032X and 1062X derived from 2122 already make finished ?

I may get around to do something with #metadef then.

I still have to check whether I have done everything correctly, then I will send it.

HKJ,

One thing you are missing for the modbus protocal is to have a #SlaveAddress tag

MikeLud, haven't tested the new SDM3000 definition, just read it.

Could it be that in #metadef the range boundaries (up to 6 boundaries and up to 2 boundaries) were confused between the three SDMs ?
As far as I know, the ranges up to 6 were on the 3045X
(The 3055 definitely has the ... 2 as the range limits).

klausES,

How the #metadef for each SDM works it removes the item (range) from the setup tab

I was very much in doubt about the slave address, my conclusion was:

When using a device on a RS232 connection there will only be one device, i.e. it can be configured as 1.
TestController cannot handle a 485 or 422 bus with multiple devices on, it needs a separate port for each device (At least for now). If TestController was handling multiple devices the address must be configured on the "Load Devices" page, not with a tag.

Got SDG1062X and 1032X ready.
Also adjusted period for these two.
Should now be error free.

Oh well, the voltage display in the mode window now also works with x.x values (thank you).

You hadn't added V rms yet (this is not supposed to be a push),
but should I still upload these two SDG1000X for you?

After trying it out, I understood what you meant.
SDM3055 runs with it. Thank you.

(I had to get used to the slightly different setup window. all good).  ;)

Klaus,
I am working on some changes to the SDGxxxxX device  (using an SDG1062X as a test bed). This will support setting HLEV and LLEV amplitudes as an alternative to AMP and OFFSET; also will support polarity inversion and output channel addition ("wave Combine").

If you can upload your files, perhaps I can merge these changes when they are ready.

Thanks,

Hexley

Current definition for Siglent SDG1032X and SDG1062X (checked on both).

The two definitions originally come from HKJ from an SDG2122X, not mine.
I only adjusted the limits for the two SDG1000X.

I will stay away from the SDG's for now and wait for Hexley.
I hope he has noticed that it is not a clean SCPI device, it has some code support for the #askValues.

Attached is a device file that supports Siglent SDM3000 series DMM in one file. The only model tested is the SDM3065X so if anyone has the SDM3045X or SDM3055 please test and let me know the issues you are having so I can correct them. One setting item I am not sure about is the Speed setting for the AC Current and AC Voltage on the SDM3045X , this was not fully documented. For each mode there is a corresponding setup tab giving you remote control of the soft buttons on the bottom of the screen.

HKJ,

So far 2 out of the 3 SDM's have been tested and are working. Do you still have the SDM3045X so you can test the last device. One setting item I am not sure about is the Speed setting for the AC Current and AC Voltage on the SDM3045X , this was not fully documented.

I will find the meter and take a look at it tomorow.

A purely theoretical question (since the workload would certainly be too great ...)

Would it be possible to operate an SDG remotely like on the control panel ?
Similar to what Siglent did with its control panel in EasyDmm for the SDMs ?

There must be no feedback to display the states, which, like EasyDMM, is the same as the device display,
a display of the states in rows, columns, radio buttons would be enough.

Why this had siglent done for the SDM but never for the SDG is a mystery to me.

Is it just me, or did the page about scripting a SCSI DMM recently lose much of its content?

I need the syntax for the ":readmath:" functions, but they seem to have vanished.  :(

Maybe the Equation Editor in EasyWaveX can do what you want ?
Or is it a Virtual instrument you seek ?
AFAIK Siglent have never had a virtual instrument interface for their AWG's.

If you mean a layout similar to the SDG control panel, the answer is definitely no. The control panels you build in TestController uses a fairly simple language and a limited amount of control elements. This works great for building a rudimentary control panel, but not for making anything remotely similar to real instrument control panel.

The speed setting works fine on 3045, but mine do not have PT1000 (I do not know if it is a old sw version or if unsupported on 3045).
