National Instruments® (NI) GPIB / IEEE-488 Adapters
If you receive a warning about a non-genuine NI adapter, please be aware that some very convincing gray-market USB to GPIB adapters are available from 3rd party sources like Amazon, eBay, etc. If you see a warning in NI-Max software about a non-genuine NI adaptor, we cannot provide support for this hardware.
CMM-Manager supports only genuine National Instruments® GPIB adapters. We support the PCI versions as well as the USB to GPIB versions for systems with unavailable PCI slots.
Many other companies offer IEEE-488 / GPIB adapters that claim to be fully compatible with National Instruments, but experience has shown that this is not always the case. We cannot provide support for non-genuine National Instruments hardware.
