19bits when set from BUS and 1mV when set from the front panel.

The memory on the units can be upgraded after purchase but please be aware that extra costs such as re-work and shipping will be added to the cost of the memory option.

IVI Shared Components must be installed on the system before Driver installation.


The .zip version of the driver should be used and manually installed.

All of the WW, WS and WX units as well as all of the PXI and PCI units can be programmed using Matlab, Labview, and C++. Our IVI driver is on the installation CD provided with the instrument or you can download it from our online download center .

Please go to Start Menu -> All Programs -> Tabor Electronics -> “instrument” Here you can find all the documentation and examples for programming the unit.

For the WX series and WS 8351/2 the port number should be set to 5025, for all other units port number is 23.

This is a standard LVDS output. Current is ~3.5mA.

In PC there is no CLK10 (like in PXI chassis) and then INT is TCXO

Here is an example:

//Arb wave data
unsigned short waveBuffer[16]={0x0000,0x2000,0x4000,0x6000,0x8000,0xA000,0xC000,0xE000,0xFFFF,0xE000,0xC000,0xA000,0x8000,0x6000,0x4000,0x2000};

//Define Arb segment
strcpy(cmd_str,"TRAC:DEF 1,16\n");
viWrite(InstrSession,(unsigned char *)cmd_str,strlen(cmd_str),0);

//Arb wave header
viWrite(InstrSession,(unsigned char *)cmd_str,strlen(cmd_str),0);
//Write arb wave viWrite(InstrSession,(unsigned char *)waveBuffer,32,0);

Please make sure you have the latest NI VISA and IVI driver installed on your PC. If this is not the case then uninstall the current instrument IVI driver, then install the latest NI VISA and then install the latest IVI driver available at our download center .

Please Install the inf (VISA) driver and then the IVI driver. To download these please go to our download center in our website, select the 5201 model, and download type drivers.

To couple the channels use the command VOLT: COUP 1,1,1,1 this couples all the channels but you can couple any combination for example only 1 and 3 by using VOLT:COUP 1,0,1,0. Then you can use the OUTPT ON or OUTPUT OFF command. VOLT command (to change the amplitude) also affect all channels together. To uncouple the channels you simply send VOLT:COUP 0,0,0,0

1 Mohm, otherwise use a voltage divider to calculate the resultant voltage.
