MATLAB® software is used to control instruments, make measurements, analyze data, and build test systems.
MATLAB supports Agilent power supplies through the Instrument Control Toolbox™. This example MATLAB function connects to an Agilent N6700B Low profile power supply, sets the output voltage and also reads the instantaneous output voltage of the power supply. In this function the output voltage of the power supply is queried 1000 times and the results are plotted to illustrate the reliability, and stability of the power supply. This function has been created using Instrument Control Toolbox v3.1.
Note that this function does not require any additional instrument drivers to operate, as long as MATLAB and Instrument Control Toolbox are installed.
