Collect and plot data from an instrument in real time (Scripts) Publisher's description
from Ankit Desai
This MATLAB(R) script generates a real time plot of voltage values collected from an Agilent(TM) 34401A Digital Multimeter over the serial port(RS232)
This MATLAB(R) script generates a real time plot of voltage values collected from an Agilent(TM) 34401A Digital Multimeter over the serial port(RS232). The data is collected and plotted until the predefined stop time is reached. This example also demonstrates automating a query based interaction with an instrument while monitoring the results live.
This script can be modified to be used on any platform by changing the serialPort variable.
On Linux: serialPort = '/dev/ttyS0';
On MacOS: serialPort = '/dev/tty.KeySerial1';
On Windows: serialPort = 'COM1';
The script may also be updated to use any instrument/device to collect real time data. You may need to update the SCPI commands based on information in the instrument's programming manual.
To generate a report of this entire script, you may use the PUBLISH command at the MATLAB(R) command line as follows:
