Hello Chris,

I have several 1992 instruments. Tried using eBay junk to do GPIB, but
never got beyond HyperTerminal messages.

It turns out that some of those counter/timers were for military use,
and that military GPIB is different.

There is a jumper on some instruments that lets you select standard or
military. Can't be more specific until I dig out the manual.

The Phase A-B feature was very useful for comparing precision

Hello everybody,
i am looking for an interface pc card for a Racal-Dana Model 1992
Nanosecond Universal Counter Timer 1.3 GHz.Please could someone give me
some suggestions about a card that might suite this counter?
I was told that a GIPB-USB interface controller should work (for
instance ADLINK usb-3488A IEEE-488)  but i'd like to be 100% sure.Has
someone maybe direct experience with that?
Thanks in advance and best regards,
Chris Nacci
