Bus Extender


Expands a cabled GPIB system while meeting IEEE 488 standard cable length and device loading requirements.

The Bus Extender can extend the cable length of a GPIB system without compromising the integrity of the GPIB system or requiring software modifications. This accessory supports unbuffered mode to transmit each data byte using the GPIB double-interlocked handshaking protocol. Alternatively, the Bus Extender supports buffered mode, which uses a first-in-first-out (FIFO) buffer technique to transfer data between the remote and local units at faster rates.
