Python Code for Lecroy WaveSurfer 24MXs (Ethernet)

license - BSD language - python category - power electronics status - unmaintained

This Python class remote controls the Lecroy WaveSurfer 24MXs over ethernet:

  • connect to the device
  • set up the channels
  • control the trigger
  • download a screenshot
  • download the waveform data

This class:

  • uses the "VXI-11" ethernet instrument control protocol
  • was tested on "MS Windows" but should run with Linux
  • should also be easy to adapt to other Lecroy scopes
  • was tested with Python 2.7 but should run with Python 3.x

This class is meant as a lightweight code to be used as a "code snippet" and not as a full package. Be careful, the Lecroy instruction are messy and incoherent between the scope models.
