SCPI (Standard Commands for Programmable Instruments) is a text-based application protocol that many measurement instruments offer via a serial data interface (RS232), USB virtual COM port, or other communication links. A typical example for such an instrument are digital multimeters like Agilent HP34401 or Tektronix DMM6500.
The below link includes basic Docklight example projects for
1. Reading data from a measuring device via SCPI
2. Simulating a device answer (“virtual instrument”).
