EXPERIENCES WITH A MICROVAX AS CONTROLLER OF SEVERAL DATA ACQUISITION SYSTEMS WITH USE OF THE IEEE-488 BUS
Since August 1986 we have been using at our solar test site, a MicroVAX to control several data acquisition systems, to collect data from it and to do calculations and modelling. All input from these systems and output to a plotter is done by using the instrument bus. Programs for the MicroVAX using the IEQ-interface, were hard to find. Besides the fact that we had to solve some particular problems concerning the use of several IEQ- interfaces we had to develop a package of software to realize our wishes. It contains: handler modules, a general test program for apparatus, a plot program and procedures to use in mainprograms, all using the instrument bus.
