TMCTL

Description

By connecting Yokogawa instruments to a PC, you can create programs and control the instrument remotely(for details, refer to tmctl read me within the library files).
For information on the commands used to perform the actual communications controls using this library, please refer to the communications interface user's manual for your instrument.
A dedicated driver is required when using the USB interface.
