How can I change the TekVISA Instrument descriptor “device name” used to identify the oscilloscopes to which I routinely connect?
- Open TekVISA V4.0.0+ OpenChoice Instrument Manager by selecting Start -> All Programs -> TekVISA -> OpenChoice Instrument Manager.
- Select (highlight) the Instrument descriptor listed in the Instruments list for the connected Oscilloscope.
- Click the Properties button below the Update status bar.
- Enter the VISA Alias in the Device Name window, and then click OK.
The device name you created will appear when you update TekVISA OpenChoice Instrument Manager Instruments list by clicking on Instrument List Update button.
You will now see the device name you created to describe the oscilloscope connection when you use TekVISA to connect to programs such as TekXL Toolbar, TekW Toolbar, MATLAB, LabVIEW and others.
