Rigol Oscilloscope Remote Control with LXI Bus
I have written a piece of code in Python for my oscilloscope Rigol DS1054Z. It allows me to read measured data in time domain, save them or convert them to frequency domain. For the communication with the oscilloscope I use LXI (LAN eXtensions for Instrumentation) bus which uses Ethernet interface and therefore the communication with the device is very comfortable. I see the main advantage of this software mainly in saving my measured data as it is far more user-friendly in comparison with USB memory stick. Secondly, in my opinion, it is easier to read FFT data in my application than on the oscilloscope. I have used multi-threading so the application is fully responsive even though the application read and present the data continuously, the graphs are automatically centered based on the received data and of course, the axis labels change automatically as well. I hope I will have time to add more functions in the future. Take a look at the following pictures.
