After connecting the HP82169 to the HP71, try RESTORE IO. If it passes, the HP82169 should be OK.
You have to make sure that the HP82169 is in translator mode (not mailbox), see the settings under the HP82169.
Then you have to know the HPIB address of your equipement. You could try common IEEE-488.2 commands such as *IDN? and get the answer:
OUTPUT :addr; "*IDN?"
ENTER :addr; A$ @ DISP A$
(addr= address of your device)
Something is working! But still not all is clear:
'Restore Io' with no reaction --> ok,
OUTPUT :1; "*IDN?" --> no query, seem to be ok as well,
ENTER :1; A$ @ DISP A$ gives '1,31,31,31,31,31,31,31,31,31,31,' ,
which I do not understand.
On the hp3488A I have put the address to 5 (l0l00),
but I can put what I want, I do not get any answer back
and I cannot see any reaction yet at the 3488, only with
addr. 1 I get the numbers as above.
No, on the front panel of this device there is no indicator
showing rem or remote.
Trying the same with the simple 59306A 'relay actuator'
I experience the same but no reaction (Output 'An' should switch relay n on, 'Bn' then off).
thanks again as well to the other respond!
PS: unfortunately I do not have (yet) the docu DVD, nor am I familiar with the IB syntax :-((
