|Tektronix 494P Spectrum analyzer|
The TEKTRONIX 494P adds remote control and automated spectrum data acquisition and analysis to the performance and portability features of the TEKTRONIX 494 Spectrum Analyzer. The 494P front panel can be controlled remotely (except for those controls intended for local use only, such as INTENSITY). Waveform processing functions are added to do some spectrum analysis locally. The IEEE Std 488 General Purpose Interface Bus (GPIB) port added in the 494P allows it to be used with a wide variety of systems and controllers. This versatility is accomplished because the 494P is implemented according to the Tektronix Interface Standard for GPIB Codes, Formats, Conventions, and Features. This standard promotes ease of operation, and makes the 494P compatible with other Tektronix instruments and, as much as possible, with GPIB instruments from other manufacturers.

Programmers Manual This manual is one of a set for the TEKTRONIX 494P and non-programmable 494 Spectrum Analyzers. The manuals that are available at this time in addition to this 494P Programmers are the 494/494P Operators, 494/494P Operators Handbook (a small manual that fits in the instrument front cover), and 494/494P Service, Volumes 1 and 2. Refer to the 494/494P Operators manual for a full description of instrument functions and front-panel controls. The Operators manual also contains the full specification of instrument performance. This manual describes the programmable functions of the 494P and how to use them for remote operation. Sections 1 and 2 help you get started using the 494P on the IEEE Std 488 General Purpose Interface Bus (GPJB). Programming examples are included here as well as throughout the manual. Some examples are given for a variety of GPIB controllers, but most are in BASIC as implemented on TEKTRONIX 4050-Series controllers. Comments are included to help you translate if you are using another controller. Sections 3 through 7 are a reference to the language used to set and read 494P functions and transfer spectrum data acquired by the 494P. Section 3 defines devicedependent message format and execution. Sections 4 through 7 cover the commands and queries by function; front-panel, display data I/O, waveform processing, and system operation. Section 8 is a how-to section for making programmable measurements with the 494P. Appendix A will help you understand the GPIB and the IEEE 488 standard on which it is based. Appendix B includes two foldout pages containing an index and a comprehensive list of remote control commands and queries and error/event responses.
