Do you have some special programming language ?
Maybe HP BASIC? If you have this one, you can easily try to program it with
OUTPUT:705;"Your message to the DMM here"
when 7 is the interface number of your HPIB I/F (common on the other HP machines) and 05 is the HPIB address of your DMM.
I don't believe, that you need another piece of hardware.
Your disk drive/harddisk is the "normal" HPIB device and if this works, then your hardware must be o.k.
These are just some hints - I didn't try this with a 150. I'm working with a 9826, which is easier to handle than a Windows machine with Visual Basic, ...
Besides that, the 9826 has never hung...
