This project contains a device class and corresponding GUI for controlling a Keithley 2450 sourcemeter in Matlab. The implemented methods include standard current-voltage measurements, as well as time resolved current and voltage measurements.

The main function is classKeithley2450.m, which will create a device object for the Keithley 2450 (TSP). There are two optional input parameters (string connectionType, string/int port), which can be also set after creation.

An GPIB controller is required and the Keithley has to be set to TSP! A serial connection does not work and all references will be removed in future updates.

I did not use intentionally the instrument control box, although it is installed, so I hope it does run without. All paths I make are relative, however in Windows style. Contribution for making it compatible to Linux and MacOS are welcome :).

NOTE: Actually this is a pre-release and still needs some rewrite, as this is based on my keithley24XX for SCPI device class.
