PCI-488 converts any PCI bus personal computer into an instrumentation control and data acquisition system.

USB-488 is a USB-to-GPIB controller module that converts any PC with a USB interface into a full-function, IEEE 488.2 bus controller.

Extender488/F provides an economical solution to the 60 ft. (20 m) distance limitation of the IEEE bus. Using high-speed 115.2 k baud serial data transmission, a pair of extenders can stretch the bus up to 4,000 ft. (1,000 meters). Extender488/F uses duplex fiber-optic data transmission, which provides high-electrical isolation as well as high noise immunity.

Serial488/4 is a four-channel IEEE 488 to serial converter that enables an IEEE 488 controller to command up to four ­bidirectional RS-232 or RS-422 devices. The unit attaches to an IEEE 488 controller in the same manner as an IEEE instrument, and allows the IEEE 488 controller to communicate with serial printers, plotters, and instruments or with other computers.
