Digital Multimeters (DMMs) and MATLAB
Control and Acquire Data from DMMs
You can control and acquire data from benchtop DMMs directly from MATLAB using Instrument Control Toolbox. Because you can control the instrument directly from MATLAB, you can analyze data immediately without having to save and import it into MATLAB at a later time. You can also create graphical interfaces for collecting and analyzing data, visualizing the results, and automating tests.
By using the SCPI commands described in the operating or programming manual for your DMM, you can control and acquire data from any DMM over any of these supported interfaces:
Control and Acquire Data from DMMs with Instrument Driver Software
Many manufacturers of benchtop DMMs supply industry-standard instrument drivers that you can use directly from MATLAB. Instrument Control Toolbox provides connectivity through instrument drivers such as:
