How do I Update the Voltage and Current Range on the Instrument Using Pre-IEEE488.2 Command Types?

To change the voltage range on element 1 to the 30 V range, send the "RV1,4" command to the measuring instrument.
To change the current range on element 1 to the 1 A range, send the "RA1,5" command to the measuring instrument.
To set the ranges on all elements at once, use: Voltage global setting "RV0,4" or Current global setting "RA0,5"

After entering settings, confirm the settings by sending the following commands:

  • To query the voltage on element 1: "RV1?"
  • To query the current on element 1: "RA1?" 

For more information on the correspondence between voltage values, current values, and parameters, please refer to:

WT2010/WT2030 Digital Power Meters

The WT2000 digital powermeter series has been designed with emphasis on basic performance (bandwidth, accuracy, response speed, and noise immunity) from the viewpoint of measurement of electrical quantities. The broad range of functions of these power analyzers enable them to be used in various fields of applications.

Power Analyzers and Power Meters

Measure characteristics of devices that generate, transform or consume electricity. Also called power meters or wattmeters, these devices measure parameters such as true power (watts), power factor, harmonics, and efficiency.
